Splash Heroes: Superhero Models Wearing High Speed Milk (NSFW-ish)

By Hanssie on January 3rd 2015

It’s been a little over a year since Jaroslav Wieczorkiewicz of Aurum Light made a splash – literally – with his sexy pinup girls wearing strategically placed splashes of milk.


Using high speed strobes, patience and lots much time in post production layering hundreds of photographs of real models with real milk splashed on them to create costumes, the 2014 Milk Pinup calendar was quite a success. What started as a personal project, the Milk Pinups lead to Fairlife Milk purchasing the series and opened up some dream opportunities for Jaroslav. Jaroslav is back again this year with his 2015 calendar, “Splash Heroes.”

While giving a seminar in California last year, London-based Jaroslav visited a friend’s home which had an entire room devoted to action figures. Inspired, Jaroslav knew immediately the the theme of this year’s calendar would be a colorful, milky tribute to superheroes.

The images were created over a period of 5 intensive days and of course, it was very messy. Imagine gallons of milky liquid and food coloring being tossed and the cleanup effort that would take. The milk was colored using pigments and food coloring and “shaped” carefully on the model.

Jaroslav is already working on his concepts for calendars up to the year 2018!

    I guess they did not show the splashes because some women were nude. Amazing studio work!
