Body Paint
Hello. I was planning on doing an Avatar Neytiri costume and I was wondering what the best kind of body paint and application technique to use. I was originally thinking Liquid Latex but some disagree. If not that, what is the best brand of body paint?

The best method to apply it would be by using an air brush. You can get bodypaint specialy formulated for use with airbrushes. The only problem is getting hold of the airbrush, unless you know someone who is willing to help spray you.


I looked for the airbrush paint but it was very, very expensive. So maybe brushing it on is best.
Although you can get cheap airbrushes that will run off of a can of air for about £20.

You can contact my Brother he does a lot of bodypainting as a job. He uses all different kinds but i will ask him if you want. He uses an airbrush and compressor. I'm also thinking of making one of the Na'vi style aliens. i got some idea which is in my information section.

Also, i just thought, you could get a body suit and get that airbrushed with fabric paint. Then it would be much quicker to get ready. Just paint your face, hands and feet and you are away! You could re-use it as many times as you want without needing help to get ready each time.

Check out this awesome video below to see what I mean
