Wolfe produces such rich color, coverage, and quality. It blends easily, drys quickly and you can even touch it without having it rub off. It also washes off easily without any special removers.

"At first I was nervous, I had never done it before. I felt so comfortable after I was painted because I felt like I was wearing clothes! I even sauggested to go to the bar like that!"
Crystal Troop - Nurse
"I love getting body painted! Alannah has painted me three times already and I am doing my fourth one this week. I am so excited!"
Mimoza Hutton- Personal Fitness Trainer
"I was reluctant at first because I did not consider myself to be a 'perfect model'. I trusted Alannah's work and was open to the idea, but was nervous about how she was going to shoot me. She ended up painted me as I comfortably laid on the floor. She created a Nightclub flyer for a Promoter in Jamaica on me. I got to wear a wig and I had so much fun! I ended up doing it again because I loved it so much and Alannah painted my back this time and even put me in her calendar. I felt so beautiful."
