I've been on the net searching for like an hour already and my butt's kinda tired, plus I got dishes to do...that's why I decided to check in here.  Anyone has links on tutorials or how-to or whatever.  Basically what paints are good for what (for ex. if my model's going on a daytime fashion shoot, or at a club, or fashion show, or a shoot in the ocean), how to prep, etc.  I'm taking a basic make-up course and one of the areas I'm looking forward to is fantasy make-up.  I'd like to go all out though since I'm taking pictures of my models to build a portfolio.  I'm sure someone in all of us has a little sun'in-sun'in they can share.   Grin  THANX!!

I never have an idle day,
New ideas come my way.
Don't know yet what I'll create,
But my imagination's great!

i did it once with acrylic paints but they cracked a bit. i hear latex-based paint is pretty good and peels right off ( easy cleanup). where do u take ur makeup classes? i am looking to do that. i want a licence or certification so i can do professional work...

Very high quality theatrical makeup. I swear by them.

Never try to teach a pig to sing; it wastes your time and it annoys the pig.

I've heard harquus is a good body paint if you want it to be black; it looks exactly like a black tattoo from the pictures I've seen.  And it's water-resistant so it would last a day or two if you needed it to.

Acrylic paint mixed with a bit of dish soap works in a pinch.  It stays on all night (ie-clubbing on halloween!) looks pretty good and washes right off.
