Description - Prosthetic Make-Up Artistry for Film and Television by Clare Ramsey

The popularity of fantasy blockbusters and sci-fi television has made the call for prosthetic artists a staple requirement in the majority of film crews. Prosthetic make-up has the ability to transform actors into unique, one-of-a-kind characters who take us into the realms of impossibility, limited only by the artist's imagination. Yet it can also be used in more subtle ways to alter physical appearance and create ageing, weight gain or illness, useful for a variety of genres and entertainment mediums. This instructional book offers a fascinating insight into the world of prosthetic make-up artistry. It illustrates two- and three-dimensional make-up techniques and covers topics such as: Life casting Sculpting techniques Gelatine prosthetics Airbrushing Hair punching Hand-laid hair techniques Novelty teeth design and manufacture AUTHOR: Clare Ramsey has worked in the film and television industry for many years. She works in all areas of make-up but has a particular passion for prosthetic make-up artistry. Her varied career has taken her all over the world to work on shows such as Harry Potter, James Bond, Game of Thrones, The Hobbit and Ash vs Evil Dead, to name but a few. Clare's hopes for this book to equip young artists with the tools to create their own characters and explore new and imaginative prosthetic creations. 424 colour photographs, 14 line artworks
