How to Zebra Paint a Face
Zebras have black and white stripes. (zebra image by Henryk Olszewski from

Transform a face to look like a zebra with paint. The face paint design works well with a costume or alone. Use paint specifically made for face painting. Other types can contain ingredients that are toxic to the skin. It takes about 20-30 minutes to paint on the zebra design because you have to let the layer of white paint dry before applying the black paint. If you are painting the face of a child, give her something to read or watch to encourage her to hold still.
