Hey guys. I need as much help as possible between now and Sunday. We are shooting an intro video for our haunt on Sunday and I need advice, pics and guides on aging our male actor using traditional halloween "cake make-up" (Not Airbrush or Prosthetic Appliances). Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Do you have latex to do a stretch and stipple?
Try to borrow a copy of richard corson's stage make-up, its the best book out there for regular cake make up. I dont know what you have planned, but help use the set to make him look older, have him in a rocker with a blanket over his legs, have a cup of tea beside him, maybe a cane.
Good luck,
Allen H

Yes, I have latex. Thanks for the tips! He won't be an elderly man. The scene is going to be set in the woods. We just want him to look a bit aged.

Not the best, but should be ok if your looking to use just makeup. I think they sell kits for aging makeup as well.

Just one link I found on the fly.

stay away from the "ICP" make-up!!!! it's bad that if you do black and white make-up and then some one says.. oh look it one of those guys from "ICP" !!!!!

I have got that so many times and my make-up dosen't even look like them...

Anytime. Glad I could help! The makeup kits are at party stores BTW (by the way) that will cut down on shipping. If your looing for good makeup. Check this brand out. Love it. Wont come off with water/sweat. Not that cheap but worth it.

A link to pics of the makeup in use.
