Then, I used black and white to fill in the features on the turkey, including his face, goblet, and feathers, along with a few strokes of white for highlights throughout.

I must be an imbecile because I have no idea what you are using for colors. All eyeshadow?

I actually used Neuron Paradise face paint in red, orange, yellow, brown, white, and black.
