hmmmmmmmmmmmmm...did you stipple and set the green?

What did you use for nose/chin?
SI...im making due on what i got...green is craft paint..as i dont have my junk yet......the nose and chin are a build up of cotton/latex.
Right now im working with next to nothing but getting my feet wet while having fun. Got mad when kid bailed as i mad him a nose and chin..then had to start over and just said...lets get it done. So again..another rush job...but i liked it.

Craft paint? Well nobody can say that you aren't excited about doing what you need to do to get the look you want! :D Just be careful about the materials you are using in your enthusiasm. Just think, if you can do this with the unusual materials you have, you will be a natural with the proper tools!

I've begun experimenting with latex and cotton myself, however I find it too rough to blend in well with facial structures. I have used it with some success for open wounds though. I know it is popular for body sculpting too, however I have seen very few sculpts from this that I was impressed with. :(

I'll try that Scare. It may work better. :)

BTW, if you make cotton in a ring shape on a pan, then coat it with latex, you can place it in the oven for a faster drying time. I found this out when I was running late for a shoot. Make sure the oven is around 150 deg. and it should only take about 5 min or so to dry. My oven starts at 170, so I took a perm marker and made a line where I though 150 may be. heh

The ring can then be used for pusstules, gunshots, wounds, etc. Just stipple latex around the edges onto the skin to minimize edges showing. The latex can also be an adhesive.

LOL I love this discussion! Two seperate views converging to share methods and techniques. How have you colored the latex, Scare?

Be careful with the craft paints. Unlike makeup pigments, which are approved by the FDA for use on the skin, some pigments in craft paint can be toxic when painted onto the skin.

Make up can be very challenging! Just when you master one technique, you find you may have to work harder at a new one. I have plenty to work on myself, but I think that hat makes it so fun. The variety!
