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).



Ha ha ha, Rupert!! You dont know HOW many people will actually take that seriously, and go out and do it! lol  There seems to be a run on B & Q bodypainting....I must try it some time..save me a FORTUNE!! emoticon

Looking to try bodypainting for the first time and just wondered, I want to do the gold body paint, how many jars of powder would I need for a full body and how much mixing liquid ?



Hi there
for one body one jar of powder and one bottle of mixing fluid is sufficient, you will probably have loads left over. I would mix a little at a time as you use it. I used the mixing fluid for a silver staute painting project and found the fluid to be perfect, it dries quickly and gives a very metallic effect, I don't recall the photographer having any problems post production other than maybe the odd touch in where it had worn off. It did however need the odd touch up on a full day shooting but that I guess is expected and what the MUA is there for.  If I can help further let me know, feel free to pm . Some examples of the results we got below.

There's gold leaf and a few other products in there too, you do need to experiment to get the results you want, I'd suggest, before going for the full body effect.

I'm not keen on using latex as a bodypaint, it stinks, models & I hate the smell/ feel of it and theres the whole allergy issue.

There are MUCH better paints out there to be used as actual bodypaint.
in my order of pref:
Grimas
Paradise (by Mehron)
Kryolan Aquacolours (the supracolour mentioned above is the oil based version, much harder to get off/ dry)
Diamond FX
Snazaroo

For gold , silver, etc, go for mehron or Graftobian metalli powders and matching liquid.

In ALL cases, some colours may linger but it varies between models, tho its usually going to be greens or yellows that can do it.

None of them will go on well over oily or fake tanned skin, may react.
