Stuart is adamant that artists working in this field really need to master the art of running prosthetics well, if you want to get somewhere in this industry you need to know how to do this to a professional standard. He has provided some excellent examples below to illustrate what he is going to achieve on this course.
“Prosthetic pieces that have been applied badly (like the image below) occurs when the base colour is too pale, the texture is not heavy enough and the edges are clearly visible. It takes some serious skill to correctly apply prosthetics so they look as realistic as possible”
“Edges should be made ultra-thin, so the cap plastic is almost like a spiders web, strong enough to withstand handling yet thin enough to be blended seamlessly into skin. I will take you through the in's and out's of Prosthetics”
“In this course we will address many materials such as silicones, gelatins, foam latex and pro-bondo transfers. A well run appliance will make a paint job easy and effective for minimum effort in application and maximum realism for the effect you are trying to create – From a bullet wound to a witch’s nose”
This course is essential for any artist wanting to really master prosthetics and how to run and apply them successfully. Don’t miss this opportunity to boost your skill set, and career! Book online now
