This was a mixed media experiment, mixing gold leaf applied with honey water and a chrome paint made of metallic powder mixed with oil. I really liked how it turned out. :)

My assistant recommended seeing what it looked like in black light and I was blown away by the appearance of it. The organic feel of it kinda reminds me of a Navi warrior. :)

Very cool. Always good to see more of your bodypainting work. I'm impressed at how much of a difference the black light made. Just goes to show that a little random experimentation can pay off. :D

Yeah...
I'm pretty sure my Dad's going to drag the family off to see it, he likes Sci-fi and he like digital animation, so it looks right up his alley.

Amazing! I love the "Golden" series, but under a black light, it adds a certain depth and texture that makes it even more interesting.

Thanks! The honey is what's fluorescing on her body, which is why it looks so alien.
