El 3 de julio nos reunimos un grupo de pintores, fotógrafos y modelos… La cita fue en mi estudio que se encuentra en las instalaciones de Ediciones del Ermitaño… Esta es una breve crónica simplemente testimonial de lo acontecido… En la segunda parte presentaré los resultados retratados en el estudio, es decir, los body paint terminados.
This is not a how-to video, but just some observations on the process of body painting for nude photography.
Transcript of audio at titles:
Warning: Some people are allergic to latex. Make sure your model is not.
Body paint available from Liquid Latex World
The design was applied with a 2" foam brush.
Drying time was about 10 minutes.
Tess: "It feels strange when it dries on your skin. You can feel it tighten up."
Heat, air flow, and low humidity will reduce drying time.
Until fully dry, the paint will stick to itself.
Tess: "You should get just a close up of [that]."
Tess: "We tried latex paint and it's pretty exciting and sticky. its a pain to get off but not that painful. its fun. The body hair, i have more right here [on my arm], it's more sensitive. My legs I'm not having any problem with, because they have no hair on them."
Hair removal 2-3 days prior to painting is advised.
Clean-up time was about 20 minutes.
Some bits of paint did not come off right away. Latex remover is also available.
When you're using it, you have to be careful not to press your skin together because it will pull off. Its messy but fun. It feels very weird. It feels like pulling a piece of tire off your skin.
