UV Body Painting Abstraction

The images below are from a body painting photography session I did one day that was a complete experiment. See my previous post for the Video from this shoot. I had my model, Jasmine, come over so I could experiment on shooting against a UV background I painted the night before.

Above is the smeared glow bodypaint and below is the design that I freestyled onto her to see how it would look in contrast to the background.

Day of the Dead (Dia De Muertos) Body Painting

Today I finally uploaded one of my newest body painting that was inspired by Dia De Muertos artworks and other body art.

I have always loved the artwork associated with the Day of the Dead celebrations so I had a friend of mine from Georgia, check out her on Instagram as @skydivingbham , model for this piece.

It turned out pretty good. I especially like the way the face painting turned out. I personally think I need to work on my roses, but, hey….shut up. πŸ™‚

Textures, Colors and the Human Body

If you haven’t noticed by now, the only real consistent part of my body art is the human body. As far as body painting goes, the only real running themes are my metallic paintings. I love them. My audience loves them. However, when it comes to bodypaint skinscapes or anything that isn’t metallic makeup, I am all over the place. And, with that said, here is today’s new work.

Getting Started

As we started, I base coated her lightly with a yellow paint wash from my Wolfe Fx Professional (12) 30g Face Paint with Protective CaseΒ to allow the yellows and reds/browns of her skin to give some orangeish hue. This was probably the least messy part of the process because it was the textures I was about to attempt that made the mess.

We started applying the first coat of flour and tissue, fun times.

Most of the time, I am experimenting when I am creating. I have never done anything with flour, water, and bathroom tissue. I cook enough and have done enough playful kid’s crafts to know how the flour and water will crust up. I added the tissue to beef up the mixture. The flour and water mixes both had color added to them, yellows, greens, and reds.

I applied with a brush and pallet knife and reapplied where needed. We gave it time to dry a bit, although it was buffering pretty good. I didn’t have to wait too long after final application to get to the photos.

The Finished Painting

The greenish and blue, sort of, canvas was the background for the shot. My wife, painted a background and it was hanging in the living room for months. After staring at it long enough, I wanted to use it.

The Body In Texture and Color v2

I placed her next to a window and we went through various poses and I think it turned out well.

Overall, I am pleased with how everything looked. The colors were the earthy tones I was looking for. They were rich and subtle at the same time and worked well with the textures and poses Jasmine was able to do without destroying all the dough.

 

The Clean Up

Yeah…about that.
