All you need is a black and white paint color for this look. Keep the focus on one eye by painting around it. Paint the inner circle with black and the outer circle with white. On the white paint put a few black lines to me it’s a little scarier. You can make the scary skull as spooky as you want by just combining these two colors and maybe add some shades.
It may look hard to paint, but its quite easy to do. This look will make your kid look scary and spooky. Here is how you can do it.

Black paint is all you need to complete the cat in a hat look by adding whiskers and the nose paint.
