The Detroit rap duo Insane Clown Posse has one of the most memorable images in rap. Like the name indicates, the group, made up of Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J, take on the musical persona of wicked clowns.
Yes, this means full, clown-style ICP face paint, which has become the visual calling card of both the group and its fans. Look out on the crowd of an ICP show, and you'll see a sea of wicked clowns in ICP face paint.
If you're a new fan of ICP, you might want to show your allegiance by also wearing ICP face paint to a concert by the group or a gathering of its fans. Appearing like wicked clowns is a popular choice for gatherings of these fans, called juggalos.
Uggs replica Some make up their own ICP face paint designs to represent their own personalities. Others, meanwhile, pay homage by copying the ICP face paint designs of the original wicked clowns, Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J.
If you choose to go this route, have no fear -- doing your own ICP face paint in the style of Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J is easy. You'll just need a few basic supplies to copy the ICP face paint style of these wicked clowns. First, make sure you have a good mirror in a brightly lit area so you can watch your work.
You'll also need special grease paint -- regular drugstore cosmetics won't work for ICP face paint. Go to a costume store and get regular opaque clown makeup in white, silver, and black. A special sponge for blending your ICP face paint might also help to fill in large solid-colored areas. You might also consider getting a special greasepaint make-up remover to make cleanup easier.
Finally, and most importantly, you need to research Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J's own face designs to appear as wicked clowns. Decide first if you want to copy either Shaggy 2 Dope or Violent J. You can use Google to look up images of these wicked clowns, or go straight to the source and look up photos on the official Insane Clown Posse web site.

Ugg Nadaleen Boots Let's say you pick Shaggy 2 Dope out of these two wicked clowns. Over most of the years he's favored largely the same ICP face paint design, with huge, exaggerated eyebrows, a filled-in nose, and a large, sinister mouth. There are a couple of different options to color in this Shaggy 2 Dope design. You can either fill in the large areas with silver, and outline them in black, or fill them in totally in black.
If you're going to use silver, first lightly trace the outline of the Shaggy 2 Dope eyebrow and mouth shapes. If you make a mistake, use the make-up remover to fix the shape now and start over. If you're satisfied, fill everything in with the silver, maybe using the sponge. If you want this area to just be black, do the same thing but in black.
Now, carefully take your white grease paint and trace the outside of the solid shapes, then trace the outline of your face from your forehead to your jawline. Don't extend the white area past your chin. When you have the white areas blocked out, take your white grease paint and carefully fill it all in.
If you chose to fill in the large shapes with black, you're basically done. If you used silver, take your black grease paint and now carefully outline the edges of the silver shapes. When you're done with either of those sets, be careful to let the makeup dry before you do anything else. Eventually the grease paint will set and you'll be ready to head out and meet up with the other wicked clowns.
