4. Thick to thin and thin to thick
The most pleasing effect in face painting is achieved when your lines have sharp ends (or at least one end) and thick bodies. Vary the pressure on your brush to obtain lines of different thickness. This skill is very important for a face painter, but it may take months and even years to achieve perfection. Don’t give up if your hand doesn’t listen to you.
Notice the thick parts of the lines and the thin and sharp tips in these designs. Their alternation creates balance. Both of these designs are being studied at the International Face Painting School.
