Earls students were treated to a special effects make up tutorial with professional artist Laura, from Phantom Father Studios this week. Laura explained how she trained to become a special effects make up artist, before sharing a gallery of her creations. Her repertoire includes work for film, TV, theatre and creating collectibles for private clients as far away as China and Australia. Laura then showed students how to use the nose wax ( base for building up injuries), make up and fake blood to create realistic wounds. The students then had a go at creating their own examples, ranging from burns and scratches to cuts and zombie bites! Students really enjoyed getting the chance to do something creative, unusual and a little bit gory!
