Stuart Bray on Alcohol Activated make up

If you’re looking for a tutorial video that is going to help explain exactly how to use alcohol activated make up, how it works and how to get the best results when using it for a look, I highly recommend this video that I stumbled on the other day.

Stuart Bray definitely knows what he’s talking about and in this video he shows you how your AA make up can be used to make wounds and appliances look realistic. He shows you how to blend colours effectively to make a skin tone and how to use blood, make tiny cuts and bruising or infected skin.

I loved watching this and how easy he made it look!

If you want to grab your own alcohol activated make up palette we’ve got a huge variety of Mr Dashbo palettes in stock on our site right here so you can get creative and see how fun it is to try and colour your own wounds.

Trauma Tubs

Trauma Tubs are NEW and a must for Makeup Students and Make up Artists alike!

Each tub contains 6 moulds, which may be used with a range of prosthetic materials. Bondo, gelatine and silicone for reusable pieces.

Each mould is slightly less than 3 inches in diameter. So the wounds are a fare size. If you’re asked to create something in a rush, these are the perfect partner to carry in your kit!

We currently have 3 different Tubs available! Blunt Trauma, Ballistics and a Mixed Tub.

 

 

Blunt Trauma contains 6 different Cut, Slashes and Bites moulds

Ballistics gives you a range of Bullet entry and exit wounds

And the Mixed Tub has one each from all six styles so a real variation in this tub

Trauma Tubs are exclusively available from www.spacemonkeys.co.uk

Startled FX Foam Prosthetics

We are very excited to be stocking some new Foam Latex Prosthetics from Startled FX. killer clownThese are manufactured right here in the UK which is awesome but we also know the sculptor so know the quality of these pieces will be second to none.

One of the first styles we will be stocking is this incredibly scary Killer Clown.We have always wanted to stock so good quality and creepy Clown Prosthetics but we have always found it difficult to source them.
So you can imagine how happy we were when we knew this would be in the first wave of Foam Styles.

mutantAnother new style will be the versatile Mutant!

This Foam could easily be used as a zombie character or a Mutant Hillbilly character which we love. Both of these styles are in stock right now and part of the first wave of styles. Look out for wave 2 coming soon and Vampires and Zombies

 

 

More Teeth coming soon

We are well known for stocking some of the best FX Teeth in the UK from brands such as Dental Distortions, Moonstruck Effects and Tinsley Transfers and we have two new styles coming soon from Moonstruck Effects.

Kalfou FX Teeth are a great set of Creature upper and lowers and you may be thinking that these teeth look quite familiar.

That is because they look remarkably like our most popular set of FX Teeth “Pennywise” so we already know these will be a very popular style of teeth. Look out for Kalfou soon on the website.

Another new style coming soon is the upper only Vampire style Sabrathan.

This Double fang style was used for the Marvel character Blade and gives a good alternative to the traditional single fang style.

 

 

 

 

 

More Alcohol Palettes added…..

We started stocking Alcohol Activated Palettes by Mr Dashbo quite recently and the respose for these has been great. So much so that we have added a few more styles to our website.

The Lady Cadaver palette is a 5 colour death tone palette perfect for creating ghostly and macabre characters. lady cadaver paletteMr Dashbo not only creates vibrant colours but the packaging is also very striking which may not enhance the actual makeup itself but definitely looks great in your kit.

Another new 5 colour palette we now stock is The Cheshire Tatt palette which contains 5 tattoo ink tones. cheshire tatt paletteNow we are quite well known for our work with Temporary Tattoos but these palettes give you the freedom to create your own designs or even enhance something that is already on the skin.

We have used a few different brands of alcohol Activated Makeup and these really do look great and the colours are well put together and look good on the skin. Mr Dashbo are Vegan friendly and cruelty free which is a big plus and finding a UK manufactured product is another big plus for us.

We hope you find this useful and look forward to any feedback you have about these or any of our products.

Gaul FX Fangs

Pennywise, Gaul and Bad Moon are the styles being used so we could be treated to a possible werewolf character (Bad Moon) as for the other two styles, these could be used for any number of different creatures. We will keep you posted with any updates.

Tattoo Model

Recently we supplied some of our Prison and Vintage style Temporary Tattoos for a photo shoot and the results are pretty cool.

tat model1We were told that the model already had full sleeve tattoos but wanted to add Vintage hand tattoos for this specific shoot. The tattoos used were 2 different Vintage Swallows and a black and grey clown version of the Tragedy and Comedy tattoos.

All of these tattoos not only fitted very well with his existing tattoos but also suited being worn on the hands.

We love the positioning and think it’s pretty hard to tell the difference between our fake tattoos and the models real ones.
