STEP ONE | PREPARE YOUR COLOURS
Begin this design by combining the blue and yellow face paint, to create a green colour that you like.
STEP TWO | STEMS
Using a liner brush and the green paint you have created, paint curving lines around the face as desired, as these will form the stems for the flower design.
STEP THREE | PREPARE YOUR BRUSH
Double load a round brush by covering the brush with purple paint, then dipping the tip into the white paint. Try not to mix the colours too much, just dip it to coat the tip of the brush.
STEP FOUR | FLOWERS
Create the flowers by pressing the double loaded brush against the skin and then lifting it off, creating a multicoloured petal shape. repeat this technique around in a circle, enduring the white tip is facing towards the centre for each petal. Create these flowers at points along the stem to create the design.
STEP FIVE | LEAVES
Repeating the technique of double loading the brush, coat it first in yellow paint, then dip the end in the green paint you mixed earlier. Create leaves along the stem lines by using the petal technique, and do this to fill empty areas of the design.
