Rake Brush Shout Out!

Notice the little white spots  on this rainbow cat’s face? I made these using a fan rake. The rake brushes are brushes with sections of the bristles cut out, and I use them to add instant pop to designs. People watching me paint always get excited to see rows of little white dots pop up…it is kind of crazy.  If you don’t use sparkles, this is a simple way to add some bling.

Lace is easy to make with these brushes too! They also make nice background baby’s breathe type flowers in floral designs. You can get these brushes at my store www.jestpaint.com under fun face paint tools. 🙂

DRAGON Step by Step by Clash Anna b-Nana


Using a rainbow cake or split cake, load a ½ or ¼ sponge or foam wedge with at least two colors of paint. The one I used has two shades of greens and blues. Start at the eyebrows and sweep up..it is a monster…so it doesn’t have to be perfect.


Now make two swipes coming from the temples down over the top lip and under the nose. I kept the same color on the outside…but you can switch it up if you want.


Run the sponge along the sides of the nose, keeping the lighter side on the top of the nose. Fill in the gap between the eyebrows.

STEP 4 Fill in the cracks with the sponge. You can wiggle the wedge to make gill like designs on the side of the eyes.


Draw large black slits over the nostrils to make huger nostrils. Paint the outside of the nose and the eyebrow arches.


Make a sharp gill like scaly spiky effect by linking together arches with your round brush.  Paint thin black lines coming in to the center of the face where the arches meet. Fill the black around the eyes and make scary nose wrinkles.  SCARY!


Highlighting the cheekbone gill things and adding teeth and horns complete the look of this dragonish beast!
