Marsha On Dark Toned Pieces
Marsha Shearrill will talk us through using our two tone pieces for darker skin tones
First of all the idea of having on the market silicone prosthetics that enables makeup artists to skip at least 2 steps in the application process was brilliant.
Who hasn’t been pressured by production to shorten application time or even apply an effect on set? A pre-glued peel and stick piece is quite enables you to do just that. There’s no digging through various glues and prepping of pieces, it’s done for you. Also as an artist that tends to work with a variety of ethnic skin tones, in addition to lighter, I really appreciate the pre-colored range that fits most skin tones.
It should also be noted that the custom colored skin toned pieces are beautiful. Not too ash/gray or not red/ruddy, just realistic flesh tone's and textures.
I’m particularly fond of using the two-toned colored pieces. These are primarily injury wounds that are pre-colored with an appropriate second color to simulate the different tissue inside of the lesion. Again shortening application time and achieving greater realism is the purpose of these pieces. When coloring wound pieces during an application the layered colors can mix and some realism is lost.
The two-toned pieces allow the artist to mix, blend and spatter as many colors as desired without losing depth or the illusion of skin layers.
No other company has this combination of features. I use them to keep my applications easy, efficient and realistic for all skin tones.
