Prosthetic make-up (also known as special make-up effects and FX prosthesis) is the process of using prosthetic sculpting, moulding and casting techniques to create advanced cosmetic effects.
We started working in this area in 2006 and today, prosthetics makes up a huge part of the work we do. After concept sign off, we take moulds of an actor’s face or body parts to create silicon or latex components. From this point we can sculpt the prosthetic to achieve a multitude of effects such as deep wounds, scary monster faces, dead bodies and more.
Our talented technicians sculpt, spray and paint effects, paying careful attention to how the prosthetic will fit the actor and how they will be able to move. We provide the make-up department with the finished effect so they can apply to the actor.
