Description - Body Painting by Doug Mitchel
Body Painting, from Wolfgang Publications, uses a wealth of photos to introduce a new art form. Follow step-by-step photos that document the transformation from bare skin to something more colorful and beautiful than skin alone. Ten chapters present the work of ten established artists, each with a different vision and a different approach. A Q&A in each chapter allows the artist to share their preference for paint and tools, as well as advice for those who want to try this for themselves. Photographer Doug Mitchel presents over 600 images showing ten different models as they morph into creations born in the artist's imagination. Whether it's an erotic Fantasy Fest outfit or a red-faced devil with exposed spine, the designs are sure to please. This book is certain to push the evolution of Body Painting. Chapter eleven offers advice on the choice of paints and tools. Find out whether water or alcohol based paint is the best choice for you, and which brands of brush and airbrush work best for painting the human body. With a photo-intense layout, Body Painting is both a visual feast celebrating a new art form, and an instructive how-to book that will help you raise your art to the next level.
