Watch this short tutorial from VideoJug, and learn how to create a vampire face from the painting pros! You'll be amazed at how easy and fun it really is.

Hello, my name is Kat Sinclair, I am a professional face painter. I've been painting for eight years. I'm going to show you some tips, tricks, and techniques for doing your own face painting at home.

I'm going to show you how to do a vampire face painting. We're going to be using cake white which is slightly more translucent than normal white, and gives a nice powdery finish. So, this is my model, and we're going to cover him in cake white.

You need to make sure that the white is nice and even, all over the face, not too wet, not too dry. You might need to go into the eye sockets, because those are going to be very dark this way. You use your sponge and squeeze it, to get into all the smaller parts of the face.

Okay, so that's the white base done. You're going to keep the same sponge. And blot that with a little bit of the light purple, and put that into the eye sockets.

Then we're going to use a thicker brush and with black paint. Use that sponge to just bring the black down, to make the eye sockets really dark. I'm making the eyebrows nice and hairy, and pointy, so their a little bit more evil.

I'm bending down the sponge to darken the eye socket, while the paint is still wet. Our vampire is very old, so we're going to need a lot of wrinkles. Which, you use the tip of your brush, to draw in a few wrinkles on the forehead, and then a smaller brush, to draw crow's feet wrinkles around the eyes, if you look in the mirror, and scrunch your eyes up.

You'll be able to get a good idea of where they go. I also want to do a bit of shading underneath the cheekbone. Just to show that, he's a very hungry vampire, and has not eaten for a while.

So, he's quite skinny. Then, I put a few lines around the mouth to make him look quite evil, and a bit of shading around his mouth, to make it look quite grumpy. Then of course, our vampire's going to need some teeth.

So, load a nice pointy brush with white, and just add teeth at the side of the mouth. One last thing you can add is just get some nice dark red, and just add a bit coming out of the mouth, to show that he's been drinking his supper. Then add some onto the teeth as well, and that's how to paint a vampire.

I want to suck your blood. .
