Have you watched "Face Off" or "Game Face" and you know Special FX could be your passion? Special Effects Makeup is where we see the most imaginative creative work at Cosmix. Walk into our Special Effects Makeup classroom and you will be in awe at the creature design going on. From super heros to aliens- It's amazing!
Special FX Makeup equips students with makeup & lab techniques to create special effects for film, television, and theater. On Day 1, students apply a prosthetic. This introduces students to foam latex prosthetics and emphasizes the importance of proper textures, edges, and the look of a finished application. This helps them as they begin designing and sculpting.
Students learn about silicone, gelatin, in addition to foam latex materials. They design, create, and apply different types of prosthetic and dental appliances. The entire process includes conceptualization, life casting, sculpting, molding and application techniques.
Blood delivery methods are also included. Their final project for Special FX Makeup is captured in a photo shoot.
