7 Deadly Sins – A ‘sinful’ Body Paint series

7 Deadly Sins Body painting

Uh-1 Productions photographer, Sharyce Rains, was inspired to take on a bigger photo series and wanted to put a unique spin on the 7 Deadly Sins by using body painting. This series would not have been what it is without its Indiegogo backers and talented team of body painters, models, hair stylists and make-up artists.

When this series started Sharyce knew she wanted to use a coffin as the set and asked body painters to paint their sin as they portrayed it, with only one request, to incorporate each sins color. With six body painters this allowed the series to have a variety of artistic styles. As the series progressed it seemed painters favored painting outfits on the models. By the third sin, Sharyce requested the remaining sins stayed consistent with the outfits.

The next day, May 18, 2014, they were all feeling pretty slothful which was a perfect finish to the series. Sloth even had a lazy puppy to add to the mix. After nearly a year the series was complete! “It was a very sinful experience” Sharyce stated.

“This series is dedicated to my grandmother, Sandy. She has shown endless support and has been nothing but open minded along this sinful journey. I don’t think she knew what I was asking of her the day I requested to use her court yard for a body painting shoot.” - Sharyce

“This project took 12 hours to paint 16 models. We started with 15 models and realized we needed one more once on set…I had to jump in and be painted by one of my fellow artists!  It was a neat experience to stand where my models stand and to be a part of my own project in a new way.” – Julie Hassett
