Body-marbling - is a painting process similar to the paper-marbling, in which paint is floated on water and transferred to a person's skin. Unlike the traditional oil-based technique for paper, neon or ultraviolet reactive colors are typically used, and the paint is water-based and non-toxic.
The skin is bathed in a salt water solution which allows the paint to adhere. The desired pattern is created by adding drops of paint to the water surface, and transferred to the skin by dipping. The skin is then dipped in a rinse bath and allowed to dry. The painting is temporary and can be removed by washing.
