New Body Illustrator Palette

Post by Debi's Doodles on Sun Apr 25, 2010 12:31 am

Has anyone tried this paint yet?? Any good? I'm considering buying it.

I always have parents who come up to me and ask, "How long will your paints last?" And when I say it comes off with soap and water these certain parents grab the kids arm and drag them away. Thought maybe this would be a good palette to have in those situations or just in general if someone wants an arm, back or leg design to last days.

Lots of people use the BIC palette. I don't have one, but they love it!

cool! Thanks.

Do you happen to know the average time it last? 3...4..5 days? I was trying to search on the web for reviews or pics but couldn't find anything, yet.

Also do you or anyone know how long does it take to dry? I'm guessing since it suggests to use baby powder for faster drying that it doesn't dry as fast as regular face paints.

I've looked at it for temp tattoos. I've heard it comes off w/ rubbing alcohol.

I have temptu and another brand and find them quite time consuming!!! The alcohol you need to use 91 or 99% isopropyl is always drying - it's like constant rewetting in alcohol, swirling and painting. They are great for realistic looking colored tattoos - something more for specialty or FX painting not a busy crowded gig.

I bought a temptu paint pallet a few years ago. I tried to do a pool party and had similar results (I was trying everything then). Constant re-wetting. Less then opaque colors, and certainly not for a crowd of people.

Wow, cool! I did not know about this! I am going to see if they sell it in Holland as well. For tattoos its really great, I have a lot of parents telling me that they think it is a shame that the tattoos made with facepaint do not last.
I think they would love this Smile.

I am sorry Razz I do not answer any of your questions.

It isn't face paint, and will not go on like face paint.....just keep that in mind. It is temporary tattoo ink in a cake form. It is fussy to deal with, just like Temptu and other similar brands, so it is not good for designs you need to do quickly. You should tell people it will last just like other temp tat inks.....on average 3-5 days (but it can last up to 7-10 days with very good care just like other tat products).
I like all of the colors in the pallet except the purple.....it is much fussier and does not go on opaque the way the other colors can. The white and black are particularly nice compared to other brands. Let me know if you have any other questions.
Here is a photo of the first design I did with my BIC pallet when it arrived. As you can see, I tried to use as many colors as I could in the design since I was trying it out.

We discussed BIC before here - do look for that thread.

BIC is great stuff - it does indeed take some getting the hang of - I was just getting ready to discuss some tips with my dear friend Robbie Hay and planned to pull in Dawn Dewitt who offers a good class on using this product. I always have it in stock and am telling non-painters how to use it because it is very popular to use in cosplay. Indeed it is an FX product and has wonderful applications for special effects.

So BIC is best used on children only at pool parties but it is great if you are looking to market designs that stay on - hand painted tattoos - then this is the perfect product. I am still learning to use it to it's fullest but here's what I know.

Be sure to really mix it well - again, mix it well to keep your cakes wet. If you don't it is watery - hence not opaque. If you mix it up nicely it is very opaque - as you can see in Lisa/modernmagic's posted pic. Esp new cakes, you have to get through that pressed layer to get the makeup working.

You must use 99% alcohol (not 91%) or BIC activator nothing else will work.

If you are working with oily or sweating skin you will need to prep the skin to get the lasting effects of many days - yes it can last 3-7 days depending on skin type and activity levels. Prep by cleaning with alcohol - not 99% which we do not use directly on the skin - use 91 or 71%.

BIC dries very quickly, as do alcohol makeups in general.

Once you learn to really work with BIC you'll like it. You can get a refillable palette or buy ind cakes. In addition to hand painted tattoos use Kryolan Body Illustrator for FX effects, with airbrush tattoos to freehand names or details, and with glitter tattoos for outlining and detail effects.

hhhmmmm I did search the forums before I posted and didn't find the thread scratch but I spelled out the whole name instead of just BIC...not sure if thats what went wrong?

Anyway THANKS so much for all the info and thanks for the pic Lisa!! I think I am going to try it. I do the girls softball tournaments in my area, which usually last all weekend, and I'm sure the girls would love to have their number with team colors on the arm for the whole weekend instead of just one day like I have been doing.

They are definitely worth having in the arsenal especially with summer around the corner or those special long lasting tattoo requests.

I have a group of girlfriends who want to have a "tatt" party where they can select the tattoo they would like and try it out temporarily!! as several are contemplating the "real thing" and want to see how they and spousal units like it first. So I will pulling them out for this and a few of the pool parties.

I know some people like to line their glitter tatts with black alcohol based ink for extra oomph and pop. It does look very nice!!!

Oh and I forgot to say I have never had a colored alcohol ink hand painted tatt last more than 3 days (but we are humid in FL). Good luck and let us know how your experiments/experience goes.
