Not to Scale with Rachael Ray

After working on a previous painted hand for Oprah Magazine with photographer Dan Saelinger, Dan presented me with the challenge of creating scaly painted hands for the March Issue of Everyday with Rachael Ray. 

 Never one to shy away from a body art challenge, I was excited to give a relatable depiction of those who suffer from dry,cracking skin.

 The process of replicating this reptilian body paint started by building up layers of Lux Airbrush paint from Mehron. From the base, intricate scales were painted in several shades of browns,greens and yellows before adding in the individual hand painted cracks and speckles.

Dry hands never looked so good.
