How to paint 5 o'clock shadow


Painting 5 o'clock shadow is easy: Paint the affected area gray. If you wish to highlight the shadow area, add a little bit of your base flesh color. Boom, Bob's your uncle... Hey, I actually do have an uncle "Bob."

This technique can be used for 5 o'clock shadow as well as shaved heads (such as the pate on a samurai or the short growth on a monk.)

  1. At college in the early 70's the song was 'I like a clean shaven man!' Possibly linked to a Gillette advert. I still like to keep my figures well shaved or with full beards!
