Default Help Painting A Body With No Ext Film & Need To Put Design On Outside

I need someones help. I had a customer bring me a body and it has no film on the outside of it. I am unable to use a paint mask on the inside, due to copy write issues I cannot design one. I need to know if there is something I can use to draw on it and how to get it off without harming the body. I am going to have to use fast mask and cut it out. I am not a fan of doing bodies this way, so. Any help would be greatly appreciate. Thanks, J

You can still use a sharpie on the outside without film on there. use rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball to erase it. Test this on the waste part though, i have seen some no name bodies where the lexan was a bit porous and this made erasing difficult.

If you are concerned about overspray then after you get the design cut out and are about to paint. Get some saran wrap (cling wrap) from the kitchen and a hairdryer. put the saran wrap on the body and use the hair dryer to give it some stick.

Good luck!
