I'm a filmmaker who would like to recreate a makeup effect similar to what is shown in the image below. I want to know the best techniques to turn the skin into a surface for a watercolor painting. The more details, the better.
The performer(s) with this makeup will then act and dance in a movie, so the makeup art needs to be stable under heat, sweat and movement.
The photographer is Alexander Khokhlov, and the makeup artist is Valeria Kutsan.
