Take another look at the sentence:

Walking in the hot summer sun, Kenny's face dripped sweat.

Walking in the hot summer sun, a participle phrase, comes right before face, an illogical target. [Kenny's, a possessive noun, functions as an adjective describing face.] Unfortunately, faces don't go walking by themselves, without their bodies attached!
