Zebra Face Paint

Introduction: Zebra Face Paint

About: I am a conceptual artist, and my DIY projects are mostly inspired by pop culture (movies, music, sports, TV). I mostly specialize in painting, graphic design, drawing, digital photography, performance art, and…

With its most striking stripes, the zebra is one of the most sophisticated animals with an adaption for all kinds of styles and trends. Here, I am going to demonstrate how to create this simple yet stylish zebra face paint!

Note: I give credit to Instructables member HannahK13 for making a zebra costume, plus the zebra eye design.

Step 1: Step by Step

Here's the step by step process:

  1. I began with some white, following the shape of my jawbone to make the zebra face shape.
  2. Next, I filled in the nose and chin with black.
  3. Then, using a small round brush and more black, I begin making the stripes, starting with a pair of winged eyeliners, then two stripes towards the bottom of the eyes.
  4. I continue to make more stripes on the forehead.
  5. Then, I made a few more stripes to finish off on both cheeks

6-9: The rest of the design is history! It looks simple to make, yet it looks a lot more trendy in person!

Step 2: Done!

Here's a finished shot of my zebra face! This design would be great to paint if you're planning to do face painting at a zoo or at an animal themed party! Either way, black and white are the essential colors for the ultimate artist...and for this trendy animal!
