Join Brian & Nick Wolfe of Evil Twin FX for this full day hands on, make-n-take workshop. Cameras and notepads are a must as students will learn to make custom character masks from foam latex appliances. The class will choose a character, put the mask together and then paint and finish it. Hand painting, airbrushing and proper appliance application will all be covered in this six hour monster fest.
Creatures, zombies and demons oh my! The best part is taking your class project home with you. Plus, the skills you learn can be used to make all the sock masks you want when you get home. This workshop is suitable for all skill levels from beginner to advance. So come as you are and let your creativity and skills develop through the instruction from two of the finest special FX teachers in the industry.
