My First Zombie Make-up

Last edited Fri Oct 4, 2013, 02:30 PM - Edit history (1)

I wanted (needed) to do a Zombie make-up for a project I was working on. This is my willing captive having endured my first attempt. The yellow polka dot pajamas were a deliberate choice to add a little whimsy.


In color and other.

















I used Elmer's glue mixed with water, single-ply tissue, and homemade fake blood on the sores. I sculpted with a chopstick. Also used black and purple eyeshadow around the eyes and sores. The face base was a mixture of blue/gray and white make-up with a dusting of baby powder.

The ulcers look very realistic.
