FX Makeup Level Three VIRTAL with Gaylynne Fell

November 29 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm MST

| $50

In this workshop students will explore the exciting application of foam prosthetics, bald caps and crepe hair. Foam prosthetics are light and more realistic then latex. They take more skill to make and use, but we are sure you will love the end result. If you have ever tried to apply a bald cap you know they are not always easy to smooth out and achieve clean edges. In this workshop the instructor will share the industry process of how to apply and finish bald caps for long wear and a realistic look. Crepe hair is one of the industries’ best kept secrets! It is inexpensive and is used for almost all body hair applications. Though it can be intimating to use for the first time, it is worth diving into for its fantastic results!
