How: apply make-up to a character

Hello, i have a question on how to achieve an animation of a character applying some kind of military face paint onto his face. The character will have a base face texture on him, and i need to animate his finger applying the face paint.

Thank's in advance.

Several possible methods come to mind:
Create a UV map for the face that has the paint animated. Have the characters hand animation follow what the texture animation is doing.

Use a particle emitter to lay down a string of particles from the tip of the paint stick. Use HV sprites as the "paint"

You can also use a technique similar to my vines tutorial on the LW8 3rd party CD. Lay down HV sprites as I described earlier.

Use a free plugin called LLJ Draw Shader Plugin found here:

Use Prems Surface Effectors plugin

Use Worleys Acid Plugin

yeahh, i've tried a simple test using Worley's Acid and it came out as i wanted it to be. Thank's a lot, Larry

here's the test file if someone interested to check it out.
pls rename the file extension from .mov3 to .mov

Thanks again, have a good day
