  • Step 1

    Create bushy eyebrows, a moustache and small beard (along the jawline and up to the ears) using dark brown paint.

  • Step 2

    Using black paint, put a second layer on your brown features, making sure to fill in any gaps.

  • Step 3

    Draw an eyepatch over one eye (making sure your little one keeps it closed when doing so) and draw a line diagonally across the face to add the string.

    Finally, with red paint, draw a scar line on one cheek, adding stitch lines across it with a darker colour.

  • Voila!

    Now your mini Jack Sparrow is ready to take on the high seas!
