I thought i had finally decided against going to do make-up at York, but just before concept film night on Wednesday, i was talking to some students about them making a Grindhouse zombie film.
They just mentioned that they would need a severed head, and i just so happen to have one of those. So we started talking, and he would need a lot more things made, eg. various body parts and lots of blood.
The next day when i checked my emails, i had a newsletter from a makeup course i subscribed to a while back, and they had posted a few videos about the course.
I started to get excited about making the body parts, and i really got into researching suppliers for materials such as gelatin (used for fake wounds), i even started a list of websites for various products:
special-effects-supplies.htm - Who do great on-skin burn kits, special sculpting clay that won't dry out, all sorts of adhesives and removers.
- http://store.sketchwork.tv/store.php/products/sculpt-gel-kit - I found a really nice product called sculpt gel, which can go directly onto your skin for 3d cuts (or zombie bites?) and have make-up put over the top.
- http://www.kryolan.com/en/index.php?mnu=3&cid=113 - And then there's Kryolan, and i just want everything in that catalogue! All the lovely carrying cases and bags, and everything that goes in them. I already own the tear-stick, so i only have another thousand products to go, but they're all so colourful and fun!
But the question is, do i prefer to be applying the make-up, or prefer having it done for me? Would i be more satisfied just watching a professional make-up artist do my make-up?
