Format: Paperback
Dick Smith's book is an excellent primer for amateur, aspiring f/x make-up artists and a handy guide for those who are experienced. His techniques are simple, inexpensive and timeless yet with the knowledge Mr. Smith provides you can achieve excellent results. This book really needs to come back into print! From simple highlighting and shading to making your own stage blood, this is a must-have guide to keep with your f/x makeup case. I would recommend anyone interested in learning f/x makeup to try to locate a copy of this excellent manual.

The VHS tape and book I bought 18 years ago and my life changed forever. I moved away from makeup fx soon after, but if it weren't for this and Tom Savini's excellent Grande Illusions book and VHS tape, I wouldn't be a filmmaker today. If you want to learn how to do affordable makeup FX, this is the book for you!

Just got this book and have been pouring over it; the make up techniques are simple, yet very effective, anyone from a mother who wants her child to be the head Halloween ghoul, to Jr. film makers will find something inside.

Not only are the instructions easy to follow, but, they encourage you to come up with your own twists to the illustrations inside. You will slap yourself numerous times thinking "So easy! Why did I not think of that!" I will echo others in saying this book ought to be back in print again, and on every monster maker's book shelf.

My very beaten copy is dated 1965, from Famous Monsters of Filmland. Every other book I've read or owned on the subject has been a supplement. This really needs to be reprinted, especially with the number of people doing costume and character work at Cons and films.
