Painting has been a hobby I love doing…but body painting is a different story.
The skin texture is way different from a canvas. The sweat and the appearance of colours on the skin may differ per model.
With this work, I painted on top of a net and an embroidered placemat to make this design. The birds are already tattooed at her back.
I have to paint half of her body and her face. This concept came from a photographer. I took this photo behind the scenes. I will write a separate post for the finished photo.
Below’s photoshoot, is I think is one of the most interesting body painting job I have to do. I painted her gold and bronze. I used bronze to create depth and shadows.
