Long Overdue

I've been wanting to paint my own face for over a year now. The thing is, I don't like getting or being painted much. And boy it's so much harder to airbrush my own face.

Anyways, finally got around to it. But not with the encouragement of my daughter who said after,

'Papa, who put that poopoo on your face?'

Lit by Laser

Just before setting up the photo sensitive plate for the hologram, I took some snapshots of +Sylva Scar Hattington in the dark. 

When making a hologram, everything is lit by laser. So, this is what it looks like when a body painted Scar is photographed under laser light 🙂

Thought it looked pretty cool.

You can see the optics/mirrors that redirect light in the holographic setup in these images too.

Here is a photograph of the body painting I used in a body paint hologram I made, funded by kickstarter

Since the hologram is monochromatic, and required the most reflective value, I went with a predominantly white body painting. I have to say, I'm really into the effect of a mostly white body painting.

See the entire painting timelapse, and some footage of the holography process here:
