Kryolan Body Paint: Swatches for orcs, goblins, and more!

Today Mario and I took a nice trip down to San Francisco to swatch a whole lot of colors for some friends. We had some greens, some blues, some purples and grays… and the people at Kryolan were very nice and didn’t even make faces at us taking forever and taking pictures and not even buying anything. (Not that we didn’t want to buy anything; there wasn’t anything that we actually needed at the time, and honestly we’re budgeting for a costume and a wedding here, so as much as I wanted to spend every dollar I had on all the gorgeous colors of lipstick and body paint, it wasn’t happening.)

We’ll start with the greens. We swatched all the greens they had on display to sample, and they were even awesome enough to bring out a tray of more green aquacolors for us to take a look at. As always, you can click on the photos to make them larger. All of these paints are in the Kryolan aquacolor line.
