Zombies, Pancakes, and Booze

We recently had a blast doing the Zombie Fx at the Pancakes and Booze Art Show hosted by Tom Kirlin.

Since the Fashion show featured Bikini suites we had to get creative in the full body make-up application. we had 2 1/2  hours to complete 15-20 zombies.

The venue had low lighting conditions so we went for more of a high contrast theatrical look.

We had a great team of SPFX Artists Charles Wills, Leigh Schwatz, Amy Mills, Chris Mills, and Cig Neutron.

Our Newest Creature an the Lab

So I recently got a call for a rush job on a monster from Gears Of War

 Brandon Dishman and Charles Wills busted out the sculpt in a little over two days Then it was off to Mold land. We did a quick shim job with the help of lab resident Leigh Schwartz as well as our good friend James Conrad.

Ahh the joys of fiberglass. the mold sat out in the sun to help it cure quicker.

Charles Wills and I burning the midnight oil while fill the body with guts and stuff thanks to all of our interns from Make-up Designery we were able to do a butter batch and get Him closed up.

Our first pull out of the mold worked (not that we had a choice)  Rachael Kooyman and Mariana Olesijuk Seam the beast. the we attached the hands and proceed to paint the silicone.

 Final step build a box big enough for this dude! Well he was a success can't wait to do a display model for the shop.

Forest Miniature

So After a lot of hard work and colaberation of many people at the lab, we have come to the end of our forest project. It was an eye-opening experience and I have gained a lot of respect for those who used to create whole worlds this way.

Thank you to all who helped bring this forest to life.

We will put up more pitures once it is on set and lit correctly

Amy Mills From Silver Shamrock Lab does a makeup effects tutorial shows you how to do a gross zombie makeup with sloughing skin. You do not have to use a prosthetic, the system works great with 2d zombie makeup.

This is an example of what the make-up looks like without prosthetics

Here is a new Pros-aide transfer tutorial video by Makeup Fx Tech.

Ballistics Gel Torso for "Deadliest Warrioir"
Working on Deadliest Warrior Season 2&3 allowed us to do a lot of testing on the Ballistics Dummy. We were able to take the primitive Ballistics made on Myth Busters and bring it to the next level. We are constantly  improving our Ballistics test Props . We have formulated Gel for all different types of weapons testing from Guns to Swords and even high powered explosives. Silver Shamrock Lab Customizes each dummy to fit the needs of the test. We currently provide Ballistics for several reality TV episodes as well as  branches of the government.
