Artist Paints Perfect Wetsuits On Models And It's Impossible To Tell The Difference

Artist Paints Perfect Wetsuits On Models And It's Impossible To Tell The Difference

Check out the image below - a woman in wetsuit, right? Wrong. She is actually 'wearing' nothing but expertly applied body paint and the longer I look at this picture the less sense it makes.

Award-winning Artist Paul Roustan painted the four surfers to make it look as though they're wearing wetsuits and I honestly wouldn't have spotted it if I didn't already know. I reckon these women could rock up on any beach and no one would notice, or they'd be slapped with some sort of public indecency fine, either way, I'm interested to know.

Los Angeles-based Roustan is considered one of the best body painters in the world, and looking at this video it's not hard to see why.

Roustan even paints seams and creases onto the 'outfits', which he applies using both an airbrush and paintbrushes to create the finished product.

The only clothing the women are wearing is strapless thongs (sounds painful) and nipple covers.

And, while Roustan's work is amazing, I think I'm mostly impressed at the durability of this paint, as after messing about in the water, all the 'wetsuits' look perfect, with no smudges or patches.

I can't help but wonder how they're going to remove this paint when they want to...someone grab the white spirit.

I mean, I can't see it catching on in the real world, can you? Imagine how cold you'd be for one thing (and let's not dwell on what a male version would look like) but you've got to admit that Roustan is seriously talented.

When he's not painting wetsuits for surfers, Roustan has also been commissioned for projects with Absolut Vodka, Barcadi and - most bizarrely - Tupperware.

His work has featured all over, from Playboy to The New York Post, and he also teaches others how to use airbrushing to create human art-pieces.

According to his website, Roustan's work centres on: "Telling stories about people, places, and ideas, his work explores the multiple layers of meaning combining the human figure with different elements."

And really, really strong paint, too, by the looks of things.
