Marina also painted depictions of the characters from The Nightmare Before Christmas onto her body

Ms Lane said: “My most popular videos have been Heath Ledger’s Joker in a nurse’s uniform and Ronald McDonald. Emily from The Corpse Bride is always popular too.

Her works are created largely with liquid latex and paint, apart from a few small strips of fabric.

The mother-of-two started teaching herself the skill in 2020 and says the hardest step is “painting my right arm with my left hand”.

“It’s quite a struggle when a look requires a lot of detail on the arms,” ​​she said.

Ms Lane said the ‘long’ process begins when she covers herself in fabric patches and ‘several layers of liquid latex’. She then paints over it.

She told the Hull Daily Mail: ‘I got into body painting properly in September 2020, although I had been doing creative makeovers for years before.

“Around 2014, I started posting glamorous bridal and makeup looks on social media, but found it wasn’t captivating enough. I soon started doing more creative looks, using face paints and wigs and turning into characters from the shoulders up.
