My SPFX Final Project!

As promised, I'm excited to share with you all my Special Effects 201 class final project! This was my last day in the class and it was quite hectic as you can imagine and we were given two hours to complete our characters before they were photographed. As I look back at these photos there are so many things I wished I would've done, but I'm still very proud of my creation! So I'm pleased to present my creature sea siren :)

MUA: Julie Curl Photographer: Derek Athen Model: Brittany Durment

I was very pleased with design and concept, oh and of course with the photos as well! My model and fellow make-up artist, Brittany Durment (follow her on IG: MuahbyBrittArtistry) was amazing!

 Here are some of the behind the scenes work that went into creating my creature sea siren!

Sculpting the scales with a fellow MUA!

 To create the scales the first thing that had to be done was sculpt them out on clay, then stipple some mold rubber latex on top; depending on the thickness desired will determine how many layers of latex needs to be applied. I used 4-5 layers for mine.
The end result!
Test make-up!

This piece had to be the most time consuming! I took a generic foam latex brow piece and individually added crystals to it. I think out of everything this piece is the one I'm most proud of!
It was definitely worth all the long hours getting these pieces ready to go and finally see my character come to life. If you guys are interested in seeing more of my work you can follow me on instagram @waveybrushartistry and I'll leave a link to my website right after I'm done working out the kinks!
Until next time, sending all my love to my fellow make-up connoisseurs!
