260MC: Beneath Locations and Materials

We have looked at galleries and studios in Coventry and within the proximity, for us to hire out. The main one we’ve been looking at is the Herbert Art Museum which would cost us between £85-£1300, we’re hoping its at the cheaper end of the spectrum. I emailed them today, asking about whether or not it would be possible to book it out and asked them how much it would be, I’m still waiting for a response.

We would exhibit our work in the Studio that they have as that’s what is used for exhibitions.

In terms of materials and paint, we discussed and thought it would be really unique and amazing if we were to use glow in the dark body paint. An artist, John Poppleton, who I have contacted on Facebook, is a prime example of glow in the dark body paint as he used it for his landscape body art series.

He recommended to use Neon Glow body paint from Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00WL2US3Y?keywords=neon+glow&qid=1454041300&ref_=sr_1_3&sr=8-3) however because this was the American Amazon website we decided to look for other options. We then came across UV Glow Neon Face and Body Paint (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00AMIF0IC?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_3&smid=A35TLIPJBR40KJ). This was more reliable as it would come sooner.
