I heard this song last year and fell in love with the art and stop animation in the video, and with over 340 million views on youtube, I'm definitely not alone.
But in case you've been hiding under a rock for most of 2012, here it is:
First, I painted my bandeau. Because you can't see the front, I tried to use the colors from the back to judge what the front would be like. Once I painted my Bandeau, I added black lines with my sharpie and let it dry.
We found that the easiest way to paint the underwear was to paint them while wearing them. This being the case, you may want them painted by someone you feel comfortable with.
Once you've finished painting your bandeau and underwear, spray your entire body with Mehron Barrier Spray and let it dry. Then bring out your body paint and start mixing your colors to match them to the acrylic paint.
Start painting your body, using different sponges for each color. After you've completed the shapes, add the black lines using a fine paint brush.
Here is the completed look:
The lighting we had doesn't show the colors well at all, and we didn't do it as well as we could have if we had more time to perfect it.
But at this point, all you need to do is put on your wigs, paint you faces, and watch everyone freak.
