Looking to do a photo shoot of my 10 month old baby boy and give to my huband for fathers day. My husband is an avid mechanic/engineer and big into trucks, motocycles, etc.

I have an idea to take some photos of him holding wrenches in just his diaper or some old jeans rolled up and i want it to look like he is all greasy!

What can I use in place of grease cause im obviously not putting grease on my 10 month old. hahaha.

I was thinking chocolate syrup??? Thoughts???

Any other ideas for this shoot also welcomed.

I was going to suggest molasses too, but good luck with the clean-up! :)

choc syrup would be the most fun, but how about vegetable oil with food color mixed to the color of 'grime!'

chocolate pudding for the thick grease, crunched up oreos for dirt or maybe even the brown off-brand cookies. reddish syrup for transmission oil, have a spray bottle handy if you want to have the baby look like he's sweating (cover eyes and spry on forehead).

Add overalls, wrenches, and a grease rag in the back pocket and you're ready to go. You can even add in a flashlight, work lights, and other mechanical things in the set.

You can add some chocolate "quick" mix (the bunny powder stuff) to water and make a paste. Heck you could add the mix to chocolate syrup to thicken it into a paste and add texture.
