World's Most Incredible Face Paintings

Face painting is the artistic application of cosmetic “paint” to a person’s face. There are special water-based cosmetic “paints” made for face painting; people should ask before having face paints applied what products are being used. Acrylic and tempera craft paints are not meant for use on skin and are not acceptable, nor are watercolor pencils or markers. Products not intended for use on skin can cause a variety of issues ranging from discomfort to severe allergic reactions. These guys are so good in face painting that sometimes you can just recognize their eyes!!!

World's Most Incredible Face Paintings

A man of many faces, artist James Kuhn creates some of the most incredible and bizarre masks ever seen. The eccentric face painter calls his creations "self-portraits" because he uses his own face as the canvas for his artwork.

The 46-year old artist is halfway through his project to create a design for his face every day for a year, which he began in March after he was snowed in by 12 inches of snow and had to miss work.

James got the inspiration from photo exhibitions of a picture a day. His 365 creations range from cartoon characters and animals to his favorite foods.

Corn on the cob.

Kuhn uses real popcorn to add more realism to his popcorn box creation.

The Picasso of face painting has plastered his mug with a menagerie of images including Tweety Bird, King Kong, movie monster Hannibal Lector, zebras, and leopards.

But perhaps most striking are those of food — transforming his face into a giant box of pop corn, a cheeseburger, pineapple, frozen TV dinner, shish-kebabs, and even a cornucopia.

"I saw other 365's but they are self-indulgent or just plain silly." said James. "I wanted to take it to a higher level."

"Face painting is the most exciting thing that has happened to me in a long while!"

Based out of Three Oaks, Michigan, US, James takes his inspiration from anything, including children's games, and loves to paint on everything, including flesh.

Kuhn does his own take on Mickey Mouse but on the theme of oranges.

Mr Pineapple Head. Kuhn even adds a real pineapple to the top.

"I really have become totally obsessed with face painting and I think about what I can do next all the time." James says on his blog.

The artist says the worst part is painting the inside of his nostrils, as he ends up spitting them for hours.

He says he's been an artist all his life, and even drew pictures in his oatmeal as a child
