Friday Face OFF 11/25/22

 Hi Everyone!

I hope all my US friends had a nice TG and everyone else a just a nice day overall. Ours was small and quiet. Talked to my family on the phone and watched football with Mr. M.  As you know today is Friday Face OFF. The place where anyone can show any kind of face in any medium. My face today, you got it, is another skull creature. hee hee hee. I made boils ready to blow. OK don't get sick. It's all in fun and art. And I did have so much fun making this one. Oh what am I writing, I have fun making all of them. LOL

 This starts with a light layer of crinkle skin and painted with a base coat of acrylics.

 Cover the eyes, mouth and start makeing the boils.

 I love this skin so much!

 Shaping the yese and lips.

Starting to paint the boils. I did a lot of research on what inflamed boils really look like. I made these so when touched they feel soft like a real boil. It is so cool.....

 I wish I could get a better shot of the detail in the boils.

This one is oozing. 

This weekend I will be making a one piece silicon mold from one of my plastic skulls so I can cast more skulls. Ya know since I can't buy any in the stores. Amazon is too expensive and the wrong sizes. I prefer to make my own anyway.

My daughter and her husband. Tonight.

This weeks featured artist is.
Make sure to translate to read his amazing writings. As well as his incredible art.

That's it for me tonight.
Now it's your turn to show your face.

I can only imagine if you had been born in a culture where they shrink heads!

...Nicole, this week's masterpiece is a bit too realistic for my tastes. Let's move on to Christmas, shall we?

I can tell you are having fun because this week's skull is just amazing. I wonder how you make the teeth. And it is nice to see your daughter too. I can see you in her face-as you've shown some younger you photos. Glad you had a nice TG and I hope you have a great weekend too. hugs-Erika

Things like this make me think that you totally missed a good career in stage/theatrical makeup.
