Funny Faces Portrait Art


  • A4 sheet of ordinary printer paper
  • Acrylic paint in the following colors: flesh, powder blue and white
  • Curly brown and blonde synthetic doll hair (optional)
  • Small pieces of felt in the following colors: red, yellow and pink
  • Colored felt-tip pens
  • Paintbrush
  • Pair of standard scissors
  • Quick drying glue
  • One potato
  • Paper towels
  • Small round cookie cutter
  • Knife


  1. Start by making a potato stamp. Note: this step should be done by an adult. Slice the potato lengthwise in half. Place the cookie cutter on the cut side of the one potato half. Push the cookie cutter into the potato and use the knife to gently cut away any excess potato around the cutter. Remove the cookie cutter and blot the potato stamp on a paper towel. Now it is ready for printing!
  2. Paint a layer of flesh acrylic paint onto the potato and print it onto the A4 sheet of printer paper.

  3. Repeat step 2 until you have stamped ten circles onto the paper. You can adjust the number of circles you want to stamp based on how you choose to use this project. Allow the stamped circles to dry thoroughly.

  4. When your circles are dry, you can customize your Funny Faces Portrait Art. Use the colored felt-tip pens to add smiley faces to the stamped circles. Add rosy cheeks and freckles to some of the faces. Use the paint brush and the white acrylic paint to add a small white spot to the eyes. Glue hair onto some of the circles, or use felt-tip pens to draw hair onto others. Cut small half circles from the felt to make hats for some of the faces.
