Bunny Rabbits are one of the most popular face painting designs! Below is an easy guide showing you exactly how to paint a bunny rabbit face!
Step 1: Take a #4 round brush and paint the area around the eyes. The brush strokes should be painted from the centre outwards to create a ‘fur’ effect. Then paint the area around the mouth, chin, lips and lower cheek area with white. The brush strokes should begin in the centre and go outwards – like in the photo.
Tip: If you’re painting more than one person – use a Q-Tip cotton tipped applicator to paint the lips and then throw it out and use a new one for the next person! Good hygiene habbits are a must.
Step 2: Using the #4 round brush use pink to paint the bottom part of the nose and the higher parts of both cheeks. You can sponge the cheeks on if you wish for that rosy glow.
Tip: Don’t have pink? Mix a little red and white together in a palette and make your own shade of pink!
Step 3: With a #2 round brush use black to outline underneath the eyes. Ask the person you’re face painting to look up while you paint underneath the eyes. Paint a thin black vertical line from underneath the nose to the bottom of the upper lip making a little triangle at the end. Then paint a thin black horizontal line across the bottom of the upper lip and extend this line about 1 cm on each end. Then paint a few black dots on both sides of the vertical line like in the photo.
Tip: Don’t paint too close to the eyes or else you’ll get eye irritations and you don’t want that!!
Another Tip: Instead of painting a black outline around the eyes you could use a black liquid eyeliner or eyeliner pencil!
Step 4: With a #2 round brush, use black paint to paint a few fine lines (whiskers) on both sides. Start the lines just a little outward from the dots and extend them outwardly across the cheeks.
Step 5: With a #2 round brush, use black paint to outline 2 big teeth underneath the horizontal line on the bottom lip.
Tip: You may need to add extra white in the teeth to make it stand out.
And that’s all there is to it! If you like, experiment with the design, make changes where you want, add some different colours, maybe wear some bunny ears to top it off and most importantly have fun !!!
