Classic Zombie Makeup by ChaoticInsanity13 Classic Zombie Makeup by ChaoticInsanity13
This is the first attempt at a zombie makeup that I've ever done. All that was used was liquid latex, toilet paper, and acrylic paint. I'm proud of myself, considering!

Before anyone asks, yes, my eyes are very poorly photoshopped. :dummy:

That's pretty great. Liquid latex?
ChaoticInsanity13 Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep, I used latex! Fun stuff. All of my latex has since then dried out, though, so I should probably do my next zombie with gelatin. XD

Nice job,Its so hard to find decent undead these days.Glad to see some one putting effort to look like a true zombie.

Why, thank you! I'm flattered. :meow: Next time I do a zombie makeup, I plan on paying a lot more attention to proper anatomy, and hopefully I'll have a broader color palette! I appreciate your compliments, though. =)

This is totally awsome. Full prosthetic? Gelatin? Laytex? I'm guessing its the paper towel/napkin/ tissue method maybe? Your paint is super well done and looks really "dead". Love it !

It's liquid latex and toilet paper. XD You guessed right! Thank you for the compliments. =) Considering that it's my very first zombie attempt, it's not super awful, I suppose. I just wish that I had more professional means of making prostheses, but it's hard to find the time (and money!) to do so while I'm in school.

Yea I totally hear you. Have you tried gelatin? Its way cheaper than laytex and looks very real. Its what we use at the haunt attraction I do makeup for.

I've never tried gelatin, actually! I was always under the impression that it would be more expensive than liquid latex. Where do I find it? :la: I should tell my local haunt to buy some for this coming October.

OMg this is stuff is is amazing for haunts because it is so cheap! It is literally unflavored gelatin (jello mix!) mixed with glycerine ( a moisturizer used in soaps) and water, which you then heat up in the microwave so it becomes the consistency of a syrup. All the prosthetics and gore makeup (even the teeth) on my page were made with this gelatin mix. It can be applied directly to the body, layered, put in a mold, you can stick objects in it, and so on. You can get a really great "pulpy" gore look with this stuff by scrunching paper towels and layering on the goo. After applied to the body, you can apply the paper towel skin around it and paint it with body paints or alcohol based paints. (if you have not tried alcohol based body paints I highly recommend them. they are sweatproof) For a haunt where you are applying makeup to lots of ppl in a short time span, what I do is I make the wounds and prosthetics in advance on a piece aluminum foil, paint them with good quality acrylic paint (not the cheaper stuff. it will crack when flexed!) and then stick them in a freezer until you want to use them. You CAN leave them out, they just dry out a little bit. They will still be perfectly useable. To attach them, use GOOD QUALITY spirit gum... personally I use Mehron.

Here are some super awesome tutorials....…
