The second session of my Special Effects Make Up short course has gone well. It was a couple of hours of solid sculpting, which was remarkably intense but fun, and I still only ended up with something really small. We sculpted with chavant clay, and the idea is to create a flat piece that can eventually be glued to someone’s face or body.
I decided to go for the pustulous, disease-ridden idea, and the aim was to sculpt some lumpy pustules and broken oozing skin. Not sure I really succeeded, I think maybe I should have gone more extreme. Anyway, I’m not sure how successful it’ll be I think until I cast it.
