In this tutorial Gil Romero, professional special effects makeup artist and Make-Up Designory faculty member, demonstrates how to apply a foam latex prosthetic appliance.
This FX makeup tutorial will be in two parts. In this video, Part 1, Gil shows us how to fit and securely adhere the appliance to the model’s face using a durable, water-based contact adhesive.
In Part 2 of this special effects makeup tutorial, Gil Romero uses PAX paint to color the foam latex appliance that he applied in part one of the tutorial. Gil uses a variety of techniques to build layers of color and create realism.
Once the effect is complete and the model has been fitted with wig and wardrobe, he is ready for the movie screen.
