Nick and Brian Wolf – Extreme Face Painting & Face Art

Evil identical twins (mwahahaha) Nick and Brian Wolfe bring their face painting designs and prowess to IMPACT Books, showing just how extreme face painting can get. While they’re at it, they offer up some tips, tricks and insights into the world of special effects makeup. Their epic journey into the world of face and body art began by drawing dinosaurs and superheroes when they were young, and it’s the same passion and enthusiasm that fuels their work, today. Their step-by-step demonstrations and easy instruction make their first book, Extreme Face Painting a hit year-round, but especially on that most sacred of holidays, Halloween. Use their techniques to make sure you get ALL the candy!
