Buhle set social media alight when she shared an image of her ‘body art’ on Tuesday.
Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, Buhle admitted that this was the first time she had her body painted.
“I’ve gotten so many questions about this body painting experience. It was my first time but definitely not my last”.
Buhle said that she really enjoyed the process and that she would do it again.
“I’ll body paint model any day, with a really professional artist and crew of course,” she said.
“The brush strokes were actually very relaxing and ticklish in some areas. I was on my feet for three hours and by the time it was over I didn’t feel like I was naked at all. When the camera started rolling and dance hall music came on I danced and bounced the entire shoot,” she added.
