Silver Body Paint shoot = Mess & fun! This was a shoot we collaborated on a while back now. We wanted to show the female form in its glory but with a twist.. That twist being the silver paint.
When I purchased the Kryolan body paint, I assumed it would be metallic and would go on to the skin to form a smooth, reflective metal appearance. BUT, while painting Kat, I soon realised this was not the case and I started to panic! As the paint was drying, it started to flake. It wasn’t moving, it was just breaking up and forming a foil effect. This really disappointed me, UNTIL we started shooting. This effect under the lights and on the camera was really beautiful and I was then really pleased how it came out!
We set up a corner booth for me to work in. We bought plastic dust sheets and covered the whole area with them. I used a brush to paint Kat head to toe in the paint, and it needed two coats for it to be really opaque.
Kat was a great model, it was cold enough in the studio, let alone being made to stand almost naked and be painted for an hour! Plus….. We didn’t have a shower on site, so we did what we could with baby wipes and we all went out for pizza after! The joys of being a model ay? :)
