The creative use of colour is a wonderful way of lifting your spirits and using a splash of it on your body is about as close to your soul as you can get.
Children’s face paints can also be used as body paint. It’s a relatively inexpensive product, easy to get hold of and can be lots of fun to use.
Painting your body with whatever objects take your fancy can be a particularly uplifting thing to do when you feel like your life has been painted in the same dull and uninspiring shades for years.
Put some flowers on your feet. Paint hearts all over your chest. Write phrases of inspiration on your legs and arms and make every word a different colour.
The art is for you, nobody else needs to know it’s there. You don’t have to be an artist to make yourself smile with appreciation at the work and the curvy canvas will undoubtedly give you a reason to giggle if nothing else.
