Body artist Dee Love @ Follies Face reveals, "Personally I like to sketch my ideas out, so I know where I'm going to place the design on the body; Then I write myself a colour chart, For this pop art shoot wewanted bright, bold colours that were vivid with no sheen, and I knew with a UV mix I could achieve a comic book quirk. The superstar palette gave me a fantastic range of flesh-coloured tones to create the effectof the words exploding out of the body, I adore the size of these paints you can have nine colours of similar tones out on the table and they don't take up loads of room and they're great to blend with"So, when I start, I sketch out the design very quickly onto the body in a mild light brown close to the natural skin colour, to give me a rough guide of placement of the words, I then get onto the background colours as soon as possible, The lighter colours such as yellow one first, so the fabulous bright red 'Ka Pow" would go over the yellow with ease,"l always make sure the first layer hos completely dried before applying any other detail of colour over the top, such so the green or yellow highlights on 'Ka Pow" and  'Boom' . As time is of the essence in body pointing I'm never left twiddling my brush, if the base coat layer is drying on one side of the body, I move over to the other and get the next background done. With 'Ouch' I pointed the pink wording first and the blue expression bubble round with a small flat head brush so the point appeared flat and not blobby when moving the point around curves, Of course the real coming together of the piece was the block and white outlines and highlights, these took the least time to do, but achieved a lot and were the finale of the project, In other designs it's not always great to rely on block outlines to create this type of illusion of good work, but it does work, is the foremost quality with comics and some street art, This pop art look was right up my alleyl"
