Traditional Christmas Fairy Body Paint

Dec 2011

I’m lucky enough to get quite a few models and photographers contacting me hoping to work together, and do sometimes arrange a shoot with some of them. Emily I’d painted as a bronze statue for the Paintopia promo shots, and she was keen to get painted again.

Alex Burlingham was still in school and planned to do photography at Higher Education, but the portfolio she sent me was already really interesting.

We arranged to meet up at her house where she had an actual studio set-up, impressive for a school pupil. Once Emily was in big pants and the bra inserts I prfer to glue on (they are huge and cover the whole breast so no naughty bits show), I’d found a traditionally-decorated Christmas Bauble I liked as inspiration,

and to carry on from the glitter-blowing Frost Fae shoot, had got some fake ‘snow’ that you added water to. It puffed up, looked fairly realistic, and was dry to the touch.

This was my favourite Grimas dark red/ burgundy over gold Mehron/ Graftobian powder and matching mix.

A fun afternoon, thanks ladies! And good luck in your career Alex.
