Mar 9, 2008
Body painting is one of the oldest and ancient forms of art; it is an impermanent art that lasts only for couple of hours or either for couple of weeks. Body paint design is the attraction to guarantee success, for the one who desires to promote themselves in an untraditional and unique way. Today there are numerous body paint designs and designers from which you can pick the type of body paint design you want and from the desired place as well.

The Body paint designs are influenced by everything and everyone, it can be picked from any where which could include cartoons, history, politics, and anything which you can imagine, any design from flower designs to geometric designs to animal designs, the possibilities are pretty much unlimited. Nevertheless the traditional way for body paint design is a bit time consuming and is incredibly messy.

However, any one who wishes to get body paint design requires loads of information and practical information to get the desired design. Eventually, with the advancement in time and techniques, some better ways to get the body paint design with a little mess and in minimum time have been discovered. Those are:
Markers

The body paint design markers are completely safe to use and these markers gives a translucent effect which is very similar to permanent tattooing. The designs made from these markers stay on the body fairly well until and unless it is not washed off. The most amazing colors that are available in these markers are silver and gold, these colors really looks great and are generally used to making stripes and some large area metallic, but however it is not practical to use these markers for full body coverage.

Air brush make up

This is comparatively better to make body paint designs than the body markers, as these are safer, flexible and gives speed. If you work for a commercial customer, and also doing photo shoot, than the air brush textile acrylics are the best thing what you can use. This is a great balance between utility and low cost, and is specifically formulated for applying on the skin.

The body paint design designed from the air brush textile acrylics dries off quickly and also don't rub off easily, but can be easily rinsed off with soap or water. The key to fine airbrush body design is to lay down thinnest dense coat you can because the multiple or thicker coat flake and peel more readily.

Liquid latex

Liquid latex has gained popularity in some last couple of years, earlier it was available as a make up material but now it is used for body paint design as well and is available in plethora of colors including clear and black. It is also very easy to apply than any other paint and can be applied in less than thirty minutes and moreover, it cleans off really quickly. One single coat of latex liquid is alone enough for body design and can last for a day.

Finally, it is always recommendable to test the skin of the model and the product you are using. Try on a small area first and wait for few minutes to check if there is any kind of reaction.
