Step 1: What You Will Need
Mirror/ friend to help you: You need to be able to see what you are doing or you could end up with one scary looking beard. A friend to draw it for you would also be pretty nice, but sometimes it's fun to surprise people with a crazy antic.
Reference picture: I actually use two. A frontal view to understand the big picture and a side view to understand the intricacy of the beard itself. These pictures are fairly easy to find; Google "Seneca Crane Beard" and both come up on the FIRST ROW OF RESULTS!
Step 2: Outline It
Step 3: Connect the Dots
This doesn't have to be perfect; this is just to finalize that you are symmetrical! As you can tell, I didn't do it perfectly, but I was able to get rid of the stray dots afterwards.
Step 4: Fill It In
Also, this is the point when your markers start to act difficult. You've been using it so much that some of the natural oils from your face could have gotten on the marker and it doesn't seem to want to work. DON'T WORRY! All you have to do is grab a piece of paper and scribble on it until the oils from the marker are gone. While that often works, sometimes it can make the oils permanently ingrained into the marker. I suggest you also run it under some cool water, as well.
Step 5: Clean Up
Simply take a washcloth and run hot water on it, put a little soap on it, and wash. You don't need to scrub. If the beard smudges all over your face and seems to make a bigger mess than you started with, this is normal. Simply rinse the washcloth in the warm water until the marker comes out (it should come out fairly easy) and wipe your face again. It's really quite simple. DO NOT USE COLD WATER. DO NOT USE PAPER TOWELS/TOILET PAPER/TISSUES/OTHER SUBSTITUTES. These things can irritate your face because you will have to scrub too hard. MAKE SURE THE WATER IS HOT. Not so hot that you scald yourself, but warm enough so that your pores feel happy. DO NOT USE SKIN CARE PRODUCTS DURING REMOVAL. Regular soap will do. Hand soap or a bar of soap should be fine.
Finally, rinse the marker off of the washcloth. Remember to use hot water and it should come off without a problem.
