Hi all,

I'll have to shot body details with water drops.

What is the trick to have beautiful drops ?

Thanks for help.

First oil body then spray on water. You may have to wipe and spray again but you will quickly get the results you want.

Mix a bit of glycerine with the water to significantly increase its surface tension--makes the drops stay discrete drops instead of being so quick to run.

Baby oil and a spray bottle worked great for me.

First put the body lotion on your skin and
then sprinkle water on you, It will work.

Lotion or baby oil skin first
Spray with fine mist of 50% water 50% Glycerin (better drops and slows evaporation)

By the way, ordinary glycerine is made from animal fats--usually pork. If that's unacceptable for your model, a pure vegetable glycerine is also available, although you may have to order it over the Internet.

You can also add flourescent tempura paint to the mix and use a black light for cool effect. You can add black or brown or ... and smudge it around for grunge.
