Basic 3-D Makeup Course


Dick’s Basic 3-D Makeup Course teaches you the primary, essential form of makeup that a special effects makeup artist must know: how to transform an actor’s face three-dimensionally with prosthetics. Old person, alien, or corpse, the only limit is your imagination!


Here are the 5 basic technical and artistic steps you’ll learn:

  1. Making a life mask of the actor/model.
  2. Designing and sculpting your creation on that life mask.
  3. Making molds of the clay features you’ve created.
  4. Casting flexible prosthetic pieces from these molds.
  5. Gluing your prosthetic pieces onto your live model and coloring them to bring your creation to life.

Your finished project will be assessed by one of our ACADEMY AWARD-WINNING FACULTY. This advisor will discuss your strengths and areas that need improvement with specific suggestions to achieve that improvement.

A traditional makeup school might charge you thousands of dollars for such one-on-one individual guidance from an Academy Award winner but our students get this great deal on tuition because Dick personally trained many of the profession’s top artists. Now these loyal friends are continuing his teaching tradition.
