Artist, drag queen, former nudist and born again Christian James Kuhn has turned his hand to face painiting. Banana anyone?

Kuhn describes his creations as self-portraits because he uses his own face as the canvas for his work.

In his blog Kuhn says: “I really have become totally obsessed with face painting and i think about what i can do next all the time.”

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

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

Kuhn turns his face into a cheeseburger complete with gherkin. He started face painting his face after he was snowed in by 12ins of snow and had to miss work.

Corn on the gob … sweet

A rockin’ role … as Kiss

A-peeling … monkey mug

Use your melon … go green

Basket case … food for thought

Work-of-art … bodybuilder

Kebab … what are skew looking at?

Fruity … strawberry look

Happy … painted smile

Kuhn’s unique take on a halloween Dracula mask showing two screaming faces joined together.Two-faced … don’t look, he’s behind you!

Sweet tooth … pineapple

Snack attack … feeding the face

Operation … board game

What’s the point? … prickly

Phis-hog … pig

Baby face … embryo

Tut tut … Pharaoh-face

Air head … James’s face as the Goodyear blimp

Bird-brain … Tweety Pie

    You made some good points there. I did a search on the topic and found most people will agree with your blog.

  3. 3. Glowing face paint Says:


    My suggestion about glowing face paint is that apply thin layers of face paint. A thick layer can cake and crack, spoiling the design.
