When you think of painting cats, you probably picture a big, colourful, cat-shaped painting with big paint brush strokes.
Well, this simple technique may be the most effective way to paint cats faces in a way that’s less messy and less likely to leave fingerprints.
The technique involves using a large brush to paint the cat’s eyes and lips, and then using a smaller brush to gently paint the cats mouth, brow and chin.
If you have a cat, it’s probably a good idea to try this technique.
It’s easy, and you don’t have to go crazy.
Find a suitable canvas.
Paint the eyes, lips, cheeks and chin with an opaque white brush, and use a medium brush to smooth down the edges.
Brush a layer of paint onto the cat.
This will help seal the pores and paint on the eyelashes.
Use a medium-thin, thin brush to draw a line from the tip of the nose down to the bottom of the cat head.
Use the same brush to brush the mouth and brow.
Use another medium-soft brush to remove excess paint.
Brush the lips, brow, chin and eyelashes with a medium to light brush.
Paint a layer from the top of the eye to the tip.
Using the same medium brush, draw the line from bottom of eye to top of cheekbone, and down the rest of the way down the nose.
Paint another layer from top of eye down the cheekbone down to nose, and paint another layer below the nose from top down to chin.
Repeat this process on the rest for the rest, and voila!
You’ve now painted the face of a cat with a cat face!
Try it for yourself and see if it works.
