Prosthetic horns made from paper, wire, wool, liquid latex, black paint, glitter and gelatin, red contact, diamond falsies, Screenface bruise for contouring, metallic glitter rocks for brows
This did not go at all to plan, it has transpired I can’t mold for shit and it’s starting to grate. I spent a while making sure my edging was neat for thin flash and the sculpt was good but the mold :( I also forgot the mold release and I was too impatient with the gelatin and it hadn’t harden enough. Poor Kate had half a bottle of spirit gum to stick these bad boys. I love the photos but I want to be better at molding. I have asked for Mr Gorton’s 4 DVD set for Christmas, it’s time to get serious.
Nearly a year of MUC, that makes my heart happy :D
Been watching a lot of Faceoff and I think I have a better understanding of the casting the mold and how to sculpt for casting in gelatin to get the thin edges, I think - We will see how it goes. I’m gonna fence it then paint the plaster to see if I can get a better mold.
Dressing up for Halloween AGAIN Creepy Cat because my contacts arrived in time, whiteouts, redouts, whitey greens, elf eyes and cats eyes.
Got to do make up for Evie and Jamie, best way to spend Halloween afternoon. Steve is gonna have red hands indefinitely, yeah of course its washing out :) FINE HOLIDAY FUN
Evie’s face when she saw herself in the mirror was a picture, I love that look - the power of transformation.
The students are apply the make up to performers for the Christmas production of Animal Farm. This was a 20 min fast tester for an abstract representation of an animal. The gangs excited, I’m screening them T-shirts :D
I do like the naivety, that was the idea but I could have made a bit of a better job of the line work, if we hadn’t opened the Amaretto.
I know I say this ALOT but every day should be dress up, Class trip for Film and Gaming, 80 students at COMIC CON and me herding them on and off of tubes and trains with a holler, dressed as Death = PRICELESS
Plus I bought a massive plastic pink gloomy, whose guarding the fire place with his bloody claws. Happy k.
My variation on Tate’s skull from the school massacre scene in American Horror Story. The count down for Coven begins.
Krylon Blue pan cake, Magi-colour Liquid Black and white.
Look at my baldie head :D wicked effort, Miss Maraj. She wanted a bald cap and I haven’t tried the latex on the red head yet but makeshift swim cap did the job. I am now in reality disappointed that my forehead is so tiny *sob*
This was wicked good fun.
I got a lot of feathers and had MUC withdrawal so I had a play, a feather take on Pris from Blade Runner.
Angry Tiger face :) Practicing contouring for Animal Farm assignment for class - Mostly kohl pencils and eye shadows, whiskers from paint brush bristles and spirit gum. Happy with the end result but it took a while.
Inspired by Virgin Suicides and the fact I had a lot of vases of dead flowers :) which have their own unique charm.
Painted with magi-colour Ben Nye black liquid paint, which flaked quite quickly so when I try again I will use either the skin illustrator palette or the Temptu Pro AA paints.
Aiming for one MUC and one SFX a week and playing catch up a little bit. I need to clean out the clay from the creature suit molds properly and work up the nerve to cast in foam latex.
Kate’s sunning it up on Holiday at the minute and I was getting withdrawals from MUC so I did the nasty stuff we can’t show Ila, the grim stuff I love to do - Requiem for a Dream hole and sliced arm :) Finally found a use for the wicked vintage syringe, I found in the cellar, when we bought the house. Even figured out how to use the timer on my SLR WIN :D
REQUIEM FOR A DREAM HOLE - kohl lip/eye liners in red, turquoise, Brown, Royal blue, lilac, plum and black + screenface Rogue pot, Ben Nye magi-colour black liquid paint, Make up Forever sweat effect gel, gel blood, purple, blue and brown eye shadow, scar wax and liquid latex.
SLICED ARM - Mostly kohl lip/eye liners in red, turquoise, Brown, Royal blue, lilac, baby pink, plum, white and black + black liquid eyeliner, gel blood, scar wax, liquid latex, Screenface foundation stack and medical tape (Aaron’s suggestion for air brushing but works a treat for masking too)
I kinda got more excited about the idea of this one and lost interest doing the make up (Got distracted by The Hills reruns, damn you MTV) I like the Alice image, I think I messed up the placement of the glass - another learning curve and now I got blue fingers :)
Need to remember to pick stuff that’s easier to photography, missing Maraj, not long now.
I have started sculpting the Creature face, in essence he/she is a black bear. I’m happy with the first pass for the sculpt, want to leave for a few days before I cast, in case I want to make any changes.
I used the same technique I discovered when making the DIY Munny and I like the texture. He/she is to be painted completely black anyways after being cast in foam latex.
The gloves for the Bear claws and feet are still a work in progress and I wanted to shape the finger claws more and perhaps re texture the pads to look more cracked and worn. These will fit onto/inside of the fur suit to form the pads and claws.
