Winner Art Couture Painswick Bodypaint Steam punk by Bodypaintingbycatdot Winner Art Couture Painswick Bodypaint Steam punk by Bodypaintingbycatdot
Laurence Caird as a steam-punk-esque Victorian Magic Man
Photo kindly from Tony Cook.
WON 1st place for www.acpfestival.co.uk/
Theme was 'Magic'.

Researching this I found that the 'golden age of creativity' for magic was in the early victorian period when it began appearing in theatres and many tricks we know today were invented. They made incredibly sophisticated automatons, 1 could even draw any of 200 celebrities portraits. Thats his front.
Back -when magic moved from travelling countryside shows/ mysticism using stars, moons and nature to stage shows.

6 hours paint, just me no assistant. Some stencils (bought and homemade) used, rest freehand brush & sponge.

Mehron powder & mixer base, mainly Cameleon Bodypaint paints on top. Glitzer and glitter from Paul Facade www.facadebodyart.co.uk/cubeca...

Hat made (badly but I'll improve) with techniques taught at Alex Hansen's workshop.
July 2013 - HOT day even the models were steaming

I friend of mine would go berserk if he saw this.  In fact, he'd go berserk from the hat alone. XD
