In eight weekly Thursday night classes, students are taught professional sculpting and finishing techniques to create a custom designed silicone front face character prosthetic. This class focuses on the process of concept design, professional prosthetic sculpture, molding, prosthetic design complication troubleshooting, mixing, tinting and casting in professional grade silicone. Students will also learn professional techniques to use when pre-painting prosthetics as well as the best techniques to use when applying and removing the prosthetics from a live model.
This class is largely based on hands-on learning and also includes live demonstrations and lectures by the instructor. All products, materials, and tools needed for this class are included in the tuition fee. It is encouraged to bring a notepad to take notes and a camera to document your progress as you learn. Students will be responsible for providing themselves a model and all body safe industry standard make-up, adhesives, airbrushing or body-painting supplies, wardrobe, wigs, nails, and other accessories to apply their final make-up design on the final day of the course. Airbrushes and compressors will be provided for student use during the final make-up application.
After final make-up application completion, students will have the opportunity for their model to be photographed in a professional photo shoot provided by the studio. Upon finishing the class, students will receive a certificate of completion signed by the instructor.
