You will always have that one kid who is determined to have a pony or a dragon face painted onto their face and the sense of overwhelming confusion (with a hint of panic might set in). How on earth do you paint a horse on a kid’s face and make it look like a horse? Well there is no need to fret. In fact what I’ll tell you next is not only easy but quicker and uses less paint then doing a whole face. Cheek painting. If one stubborn kid demands a unicorn then you can with no worries at all.

Like the blank faces I included in an earlier post, I’ve included some blank side faces for you to print and practice with yourself. Soon you’ll have the hang of it and no kid shall ever push you off balance ever again (in regards to face painting that is.)

Here is a boy’s face side on.

And here is a girl’s face side on.

You can include these in your face painting folder, displaying designs for children to choose from.

To give you a few examples of cheek face painting, I’ve posted two designs, a dragon and a unicorn. Be creative and imaginative and try different colours, shapes and glitters!



Tomorrow I’ll go into face painting designs for half the face that look pretty awesome. Happy face painting!

Read a review of a book I recommend here.

    Hi, my names Etta I’m 12 and a half,thank you so much for these templates to draw the face paint design on. I’ve been looking for these for ages and stumbled upon them whilst looking for face paints. I am making my own brochure, because I am joining this club thing and I am doing a presentation thats supposed to represent me. I love face painting and arts and crafts so I chose to do face painting. I have my own set that I got for christmas. Anyway, thanks to you, I am a step further in learning to be a professional,I will keep this website address so I will come back for further notice! oxo thanx!
