Looking at photographing a model and throwing some paint around
I'm basically looking for advice on with sort of paint, or am I better looking at the paint they use in the indian festival of colours

Poster paint is as good as anything. They use it for kids in school so it isn't harmful...though I wouldn't want it in my eyes, or any other paint for that matter!
The Works in most High Streets sell a range of paints suitable for use, and its very cheap too.
Good luck.

Do be very careful regards your choice of paint - that lesser-known body painter Gert Frobe had terrible issues with it

wilkinsons and Tesco do a range of kids poster paints, Wilkinsons have a gold and silver in the range, might be worth a look. I have used the Orange, Green and Yellow ones easy to clean off although might stain clothing.
