Skin Wars Fresh Paint mentors

Skin Wars season 2 just ended, but we get eased off the show with a special: Skin Wars Fresh Paint. We’ve got 3 mentors: Gear, Dutch and Natalie. We’ve also got 6 artists from different disciplines.

Skin Wars Season 2 finale recap

Ru Skin Wars season 2 finale

The Skin Wars Season 2 finale does the usual finale stuff – we get a recap of each contestant’s journey on Skin Wars and each contestant gets a message from a loved one from home. The moments are weird with the judges watching them.

Some models are ticklish, which adds another layer of difficulty.  These paints should be inspired … Continue reading

GSN’s STEAMPUNK’D: Meet the Makers of the new steampunk design competition series

Steampunk'd Karianne

GSN’s new competition series STEAMPUNK’D is kind of like Project Runway set inside a Jules Verne novel.

Wells’ 1898 vision of what the future would look like. STEAMPUNK’D looks to discover the most talented steampunk designer in America over eight episodes of the series, which debuts on Wednesday, Aug 19, at 10pm ET/PT. It moves to its regular 9pm ET/PT time period on Aug. 26. The … Continue reading
