Synopsis: Body Painting uses a wealth of photos to show just how the application of colorful paint can transform a child’s face or a woman’s body into another dimension. Each of ten chapters presents the start-to-finish painting project of one established artist.
The best teachers are the men and women who have already mastered a skill. Body Painting used interviews with the artists to explore their preference for tools, their favorite techniques and how they learned their skills.
The discussion of paint choices includes airbrushed body make up, textile acrylics, liquid latex and even markers from companies like Crayola. As pointed out in the captions and the interviews, each material has good points and bad, all are covered in Body Painting.
With over 450 photos on 144 pages, Body Painting is a visual feast celebrating a new art form, as well as an instructive how-to book. (ID=Tattoo).
