Giger themed body paint for European Body Art at IMATS LA. Model @chelseathepale. I waited a whole year to work with her. Can’t wait for the next time. I made the prop glasses. The head piece got scraped at the last min. Wasn’t feeling it. And a shout out to @mouthfx for the awesome effect. at IMATS LA

“The muse”. I met @jennarosemari 16 years ago in Orlando. Her outgoing free spirt is what inspires me. We’ve worked together countless times. One of my favorite is a piece that I did for IMATS back in 2014. The irony is my inspiration was Art Deco and the LA building The Wiltern. At the Show @joynerstudio told me this was where @cinemamakeupschool was located. This past trip I got to spend some time with Jenna and also got to visit Cinema makeup school. It’s funny how everything comes together. #eba #Imats #Imatsla #artdeco #cinemamakeupschool #thewiltern #artdecobuilding #la #losangeles #bodyart #bodypaint #airbrush #stencils #iwata #teamiwata #headdress #headpiece #teal #model #body at The Wiltern

It’s funny how small the world is. @jennarosemari and I meet @korinfaught 7 years ago at an Orlando Tool concert where I replicated her work as a body paint. Last week Jenna was in Califorina and had opening night pass for The LA Art Show. By chance Korin was there showing her paintings. Spectacular running in to each other almost 7 years to the date. at LA Art Show

@blkarmstron’s red devil. Demo with @Mehron. Assisted by @beauty_efx Model @grotesquebeauty @morphstore ran the foam face. Paxed with @melproductsusa The body is coated with a Mehron‘s Red Grease paint. Then brushed over in mineral oil for extra shine. What really made it pop were the bright lights.

Behind the scenes for @blkarmstron’s red devil. Demo with @Mehron. Assisted by @beauty_efx Model @grotesquebeauty I sculpted the cowl and face, @morphstore ran the foam. The body is coated with a Mehron‘s Red Grease paint. Then brushed over in mineral oil for extra shine. What really made it pop were the bright lights. I used the full length @themakeuplight. Contacts by @circleafx *A funny story is I thought I scored a killer deal on lenses. Half the price that chloe painted for hers. When @ishootthedead helped as lens tech. He asked where the other sclera was. Come to find out I only ordered one. 😂 hence only one red eye. All in all everything worked out nicely. #mehron #greasepaint #oldschool #newschool #blakearmstrong #nix #nixbodyart #bodyart #bodypaint #red #reddevil #devil #sfx #prosthethetic #latex #cowl #themakeuplight at IMATS LA

The Iwata Eclipse prop CO2 Air brush gun. A little behind the scenes and back story. The concept came to me two years ago. I wanted to build a giant air brush for IMATS LA. But I needed to figure out a way to also incorporate it to a theme. Years prior on SyFy’s Naked Vegas we had a ‘Googie’ challenge. The airbrush prop would fit perfect as a space gun and I still had the space helmet. So that was the easy part. Concept ✔️ Now to figure out how to build the prop air brush and the CO2 gun. I could have bought the C02 gun on amazon for 600 or build it from scratch (I should have bought it) but I did learn a lot about compressed air and dip tubes. As for the airbrush I took a lot of ingenuity using hard plastics figuring out shapes that looked like the Iwata parts. I used @smoothon Free Form Air or a lot of it. Lastly getting the prop chromed out. With so much going on in life I did have enough time to ship it to a friend to have it at Imats in time, so I faked it. I air brushed it to look chrome. Which I think turned out better in the end. Now to get it from Florida to LA. I decide to ship it on a Saturday and get is there on Monday days before the demo day. Well, it got lost and was MIA on Wednesday. The post office still had it in Florida. At this point I didn’t think it was going to make it in time. Luck me it showed up the day before at Chloe’s front door. So there you have it. My Googie Space girl.
