Special FX
and Make-up
Most SPFX make-ups are done with prosthetic appliances (foam latex or Gelatin); custom made to fit an actor.

In a nutshell, these are the steps to achieve a SPFX make-up:
1) We cast or mold the actor to produce a plaster duplicate.

2) New features are then sculpted in plasticine (oil-based clay) over the plaster duplicate of the actor.

3)
The sculpted features are then molded.

4)
Once cleaned, the molds are filled with foam latex or Gelatin.
5) After baking for a few hours, the pieces are cleaned, dried and sometimes pre-coloured.

6)
The final step consists in gluing the appliances on the actor using a medical adhesive and completing the coloration.
If we were to describe a heart transplant as we did with SPFX make-up, the list would read as such:

1)
Cut.
2) Remove the bad heart.
3) Replace with new heart.
4) Close.
Obviously, the steps above only serve as a description of a much more complex and time-consuming process. But it gives you an idea.
