STEP-BY-STEP Guide

Foundation

Take three small pieces of SF Wax, roll them into thin strips and cut them in half. Press three above the right eye and three below it. Blend the edges with a paintbrush and some water, and then use a finger nail to add a long groove in the centre of each strip.

Color-In

Using a sponge, cover the face in white paint. Allow this to dry and then take a fresh sponge and some purple paint and dab the paint on the right side of the face, on a slant.

Details

Now take a thin brush and some bright red paint and layer lots of it inside the wax grooves. For an extra bloody effect, you could try adding some fake theatrical blood.
