Step 1 

Step 1 of Tiger face painting design

Apply Sparkle Yelllow to a damp Snazaroo high density sponge.


Create a mask across the eyes, down to the cheek bones and down the nose leaving the muzzle area under the nose clear.

With Snazaroo Sparkle Orange sponge the brow and around the face, again leaving the muzzle area clear.

Step 3 

 Step 3 of Tiger face painting design

Using quarter of a sponge, build up Snazaroo white and press (not rub) into the muzzle area. This pressing action will create a 3D effect and stop colours merging.


Highlight above and around the eyebrows as shown by dabbing gently with the remaining colour on your sponge.

Step 4

Using a fine round brush build Snazaroo Black all the way into the bristles of the brush until you get a nice tip. Hold your brush like a pencil.

Starting at the inner corner of the eye, sweep in a snake like motion across the eye lid and around the outside of the brow. (Ensure the child keeps their eyes closed at this time). Fill in the eye lid as shown (below right)

Do the other eye in the same way.

Step 5 

Carry the line from the inner eye half way down the nose to complete the Tiger eye effect.

With Snazaroo Black on a fine round brush, paint around the nose area as shown ensuring you don't paint over the tip of the nose.

Paint whiskers as shown using the tip of the fine round brush.

Step 6 

With the Black paint on a multi purpose brush, add your Tiger design using a bit of imagination or as shown.

Using the medium multi purpose brush (or a Black lip stick) paint the lips in Snazaroo Electric Gold.

For a professional artistic finish, you can add Regal Red Glitter Gel (apply this to the wooden blunt end of the brush) and carefully touch up the Tiger features.

With Snazaroo Liquid White on a fine round brush, add dots to complete your design.

Painting Tips

Before loading your Face Painting sponge with Snazaroo paint, ensure that the sponge is damp but not wet. Build the Snazaroo colour into the sponge to create a rich creamy texture. Never over wet the sponge or you will find you get a streaky uneven finish.

When using a thin fine line brush for detail, always build the colour into the brush and upto the tip. This is especially true when applying Black lines and detail to your design.

Cut a round face sponge into quarters to create smaller patterns such as spots and triangles.

If you are going to try and replicate this design for a number of children and want them all to be as similar as possible, enlist some help and asign each volunteer one face painting stage. Have the children move down the "production line" in turn and voila! - cloned faces for your party or production. This is a great idea for school events, carnivals and large parties.
