Body Painting

 

Being body painted is a once in a lifetime event (or more for those who absolutely can't get enough of it).  If you'd like to be bodypainted please contact me today.

What kind of paint do you use?  Is it safe?  I used water-based paint.  It washes off with soap and water.  If you have sensative skin, I can meet you in advance to paint some "test" swatches on a small segment of your skin to make sure you're not allergic.  I have had numerous people with sensitive skin, and the most "severe" reaction has been sensitive to certain color pigments which just made it a little more difficult to remove.

How long does a body paint take?  It can be anywhere from 1 to 11 hours. Body paint length times vary depending on the detail involved.

Can I wear clothes and be painted?  Clients have the option to wear as much or as little clothes as they're comfortable wearing.  Just make sure its something you don't mind getting stained (just in case). 

How do you apply the paint?  It depends on the paint job and the detail involved.  Most of the time I use a sponge (similar to a paintbrush).  Sometimes I use an airbrush or both a sponge and airbrush.  Watch some of the timelapse videos below. 

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

I added a few silhouettes to bring it together more as a painting. That is why the title has changed to Saguaros in the Morning for this fine art body paint.
