Frog face paint: Just So Festival 2017

Ribbit ribbit! The frog tribe are jumping into our week of Just So Festival tribal tournament face paint and costume ideas today. This energetic tribe is always easy to spot at the festival, with some truly awesome costumes. Using a Snazaroo party pack and a Snazaroo set of brushes, here’s how I created the frog face paint idea, based on the beautiful tribal head for this year’s festival. Instructions: Paint the main area of the face green using a sponge (I mixed my own shade of green using the Snazaroo green and a bit of white, otherwise the green was…

For this version you will need a stretchy hair band or circle of elastic…

Fill in the rest of the face…
