Painting over body hair

Post by facepaintingbydanielle on Wed May 29, 2013 5:38 am

Hi everyone!
Does anyone know if there's a way to paint over body hair? Specifically - my partner said I can practice 'paint sleeves' (tattoo style) on his arm. But painting over a mans arm hair is no easy task! Is there a product I should use?
Thanks in advance Very Happy

I painted an anchor on a very furry man's forearm.
It did not pass the "what is it?" test after his hair sprang up after being pasted down with hair spray and painted over.
I am not an esthetician.
I am fighting a losing battle with my own body hair... why would I want to take care of someone else's body hair?
I don't think I wanted to tell you that last sentence. Don't read that sentence.
Going back in my box now.
xoxo
Happy Painting!

I have my models shave. If he's not willing, get spirit gum and tack it down with that first. Powder, blot and dry before trying to paint over it.

If you duck tape it, you could paint on top of that, (and then when he takes it off you'd "naturally" have a smooth surface for a week or so...)
