What's your set-up?

Post by Snickell on Thu Jul 30, 2015 9:34 pm

I have searched (what feels like) the WHOLE internet for this!

I've been doing most body paints in my home (a 5th wheel trailer), because hey everything I have/own at my fingertips, table that breaks down into a bed for comfort, temperature control for the model, fridge with snacks 4 feet away, running water and shower for the model to clean up in, etc. But I've been asked to go on location for an upcoming shoot and was looking online for pictures or descriptions of body painter's (specifically, not just face painters) set-ups to make sure I don't forget anything and make it as comfortable as possible within my ability for myself and the model.

So far my packing list is as follows:

Cake paints (derp)
Brushes/Sponges/Stencils
Airbrush Paints
Compressor
Extension cord
Small folding table
Small folding stool
Drop Cloth for floor
Robe and slippers for model
granola bars and water (with straw)
Lycra panties in S/M/L (just in case)
Baby Shampoo (if model doesn't have liquid soap for showering)
and... that's about it.

Obviously odds and ends like baby wipes, paper towels, etc are included, but... I feel like I'm missing something?? I've seen some body painters bring massage tables to work on, is that something I should think about investing in? Or can I get away with bringing a towel and still seem professional?

Any tips/preferences for stuff like this? Or am I just stressing waaaaaaaay too much?

I have the NoNip pasties from Baddass Bodypainting, but might switch to the Monster Pasties in the future. I like that those are simple enough for the model to apply on their own. I didn't purchase them initially because I wasn't sure about that 'shine' effect I sometimes see extending 1-2 inches past the pastie itself....

No-Nips are latex.
I am sensitive to latex.
Make sure your model is fine with No-Nips.

Monster Pasties blend into the design, and do not change the colour/finish of my paint.
They are latex-free.
Models can apply them by themselves, if they prefer.
Monster Pasties are Da Bomb!
