Covering someone in silver foil

Hi everyone, me again emoticon

I appreciate this might seem strage but...I was wondering of anyone has advice on sticking silver foil to someone - not all over, just selected parts...well, maybe all over if it goes well I suppose.

What kind of glue could I use? It would have to be something that doesn't stick too permanently I think.

Thanks!

I used to use water to stick it to windows, great for keeping light out of rooms. Not sure if that would work on skin though...

Don't glue it (B&Q kit anyone?) Use vaseline.... works for gold leaf, will work for tin.

Spirit gum?

Works for beards and tashes maybe work for tin foil.

Slightly off at a tangent but you might want to think about using space blankets instead of foil (depending, of course, on your actual idea) as they are rather more flexible whereas with foil you could find it constantly tearing if/as the model moves and also, potentially, quite uncomfortable.

Ha! Tara, don't be so suspicious. I have an idea for a group of shots I'd like to do which involve my willing and excited participant(s) to have bits of them covered in super shiny foil.

Jane, that sounds fantastically. I'm so trying that later...I just need someone local to experiment on.
