    I need some help for this weekend.

    I will be using some small latex appliances at a haunt and I have one quick question for you guys.

    When I apply the appliances to my face, what can I use to cover up the edges of those appliances against my face? So that it looks like its all together, rather than having an obvious seem where the appliance ends

    Latex... apply with latex sponge. Blow it dry (hair dryer works best)... hide with make-up. -Tyler

    Very good Tyler, but also remember to put the latex on in a series of light coats, for blending purposes.......
    On a sidenote, BRAD, you should pick up a copy of the HAUNTING MAKEUP DVD, available at www.BodyBagginG.com www.Screamlinestudios.com and of course www.RottingFleshRadio.com
    Screamline and BodyBag both did very very educational segements on appliance applications.

    if it is a big gap, latex can take awhile to fill the space. Add a layer of latex, then a small amount of cotton, then another layer of latex over it. works great!

    Hey Brad! We're looking forward to having you come play at SCREAM BREAK! We've got a couple of makeup artists that have gotten really good with latex and they can help you out with that. We're hoping for really big crowds so you can have a lot of fun! You'll have the opportunity to learn a great deal from Mari's Fright Team Management skills. She's incredibly organized and professional with the team and does an AWESOME job! See you this weekend!

    Brad, did you get the new Haunting Makeup DVD? BodyBaging is right! I've posted this elsewhere, but it really is a MUST HAVE! You're going to want it for your haunt library and it's worth 4 times the proce, at least!

    Be careful, ordinary latex contains ammonia which is a skin and eye irritant. Use Makeup latex from Ben Nye or Duo eyelash adhesive instead. Also bits of torn facial tissue stuck onto and covered with the Duo will work better than the cotton. Use the makeup sponge to blend with a dabbing/stipple effect, no rubbing or brushing.

    HAHAHA!! It might still be worth it!!!

    I am actually gonna focus on using quite a bit of makeup this year, and turn away from using only masks.

    Kelly, I cant say enough how slowly this past 2 weeks have gone by so slowly!! Waiting patiently for EUREKA SREAMS BREAK!!

    Also, I made reservations at the Tradewinds for the weekend, just to help you guys out a little.
