What sort of paint do you use and if it's specifically for bodypainting where do you get it from?

Charles Fox, Covent Garden (and online) -the water-based makeup is one of Kryolan Aquacolor, Fardel, Grimas, Fantasy etc - should all be hypoallergenic but you should still do a spot test on the model's skin.

I used a gold bodypaint from a company called mehron,cant remember the online store I ordered it from but Im sure a quick search will do the job,it comes in a small jar and it mixes with a liquid 'thinner'in order to apply it.I dont know specifically what you have in mind but you could also try kids paint if its just a case of creating something colourful.

Cheers, that's useful - although the site is 'being re-developed' but contact details are there.

Miss Butt - happy to, but need to get some practice in first.

I use "Grimas" but a word of warning, don't use on a model wearing fake tan, it is designed to go on the skin, fake tan forms a barrier and the model has a tough time trying to wash it off after the shoot. My apologies again to the two models that went home looking like pandas! lol! emoticon

B & Q, water based emulsion test pots. Size 12 dresses and above - a 4 inch brush. Size 10 dresses and smaller use a 2 inch brush.

Rub down with a very fine glass paper first (Use 'OOO grade). For delicate skin use the other side of the glass paper.

Go for the matt, the silk finish has reflection and flare problems.

Sorry, just in from the Pub, Friday night is a bad time to ask this question.

(But I am planning a body painting shoot very soon).
A little help is worth a lot of sympathy.

Have a look at http://www.snazaroo.com/ I have been using it for a few years now, I find that baby wipes are the best thing to remove the paint and what makes it better is very few model find this will affect there skin, other makes often do affect skin , I know this for a fact as I tried some on my skin and came out with a big red blob. One tip if you want to use a stencil I use they type you get from good decorating suppliers which are designed to go on walls.
