how I created the special-make up for the movie; Dodong Guapo (1991 -Seiko Films , Manila Philippines)

Preparation for make-up


STEP 1 and 2. Preparation .(above picture) We cover the hair with bald cap before we cast the actors face. All hair should have separators so casting materials wont stick on it. Casting . (right picture) We mix the Alginate and cover his face leaving the air passage on his nose open, and laid abaca fiber for the alginate to hold on to the backing mold which is not shown here.

STEP 6. Mold. After the sculpture I brushed separator wax on the inner mold so the two plaster will not join when I pour the yellow plaster which will be the outer mold, when this is dried we open it ,clean it and pour the foam inside and bake it for 2 -3 hours in an oven
