Written by Hollywood make-up artist, Mike Spatola, The Monstrous Make-Up Manuals are a wonderful introduction to the world of special effects make-up!

No prior experience needed!
The Monstrous Make-up Manual Volume 1 starts with simple "paint & powder" effects, creating amazing looks you can do with just a bit of highlighting and shading.

The Monstrous Make-Up Manual Volume 2 picks up where Volume 1 left off. You'll be walked through more advanced mold making techniques and see some amazing multi-piece silicone and latex make-ups done step-by-step by some of the industry's top artists!
