Tina smith - UK (artist)
A1. I’d been face painting and wanted to learn more, I went along to a face painting conference and saw body paint and wanted to do it, 3 years later I got the chance.
A2. I loved the idea of transforming a person.
A3. I don’t normally work with anyone but I do run the Midland body paint project with Sarah Smith
A4. I’ve attended a few events and competed but the biggest must be the first competition I entered and my 3rd body paint at the Face and Bodyart convention and I came first in the Intermediate section
A5. It normally takes 8 hours
A7. I love movie sci-fi
A8. We ask our models to wear briefs and also nipple covers
A9. It depends on the brief, if it’s a film character you’d use a prop to what they have, if it’s horror and type of prop to enhancer he design and bring a character to life. Clothing can be used if you have a time limit or the model feels happier with clothing.
A10. Give it ago, it’s great fun and a great bunch of people
