This is the best book on makeup available. In full color photos, you are taught - step by step - how to apply Whiteface, Auguste and Hobo makeup. Dozens of color photos at the back of the book, provide a photo gallery of styles and designs to choose from. I HIGHLY recommend this book to any clown who is looking for pointers on their makeup technique!

This is the best book on clowning. My copy is covered with Mehron smudges and baby powder because I still open it up as I am getting ready to get into character.
Very practilcal. Good job of addressing the needs of the beginner AND helping the veteran.
If you are going to apply clown make-up and don't want to look like a lipstick clown in a rainbow afro wig you need to get this book.

Best book on Clown make up out there. This is the one that is used for reference at the clown conferences and class I have gone too, NO OTHER! If you are a clown you need this book, review the steps on face design and application technique so you arent SCARY clown. Covers application and design of white face, auguste and hobo clowns. Has many pictures in the back of clown faces to search through. Also has many different examples of mouths, eyes and eyebrows.

I have ordered this book today. After over 30 years I still remember most of what Frank Wisniewski taught in the course I took from him. I don't clown anymore, never turned professional. He was a wonderful instructor. I look forward to seeing his work again when my book comes. I still have my costume, shoes, and remember how to powder down my makeup and even use this technique for street makeup.

My daughter works in professional theatre and lots Frank's philosophy I passed on to her as she trained as a dancer and now she is production manager and card carrying AEA Stage Manager.

So happy to find this book.

A must have book any wannabes or freshman Clowns. Tricks of the trade and words of wisdom are found in this book. For me this book is my Webster's for clown makeup. Strutter's guide explains to you why there is no such thing as a 'typical clown'
