Inspired by 3D printing clay i wanted to know how this unique and natural material works on bare skin. As the quite thick layer of clay dried it started to crack, which created wonderful details which shows the beauty of coincidence of physics and chemistry. As the material shrinks while drying it pinches the skin which can even hurt a bit. The whole crew involved in the shooting had great fun attaching more and more of the sticky clay. We have learned a lot about the characteristics and behaviour of clay. Looking forward to the next dirty photo shoot!
