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 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, and foam latex materials. They design, create, and apply different types of prosthetic and dental appliances. The entire process includes conceptualization, life casting, sculpting, molding, airbrushing techniques, and application techniques.
Blood delivery methods are also included. Their final project for Special FX Makeup is captured in a photo shoot.
