Here are a few examples of Elven facepaints and a short explanation on how to achieve the effect.
Here is a good example of Frostmane facepaint as modelled by the lovely Rhi. Yes she isn't wearing ears, but we didn't have access to any when we were doing the photos. This is a mix of dark blue and white facepaint, which are blended together.

Here is a not so good example of grey Stoneface facepaint as modelled by Matt. This is a mix of black and white facepaint, just put a few dabs of black and white facepaint on and mix together. It isn't as thick as it should be because you can still see my skin beneath it. But I'm sure you get the idea.
