-Super glue.

-Neon acrylic paint.

-Normal acrylic paint.

Using black acrylic paint I took away from the mask.

Step 5: Starting With Colors

Using neon blue acrylic paint I put blue above the eyes and in the start of the chin bone.

I also grabbed the black again and deepened the eyes and added the nose.

Step 6: More Colors

Using neon purple acrylic paint I placed it around the eyes, in between the nose, and on top of the head.

Grabbing neon orange acrylic paint I put that on top of the cheek bones and a little on the forehead.

Step 7: Rainbows Everywhere

Using neon purple I dragged that down onto the chin, blend it into the blue. Then grabbing the orange I blended that into the purple.

Starting the yellow I placed that onto where the teeth are going, then I got black and detailed the teeth.

Step 8: A LITTLE Shadow

Using a tad bit of black I added a few shadows, trying not to over do it.

Step 9: Le Green

Getting the neon green I put that on the rest of the skull.

Step 10: Starting the Neon Blood

to start of the blood I put white on the face in a dripping look. (putting neon pink on soon) let the white dry.

I took this time too paint the words.

Step 11: Pink Blood

put neon pink over the white but put some more white on top of the pink to give it a shine.

Step 12: Last Step

I think you did an amazing job! I love the color combinations and the way that the final product actually pops out from the black canvas. It's not too overpowering, but it adds that nice special effect and the ultimate wow factor into your work! I mean, you could use a smaller canvas, but size really doesn't matter in this case! Again, amazing job! Can't wait to see what you can make next!
