Male: Matt wants that torso that has a form already and basically what we are going to have is that the pipe will go through that hole. It gives you like a pipe going through someone’s torso. And what he wants that, when he was being pulled out he once like meat to come out you know it is all most like you know like having a pieces of like organs coming out. And right now I kind of see if there is a way that I can actually like the press like some meat somewhere so that when it hit something like rips out.
Male: So, this is your own record job?
Male: I have special effects.
Basically what we are going to do is we are going to take a tissue and we are going to mix together, we will put latex and we are going to be putting this stuff on like people’s faces so that they will be having on them. That is exactly pretty some things but it works. Okay so now it is pretty much you should know, line tissue this huge piece actually that one is fix. Latex dries in five to six maybe 10 minutes. You have some working time of it not a lot but still it give you time to—let us say we want to put like latex white right here. Just spread it around like so and in order to avoid the like plumping a good idea to do would be to smooth out edges on the prosthetic.
Okay I should tell you guys that, when this prosthetics are dry and everything—they do not enter into your skin basically the natural oil will buffer your skin from the latex so that when you need to take it off it just go right off. You do not have to use any sort of chemicals.
Obviously, we are going to use this blow drier to dry out the latex. Make sure that again not like this. I put it on the face like I guess it is going to be really hot and they got burned.
The next step in the process is to powder down the prosthetic with suspenders just add fragrance in it. The whole region for powdering down the prosthetics is because latex when it is powdered down it is very sticky and you do not want it to stick to anything else, you just want to like just kind of sit there. Were just kind of like putting the powder on with the prosthetic.
The next step of the process is the actual make up. At first we have to blend of this prosthetic. The one that is probably going to match the best to great skin tone is probably this color right here. So what we do is that we take this sponge and we dab and make up on it and what we do is the side is to just blend in the latex with the skin.
All right that should be enough for now for blending sometimes. As you can see what this just kind like putting dirty job—basically the surface areas are colored to—so this going to close the skin tone, not exactly but it is still pretty close and it generally matter in terms of like having what it want me to go over it.
Okay the next step in this process is to put on the make up on our subject. And what we do is we dab a little bit of make up onto the sponge and you just kind of lightly cover them. Basically, we may consider that the white is clearly there but the skin tone still looks here through. Now with the powder being done here, we can apply the last step in making the zombie which is now applying eye shadows to the eyelids.
What we do is just take like, I guess purple eye shadow or something it is kind of smooth around there and you probably apply it to the eyelids. That is a little light but it should give a sort of I guess an impression that the blood is sort of pulling around the eye areas of it. I just made a sort of water and like pretty effective.
The other thing is you can eat it. Yes, in fact interesting story our unit production manager he was drinking coffee for seven days and we do not have any sugars so she ask me to put the blame there. And you can just put a little blush across or something.
That case that could do the trick for right now and so we have our first zombie right now.
