Learn airbrush techniques applicable to prosthetic pieces and creature effects, and learn to apply bald caps using a variety of application techniques. Finally, bring all of your skills together to design and create a fully developed character for your end-of-course photo shoot. Professionalism, etiquette, personal appearance, communication, and sanitation standards are integral parts of this course.


Course Essentials:
