Hey Portland, I've got a question about body paint (white) and where to buy it in bulk.
Here's the deal:
I'm curating a show called "The Human Canvas Project" on August 21st at the Fez Ballroom downtown. What this consists of (besides me making music), is a stage full of humans painted white, with video being projected on them (as well as some idm/breakbeat, dubstep and so forth after this performance/musical art section).
The Canvas portion will last an hour, and we need to cover 15-20 people... so it's going to get spendy. They will be moving some, but not necessarily grand movements, and who knows, cracking might even provide a cool texture.
So what I seek your help in is finding the best solution, preferably locally but hey, sometimes the internet deals are too good to pass up.
The ideal thing would be gallons of white body paint, but I'm also willing to look at the white clay route (as again, cracks could be cool... but I don't really want big chunks flaking off).
I've got some leads and have chatted with some folks who have done similar things, but still haven't found a good bulk source, and am hoping you or someone you know might be able to assist me in gaining such knowledge.
Even if you don't have any idea how to help... if you think the project sounds neat, you're curious or whatevs... feel free to head over to http://www.happyhumans.org
to see more about what this shebang is all about.
And thank you.
