Hey Jude Psychedelia Body-paint

Sept 2012

I wanted to enter the postal competition that is part of the UK Face & Body Paint convention,and the stunning Ginger Koneko answered my advert. Di Smith of Frozen Photography came along to take the amazing photos, and Michelle of Purple Pictures was amusing my toddler marvelously (he is her godson).

Ginger Koneko is in the medical profession but also a successful model, possibly the most stunning I have painted.

Her real name inspired the paint – the stripes and colours are a little like a piano the Beatles composed on!

I used swirly foam latex Body FX NZ boob covers.

A mainly Grimas and Diamond FX paint base was blended on and then metallic purple Diamond FX details were added.

 I just loved the colours and the mood of this: Finley was inspired to make a drawing for Ginger,


I added it to one of the cakes for Brian (who’s garden/ house we used) on his 60th,


and Di did some awfully creative edits too!

It just makes me smile 🙂 I called this ‘blissed out’.
