When the idea is to face paint a dog design, don't feel you need to stick to being completely realistic. Add a nose, spots for whiskers, and a tongue, then use some imagination for the eyes and "edges" of the fur. That way it's easy to add variation and create an original face painting design every time.

Start your soccer ball face painting design with white, painting a circle around the whole face for the outline of the ball. Then use some black to paint on various black pieces of the ball, along with some thin lines to show the edges of the white pieces.

The black piece of a soccer ball are pentagons, so have five sides, whereas the white segments are hexagons, so have six sides. But most people won't stop to count, they'll rather be looking at the overall effect of the soccer ball design you've painted on your face.
