D and J love face painting, and D, 7, wants to do it herself. J is easy to please, but sometimes it helps to get some tips on how to do it better. Today we’re trying out a cat with some instructions from Snazaroo. D has a Hallowe’en craft class booked for Friday and has to go in Hallowe’en costume so let’s hope it works as well as it does in the instructions.

How to…… Cat
Stuck for inspiration, then why not create a face that will have your child looking like the cat that got the cream? With soft pastel colours and a touch of glitter, it’s a winner every time.
1. Using the Snazaroo Rainbow Face Painting Kit, take a sponge and create a white base that extends out above the eyes and down to the top of the mouth.
2. Again with a sponge add a highlight colour – pink, purple or green all work well – across the eyes and the cheek.
3. Using a brush and some black paint, outline the edge of the base colour, add some whiskers and colour the lips and the tip of the nose. Finally add some sparkle with a little glitter dust or gel.
