I recently experimented with body painting shoots.

You can check out the pix in my profile.

The 1st was to make a girl look like she was made out of qubes, but in order to make it look the way I wanted it, I had to photoshop the $#!t out of it and over did it.

The 2nd was to blend a girl in with the forest.  Kinda worked.

The shoots took a long time, my buddy did all the painting (while I passed out sleeping).  You can check out his site at http://www.untitledagain.com

Very different use of body paint.  I dig the crystalline looking one...reminds of that old 80's toy Crystar (or whatever it was called).  I'd like to see it as a different color, if possible.

I really dig the forest/chamelon one, maybe because its something that feels more familar.  I love the blending you did on it.

The one in the bush it's gorgeous! smile

I'm gathering informations and tips in order to body-paint myself, I still can't find out what kind of colours to use.
I would avoid acrilyc, it takes days before the model can get her skin rid of them sad ... have you got any suggestion for me?

Thanks, Claudio
