London Fashion Week – Body painting – Follies

14463725_10153747474267554_250026598_nLondon Fashion Week is big part of the capitals creative calendar – Follies and The Living Art show were excited last week to be invited to attend The London Pacific Fashion Collective at The Connaught penthouse suite in Londons West End.

The team from The Living Art Show worked for over 4 hours to produce these x 2 fabulous looks. The pieces were inspired by Liz’s love of the pacific areas including her trips to Hawaii to swim with wild spinner dolphins. Combining the colourful beautiful flora and fauna of the areas as well as a tribal representation of the ocean that provides us with so much.

The headdresses were made by Liz using a combination of Silk and fresh flowers and leaves. Bound to represent the headdresses worn by the local women. The tail pieces nor bustles added some fun and fashionable movement to the looks.

The looks were created by applying a liquid brightness gold base then blending aqua colour cakes in various shades of greens and blues into these. Flowers were applied using handmade stencils with pros aide glue and large glitters, from their favourite store Kryolan Uk. 

Leaves were applied using a combination of hand painted one stroke leaf and flower designs and stenciled on leaves. The stencils were pre cut using heat tool and Mylar film.

The final pieces were finished off with hand painted swirls and curls..using a combination of DFX and Wolfe face and body paints.

If you would like to learn how to create any of these effects shown here- regular body painting lessons courses and workshops take place at the Follies academy in Kent- On our 2 x day courses you can lean all of the techniques required to be able to produce full body paints like these.

The Living Art Show

The Living Art Show body painting festival at the Maui Waui Festival in Suffolk was a huge success.
With top body painters from across the UK the crowd were wowed with the beautiful body art designs in the final catwalk show.
As the art work took shape the Living Art Show marquee was open for guests to come in and browse and look at the fabulous art work taking shape.

The guests were treated to some fabulous body paint designs as well as demonstrations and a whole host of workshops that included; a face painting demonstration and workshop showcasing some fabulous animal face paint designs with the lovely Juliette Eve; special effects; a Make-up cut crease demonstration by Jules Ferrerra; Glitter work on the face and body provided by Glittertastics

The Saturday night raved on with a fabulous U.V. face and body paint party, with plenty of ultra violet and neon paints around for the public to have a go at painting themselves! The Living Art Show also offered free UV face painting eye designs and glitter eye designs for the evening party and the guests loved the neon face paint designs.
