does anyone know of a kind of makeup/body paint that would be more or less unobtrusive, but that then glows when light shines on it?

thanks,
joe

Kryolan "Luminous Effect Color" (Leuchteffekt-Farbe in German.)

Reacts to UV light and charges up, then glows for a bit.

Not cheap.

This isn't going to be much help, but..........I ran across a softcore porn movie on Cinemax (IIRC) one night where it was a trio of "actresses" body painting each other under UV light. There had to be at least six or more different colors all of them fluorescing quite brightly under the UV. I would bet money it was shot in the valley so that body paint has got to be available somewhere in the LA area.

Artistically used one could create some really dramatic images with the paint. As it was the trio spent all their time smearing the paint on boobs, crotches, and fannies, mixing all the paint together so it ended up poop-brown as one would expect.

What, that's not artistic!!?? :blink: The tale of three lonely young women longing for love and fulfillment amid the unfeeling, cold, chaotic urban sprawl of the naked city, the metaphoric underpinnings of classical literature drawn from Dickens, Dostoevsky and Austen melded into a modern allegory of man's desperate search for validation and meaning as these women exalt their form though highlighting in brilliant, glowing statements the source of their their very essence only to discover that when they ultimately come together as one, they inevitably loose the vivid, vibrantly unique artistic statement of each individual and merge into the singular muted color of feculent decay, devoid of individual pallet or singular expression which is the supreme commentary of the inevitable hopelessness of being but paradoxically, thought in the blatant and unrepentant sexuality of the three women, there is an implied reaffirmation of the life force and by extension the act of living it's self. A mesmerizing comment on the duality of man told in florescent Tempra paint and silicon that resonates through the the root of every man who watches it!! B)
