San Diego – Master FX Makeup – Creature and Character Creation

June 23, 2018 - June 24, 2018

| $399.00

The Creature and Character Creation workshop is designed to show students the process of building a creature or character makeup from separate individual prosthetic pieces into one cohesive finished product. Techniques used in the class will include the application of a vinyl bald cap, and foam latex prosthetics. Students will learn how to blend edges of prosthetic pieces for a flawless, professional makeup look. Airbrush, and hand painting techniques will be taught, along with the preparation and application of hand-laid facial hair. Costume, wigs, and accessories will be utilized to complete the creature and character design creations.

This workshop will include techniques from the Prosthetic Application workshop. This includes the application and coloration of makeup prosthetics. Prosthetics are flesh-like pieces usually made from latex, gelatin, or silicone. They are used to augment the features of an actor/performer for film, TV, commercial and stage makeup. Prosthetics are commonly used in horror effects, and for monster, alien, and fantasy characters. They are also used for disguise, historical figures, cosplay, science fiction and more!

This makeup workshop will include new painting techniques to achieve life-like color results. Learn the latest application techniques to achieve the perfect execution of a Prosthetic application. This course includes fitting of latex prosthetic pieces to achieve a variety of different effects. Learn how to make an ‘On The Spot’ prosthetic piece. You’ll leave this class with the skills and techniques you’ll need to create a full, professional creature or character makeup…and it’s a hands-on workshop so you will create your very own makeup design in class!

Any beauty makeup artist who is interested in learning new makeup skills, or FX artist that is looking to refine and advance their techniques should attend this workshop. This course will teach you the skills and techniques to bring you to the next level in your career as a makeup artist. Space is limited, so don’t miss out on this exciting workshop with Drew Talbot, finalist from SyFy’s FACE OFF Season 7!
