We had such an amazing team for this Butoh inspired photoshoot. Butoh is a form of Japanese dance where the dancers cover themselves in white body makeup. I wanted to create different textures in the makeup. I like the roughness of the clay against the smoothness of the skin. It was great being able to use some of my special effects makeup techniques to create this look. I made the flowers out of clay, this reflected the beautiful floral designs by Julia Rhoden.

I used bandages and clay for the hair and arm piece. I also applied clay to the false lashes.

The photographer Eric created some beautiful tonal qualities to the images.
