Body Paint at the Chelsea Flower Show

Body Paint at the Chelsea Flower Show

The Body Paint at the Chelsea Flower Show, in Primrose Hall Ponies, GOLD WINNING Pavilion exhibit, was created by The Living Art Show artistic director Liz Bylett.

Primrose Hall Peonies commissioned Liz to create the stunning body paint to be a part of their beautiful show entry this year. Caron and Bronwyne from BrittPR created the amazing stand concept. The Living Art show is proudly sponsored by Magic Box who supplied the products used in creating the Body Paint at the Chelsea Flower Show.


It’s Liz’s second time body painting at the Chelsea Flower Show, she says about the body paint;

“It was great privilege to be involved in creating this fabulous piece of the show this year. I was especially excited as Peonies are my favourite flower and I have many in my garden.
I love the beautiful Peony colours, textures and the way that they remind me of an English country garden in the lovely Spring sunshine.
The body paint took a few weeks of planning and trials to see which techniques and paints created the best results. I enjoy the creative challenge of body painting plus the fact it\’s transient and only lasts for one day. It takes about six hours to create a fully body painted body and as any artiste will know, it can take that long sometimes just to paint two peonies alone! It was incredible at how much interest the body painting raised. The press all gathered round to take images and it drew crowds to the stand. 

We had a fabulous day Jess looked amazing amidst all of the glorious flowers from the nursery. We met many people, including some hob nobbing! We had had a fabulous day. 

Yoga practitioner and life model Jessica Saunders is the beautiful Body Paint model that you see in the images. I\’ve body painted Jess before, I love working with Jess shes such professional, you may recognise her in the Goddess Body paint earlier this year.\”
