I wanted to create a creepy bloody body painting, but eventually this came out, and so I made a little zombie characterization! Here are some photos, so you can understand how the process works and what the results look like.
Check It Out, If Your Dare!
Now I would like to encourage you to try this yourselves. I started this project due to a college subject. I had to study the properties of one material, and I chose latex, because I wanted to learn some characterization techniques. I've never imagined that this tiny idea would eventually lead to a job for me.
Here Are Some Process Photos
This project was very funny and productive, working on different topics like crafts, hairdressing, make up, characterization... to finally create a new zombie.
I used liquid latex for the bases, then some make up and some dark eye shadows, which are applied when the latex has dried, combined with paint. My tools were tweezers and old brushes, always with toilet paper near me to create interesting textures or cleaning the mess I made!
Liquid latex lasts a long time, so you can have a long Halloween night out without having to worry! A little piece of advice: if you have any skin irregularity, please be sure to try it on a small area of your body first to see how your skin reacts to the application of latex.
Another tip for when you remove the make up: if you carefully start scratching the latex it will come off. If it, however, itches you, you also can apply some vaseline a few minutes before you start removing the latex. That'll help.
