I thought most models wore a standard bra or pasties and regular solid underware. I could be wrong as I don't have much exp. in this area. But I'm sure someone will share. Sorry I'm not much help. But congrats on the gig

Dear rubyzcreationz:
Buy Lycra panties or thongs. Cotton sucks up an enormous amount of paint. Ask the model what size underwear she wears and buy the next size up, so you don't have the underwear cutting into her. As for a bra... a Lycra sports bra is good. A cotton sports bra is bad. If you do not know the composition of the bra, you may be able to spray the bra with a sealant like Kryolan Sealant, or Green Marble SeLr and then paint on top.
I think I answered this same question a few months ago.
As for the airbrush question.... I used an airbrush many years ago in art college where I took Illustration. I believe the airbrushes and the paint are MUCH better now. I spent a lot of time unclogging and cleaning my airbrush. I am willing to purchase a new system after the happy crazy summer bookings.
If you go into Google and type in facepaintforum: airbrush
or facepaintforum: body paint
you will find threads previously written to guide you.

I hope this helps.

I have purchased Lycra underwear at Zellers. Try Target or WalMart. Read the fabric content labels to guide you. I prefer to buy the 'nude' color underwear. Of course, the model keeps them afterward. They don't have to be expensive to be useful for body painting.

I have purchased nipple covers from WalMart. You can also use medical tape to cover nipples.

I painting at Fantasy Fest in Key West last October.  It was hot. It was humid.  I was painting 4 zombies for a Zombikathon.  My zombies would be perspiring during the biking in the heat and humidity.  I prepped their bodies with Green Marble SeLR. I painted using sponges, brushes, no air brush.  I painted with Paradise, Wolfe, Kryolan, and StarBlends.  I sealed it with Green Marble SeLR.  The top application made my line work a little fuzzy.  Not enough that I felt it was ruined.  My zombies looked great at the end of the Zombikathon.  The paint did not sweat off or smear.  

I would not use Green Marble SeLR on a face.  It stings a little going on.  (I experimented on myself).   The brand of paint did not seem to matter.  I have used Rimmel base skin prep before and it worked to keep the paint from sweating off.  

I hope this helps.

I do "roller derby" girls here and use a starting spray of Graftobian 'setting spray', then paint on Wolfe colors using a sponge and cover with the Graftobian spray again. So far this has been working well, believe me these girls sweat and the Wolfe doesn't seem to rub off. Have a look at the ProsKnows website for nipple covers and 'down unders'. They are a little expensive, but work very well when body painting. For airbrushing, check out the GREX line. It has performed well for us. Best of luck.

You can avoid the silicone kind of bras because they are very thick and are very obvious when they painted over there.I wolud prefer a thin latex kind of material which is using separately for body painting and as well as cotton.

In Liquid Latex there are so many kinds of airbrushes are available which is suit for you easily.
Liquid Latex Fashions Online Body Paint and their Air Brush will be useful for you and also they are available in online also that you can purchase easily.
