In the making....
« on: February 07, 2017, 09:32:03 pm »
Finally tried this out for the first time a few months ago.






The paint is Mehron Paradise AQ; the colors are Lagoon Blue (stripes) and Sky Blue (background color). It's a water-based body paint; it's messy but it comes off easily in the shower.

I've found that layering it on more thickly makes the paint more resilient to being physically disturbed (it doesn't rub off easily), but this also uses far more paint. I've only painted part of my upper body and one arm so far, but the results are fairly intoxicating.

There will be more to come as I continue to develop how I want to look (garments, etc.), although progress will be slow.

Another round of practice painting, this time with my left leg:



Getting rid of the damn hair was hard. I didn't even manage to get all of it.

Some of the stripes didn't come out great either, because I was in a hurry. It would have been hard to explain to my housemates why there was blue paint smears on the bathroom floor. >.>

Thanks.

The stripes were also a bit more difficult here because I had to make sure they were correctly distributed. I managed to make them look semi-natural (some variation), but making sure they are spaced correctly and that the widest section is facing in the right direction was a bit tricky.
