I used Dream Tan and something else (forgot the name of it :jerkoff1:) as a base color.
for some reason the NPC has banned dream tan for all those who don't know. it's like the first thing in bold on one of my forms so they really don't want it, i think it says you'll be DQ'd if you do use it :dunnodude:
You should apply protan with a small sponge roller. You can get these at paint departments. They come with a tray perfect for containing the fluid.
I honestly can't imagine the mess that hand-application would leave I'd never do that.
3 coats I would say is sufficient for a dude with laborer genes such as yourself. Get two bottles to be sure not to run dry.
thanks. that paint store applicator sounds like a great idea. that's the consensus i'm getting that about 3 coats should be fine. i have a question though, about how many coats does one bottle of say jan tana yield?
btw what does that mean? i'm 1/2 greek, 1/4 french and 1/4 mexican, i take it your referring to the color i get from the little bit of mexican in me? calling them "laborer genes" is kinda a little bit jabby there bro. i take no offense to that though, mainly because i have no pride what so ever in the little bit of me that is mexican, i just like the color it gives me.
It's your call, but I'd strongly recommend having someone wear a latex glove, spray the area a few times and rub it in. Just stand in a bathtub when you do it and it's not messy at all. It's necessary for getting an even tan, especially in areas where you have muscle separation, or indentation (the arm pits are a good example of this, once you cut water they will cave in).
hey thank you IS and Tunen you guys have been very helpful. i think i might give both methods a try and see which works best for me.
oh and tunen i wasn't like mad or anything, at first i was confused as to what that meant. it's hard to tell what someone's tone is on here sometimes that's why i misunderstood your statement.
^ alright, still color is usually the last thing you have set before a show, i mean backstage people are still taking care of it, it doesn't get anymore last minute than that. the question was more about the application process of tanning products because i had been unexperienced in that regard. if you would like to see the color i had for the show, go see the couple pics i have in my precontest thread.
