Body Painting - nipple cover warning!!

Post by Guest on Thu Jan 01, 2009 5:24 pm

Here is how I spent my New Year's Eve...

http://shannonfennell.com/maddhatterscollagesmall.jpg

Things I learned

1) Young women who work in bars CAN'T tell time (they were early... but still !!)

2) No matter how good your paint/make-up is and how well it usually holds up there is no way to protect the paint job when it is -30C outside and they have to go from your studio to the club with god knows what in-between.

3) Remember to tell my assistant when the parameters for the job change at the last minute - initially they were all to be wearing bras due to the local liquor regulations but the club owner phoned me on the 22nd to say he got permission to use nipple covers only - I didn't tell Naomi and she walked in to two topless women who didn't have their nipple covers on yet... but she was a trooper and no one caught she was in shock!!!

4) My transfers that I made with tattoo ink on parchment paper worked fantastically... just need to find a paper that is a little more absorbent but still more resistant than bond paper!

5) Remember to tell all the girls to arrive with their hair and make-up already done so they don't put us off schedule messing about in the bathroom for a half hour!!

It was fun and I think they turned out well. We made the decision not to worry about shading/shadows, etc. due to time contraints and the venue - dark club so the lighting was not going to be overly bright!

All the colours are UV reactive - except for the black.

We only painted the tops... the bottoms are real... (at least they appeared to be!)

The last two we painted were the corsets - the masks were a last minute addition as we were talking while painting and they thought they looked like super heroes, so we added the masks... they made up their super powers (reading minds as in "I can tell what you're thinking... NEKKID BOOBIES!!" and "I bet you are thirsy - have a Red Bull!")...

I hope to get photos from the club of all the girls together and in the UV lights...

This is so cool! Do you market bars or did they just call you? I was thinking about adding some local bars to my mailing list for mardi gras.

Actually, it was an inquiry via my website. I think it was my car that attracted their attention...

I haven't specifically marketed to bars as I don't go to them and have no desire to spend time in them... but this job was great as they came to my studio for painting.

Hello nice site, thanks for the information provided on face paint but I am looking for the body paint. I want some tips about the base paint for making tattoo on body with body paint.

Welcome to the Forum! Make sure you head over to the Introductions subforum and introduce yourself!

As for finding information on body paint, I suggest using the search bar and if that doesn't turn up satisfactory results, then you can make your own thread in the appropriate subforum asking the questions you need answered. Hope you find what you're looking for!

YAY Boobies! lol!
sorry its just one of those words (so immature I know...) like sphincter!
Great work! My husband is a red bull F1 fan. I'm not quite sure I understand tho, did you create a tranfer for the logos out of parchment and tattoo ink? Like baking parchment? Some of the US stuff is quite different to what we get down under I'm not sure what that equates to here. How did it transfer? Like an outline??

4) have you tried the paper that tattoo artist use? Is is called something like tattoo stencil paper, and work great! (unless you have a blue/purple/dark base, but on light skin, it gives a really clear outline)

And super job =)
