I was thinking using my acrylic to airbrush it on for a more natural look (just because I cannot go out at this time and buy all the sfx make-up my heart desires so I make due!). I just felt that, when using my powered make-up on these once finished it looks dry (unless you add fresh blood) but I rather have it look wet and icky. Are you a mua? I took a look at your one post and you stuff looks good! I hope to go back to school for it...but I have a major loan to pay off first...so right now I just do it for fun!
Lol, I never have good luck with my airbrush but that applies to anytime I use it.
Not professionally, just a hobbyist. In an art class back in high school, we spent a month learning some fx work:life casting, sculpting/creating molds for latex appliances, applying fx makeup. We were lucky enough to have a mask making/fx studio nearby that used to offer classes; it helps that they sold all of the supplies too. Our teacher had taken a class previously and decided that a Halloween project was in order for us.
The previous year's art class spent the entire year making an independent Alien vs Predator film and worked with the studio a lot. I found out that later classes spent the whole year working on fx makeup, haunted house setups and mask making.
Have you worked any haunted houses or talked to any local fx artists? It's always a great way to find new techniques and guinea pigs for makeup.
I can't wait to see what you create next!
