Day of the Dead Festival - Face Painting

During college we spent the first 6 weeks researching four subjects for our face painting project.

Cats, Clowns, Fantasy and Halloween.

I love sugar skulls whether it's tattoo form or sugar form and I wanted to recreate the depth of colour and intricate detail that goes into each kind of design. I chose to do half of the face as I wanted it to look like a mask.

Mexico celebrates Life by holding the Day of the Dead Festival. The Sugar skulls are hand crafted out of sugar. The designs vary, but all seem to incorporate flowers. These in my design.

Halloween Face Paint

Today I have set up a DeviantART account, it's a social page that allows people to share their artwork with others. I already have a few friends on there that are following me after just posting my cat face and Halloween face paint.

I love Halloween, it means that we can all get creative in college and some really good effects have come to light. Here is my assessment piece and also some images of the make-up I did for a friends Halloween party.

Final Piece: Needs some editing but we can't change the images for our College portfolio but I really want to play around with some of them for my personal portfolio.
