Introduction: Blue Cat Face Paint

Get your feline on with this simple to paint Blue Cat face paint inspired by Josje Wolters' version from her 2008 book Just For Fun Faces.

Note: I have been stepping in and out of my crafting comfort zone, because I do face painting as well. So, this is a huge step into showing what I can do besides working with a pair of scissors and a piece of fabric. In fact, it's definitely the cat's meow, for sure!

Step 1: Watch the Video

This is just a short video about me painting my face like the blue cat, while teaching how to paint it. You can see the video here or on YouTube using this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nf1Y5FbinRY

Step 2: First Steps

So, based on the video, I will give you a visual on how I painted the blue cat. Note that all of the paint colors being used were made courtesy of Mehron / Paradise.

First, I started with White face paint for the eyes and the muzzle.

Step 3: Add Shades of Blue

Then, I sponged on a layer of Light Blue for the base, along with a swipe of Lagoon Blue around the edge of my face for a blended effect.

Step 4: Add Final Details

Then, I went back into both my White and Lagoon Blue for the features, like the nose, whiskers, whisker holes, stripes, and painted the top lip for a bit of pop!
