How To Apply Face Paint
Face Paint Process
|1||Access a mirror or dresser to change your appearance|
|2||Select the Face Paint option at the bottom right & then choose "custom design"|
|3||Select the design you wish to put on and preview it|
1. Access A Mirror Or Dress
"Would you like to change your appearance? Yes/No"
By interacting with a mirror or dresser, you'll be able to change & customize your character's appearance as you like. Make sure to get these items first!
Can Also Use The Custom Design App
"Wear/Display Here/Display on Ground/Change Design"
Accessing face paint is also possible from the Custom design app on your Nook Phone, so you can use that if you don't have a mirror or dresser. The one drawback here is that you won't be able to preview your look until you actually put it on!
Move To The Rightmost Tab
"No Face Paint / Custom Design"
In order to be able to edit face paint, navigate to the rightmost tab labeled "Face Paint/other" with the L/R buttons.
Choose The Design You Want To Put On
You can preview and choose a given design on this screen. If there's something you don't quite like about the design, you can also choose to edit it.
Custom Design Face Positions
The 4 quadrants of the 32x32 grid will correspond to the parts of your face in the manner outlined in the above picture!
How To Remove Face Paint
Remove It Through The Inventory Screen
Choose The Item You Want To Remove
"Do you want to remove this?"
Can Also Remove At The Dresser/Mirror
You can, of course, remove face paint at the dresser or mirror as well. Navigate to the same Face Paint tab and then select "none" to remove it.
