This recent Day of the dead face painting design by Brenda Bourges was inspired by of course non other than El Dia de los Muertos, the Mexican yearly tradition of honoring the dead. Although Brenda is a face painter in Orange County, any face painter is capable of doing their interpretation of a Day of the Dead sugar skull. It’s fun, extremely shocking and you can get pretty creative in decorating the skull with fancy swirls and curls, teardrops, gems and glitter.
For this day of the dead face painting design I used:
- Wolf Brothers white and black
- Diamond FX light blue
- Diamond FX pink
- Diamond FX purple
- Diamond FX yellow
- Diamond FX red
- Mama clown gems
If you are a face painter or aspiring to be one, this skull face is a sure hit for your portfolio.
