Day 5 FX Lessons
DAY 5: WAX:
FX WAX is a very varied material. Consistency and ease of use vary drastically by brand. Some are harder to manipulate, some do better heated up, some work better with alcohol to smooth out and prevent sticking or castor oil. FX wax can build up features like noses, eyebrows and chins without prosthetics quickly, or be used to make wounds quickly and seamlessly. It won't hold up to movement or heat. It's sometimes used in theater where the audience is far away and detail isn't important but also is great for photo shoots. It's probably not very useful in film or haunted house setting.
