  2. Use the white paint with the medium to paint the eyes. Mix the medium with the Lavender paint 1:1 ratio. Use a fine brush to add detail around the eyes. Paint worm-like lines up and across the top of the mask to make a "brain". Trace the nose area with arcs, and use the end of the brush to add dots to the cheek areas.
    Step 1 Example
  3. Mix the Pearlizing Medium with the Jack O'Lantern Orange paint. Add vein details to the eyes and head. Paint the lips. Add veins to the cheeks.

  4. The black paint mixed with the medium will be used for detailing. Fill in the mouth area. Draw pointy ears on the sides of the mask. Trace the eye area and extend it with the black paint.
