Halloween Zombie Mask Painting

Cheap plastic masks can be picked up at most dollar or department stores. With a few techniques, these masks can easily be turned into authentic artistic scary creations.

How to make your own Zombie masks:

  1. Try to sand off as much paint or sparkles that the mask came with. Paint it white with gesso or acrylic.
  2. Mix some red and white and a bit of yellow to make a fleshy tone. Paint the mask with this colour.
  3. Make a rotting skin colour wash by mixing some olive green acrylic with yellow ochre. Use water to keep the wash thin, then paint over the flesh tone.
  4. Once its dry, use a thick dry brush to lightly dab some left over green/yellow mix to highlight some areas around the mask.
  5. Mix some permanent rose colour with a bit of yellow and a touch of cerulean blue hue to make a good blood colour. Dab this onto the mask in desired areas. Create thin lines to make the impression of cuts.
  6. Mix a bit of black with the red and dab lightly onto the blood spots/cuts on the mask to give the blood some dimension.
  7. Once everything is dry, use some more black paint to create stitches over the cuts.
  8. Put the masks up on the wall to scare away the dead!
