Body painting is a perfect kink for those individuals who like to start off slow before building their way up to new experiences. Getting started with body painting is fairly simple. All it takes it a bit of creativity and a willingness to let your inner artist out. There are numerous types of paint available for body painting, and what you choose depends on yours and your partner’s unique preferences. Before you begin body painting, there are a few things that you should keep in mind in regards to paint selection, the act of painting, and clean up.
Find Your Paint
There are so many different types of paint out there it can almost be a little overwhelming. Some of the paints you want to definitely avoid, however, are things like common interior and exterior paint. Sure, it that type of paint gets on you when you’re changing up the color in your bedroom, but this is definitely not the type of paint you want between your legs. You should also avoid certain types of acrylic paints that are not meant for your body. Yes, they’re inexpensive, but they aren’t worth the trouble.
However, paints you can use range from edible body paints that come in various colors and flavors to paint made especially for body painting. You can even use liquid latex and add an even more creative element to your artwork.
We’ve found that the best way to paint for beginners is placing a sheet or old blanket that you don’t care about on the floor. Have your lady lie on top of it, grab some brushes or use your fingers, and get to work. What and how you paint depends on you. Challenge yourself and each other by using your bodies as living canvases. Don’t just stick to body parts like her back or her stomach. Go nuts.
Admiring Your Work
Depending on what type of paint you have purchased, there are plenty of ways for you to sit back and enjoy your work. For instance, if you happened to grab a few bottles of body paint that can be used with a black light, make sure you have one or that you purchase one. Turn off the lights and switch on the black light and marvel at the way both of you glow under the light.
If you opted for edible body paint, go ahead and taste your masterpiece. We recommend, that you read the ingredients on the bottle before you begin painting. You want to make sure that neither of you are allergic to the paint.
Finally, if you went with liquid latex, the fun is just getting started. Once the latex dries, you can have fun peeling it off of your partner. If you’re not into the pain of having your body hair ripped off, you may want to make sure you shave for this. If you like a little bit of pain, skip the shaving.
Clean up for these products is a simple shower. Make sure to oil or lotion down to avoid your skin drying out from the paint. Toss the sheet in the washer or in the trash and you’re done. Lots of fun and ridiculously easy clean up.
