HI All,

am looking for suggestions for making someone look wet or splashed for a photoshoot.

I did something similar last week and the client had already organized sugar water - but the model found it very itchy. So im looking for an alternative - something that will hold droplets/wet look for photos but without the irritation.

Im thinking maybe a baby oil spray or a mix of oil/water??

Any suggestions? The shoot is Friday and the client is very important so i dont want any more itchy models!!

I tend to put on a lot of baby oil then spray water on top (just not too cold!).

Try a thin layer of baby oil, and spray a mix of 90% water and 10% glycerine, it doesn't evapotate too quickly then.

Baby oil and water.
That's how I did the torso shot in my port.

Don't offer to put the baby oil on for them as that may offend (some).

Baby oil and water like above has mentioned. Use a squirty bottle for water and have it warmish otherwise your model will most likely get goose bumps lol xxx

Better than baby oil and does not make model smell like a creche on the way home, is food quality corn oil. Takes water well but try using Golden Syrup instead of water for a very interesting effect.

Boots Soap & Glory Easy Glistening™ Dry Oil Body Gloss spray can. Followed by misting with water. Quick, no touching skin to make cover uneven, not bad for skin like baby (mineral) oil.

use closer to the skin and much more generously than intended to get a wet look rather than a shimmer.

Glycerin and water mixed as said above about 70% water to 30% Glycerin should do the trick in a cosmetic spray bottle. The Glycerin will stay put and beads on the skin whereas baby oil tends to run more

I always use glycerin and water looks more natural than baby oil and beads up like sweat i've used it a few times especially on sports and boxing type shoots
