Can anyone recommend a good book to learn about creating prosthetics, products to work with, applying airbrush paints, etc? I've been doing so much research my head is starting to spin a bit. I really enjoy all the YouTubes Allen H has posted and have watched them all multiple times. But there is so much information all over the 'net would love to have a book to open and read. Thank you in advance for your help!

A great basic one for mold making and it has some sculpting tips

Hi Allen -- we bought the Special Effects book a few months back and have used a few of the techniques with success. I ordered the Monster Makers book (along with a few others) yesterday -- looking forward to diving into it! Thanks again! Brenda & Barry
