BUT- it does have its faults, and boy are they obvious. (one of them is the fact that the products he uses have branded names instead of the traditional ones most of use might be used to, like Mastix and ProStick are actually Spirit Gum and Pros-Aide, respectively, but that can be forgiven because she gives a quick translation at the end of her book with EVERYTHING)
The author decides to end his book with a chapter on Character Makeup, and most of them look LAUGHABLE (and really impractical to create and use by his instructions). the rest leave you scratching your head wondering if he ever seen the movies of the characters hes "recreating." some of the worst ones include classic favorites like Frankenstein, Pinhead, Freddy Krueger, The Wolfman, and others just look horrendous altogether, like the Minotaur (which looks more like Hefer from Rocko's Modern Life).Read more ›
Overall, this is a great resource for the beginner who wants to being learning the fundamentals of special effects makeup. It will certainly get your gears spinning and allow you to start thinking of how you can apply the different techniques it provides.
Wast of money..
