– No way. – What? – Stop it. – What? – Get out of town. – Please. So there you go. (applause) Yay! – I’m gonna just copy the mouth one, and then we’re going to move on to why I’m doing this. So again if you have a silicone arm because you do effects work, or a silicone head. This could be fun just
because you can illustrate to the producers and the directors, your end vision, the actor. Heck you guys could sit around with copies of heads with markers, and just come up with ideas, scribbling all day on the actors body. This is another place
where instead of using a Candidas pen or a Sharpie pen, you could go back to these Crayolas, and you can grab, and illustrate all day
long whatever you want. And if you don’t like it, take a little bit of water, (spray) and wash it off, and start over again. And that’s sort of the beauty of it, is that you can keep playing with your design until you get it correct. You don’t have to be an amazing artist right out of the gate, cause let’s be honest most people aren’t. There are few individuals who are just amazing at illustration
right off the bat. And so if you need a little bit more time, you have to go through
a sketching process. This is a really fun way of doing it, and you get dimension, and you get curve. So now that we have
that there I’m going to go to the next part of this. And prosaide where are you? Here you go. I’m gonna pour a little bit into the cup. And the reason why I’m using prosaide for these things is, not only do I like the way it sticks, and it’s safe for the skin, but it’s water based, and if you’ve noticed
everything that we’re using, as far as our inks go, are alcohol based or silicone, therefore I don’t have to worry about the adhesive itself actually interfering with my ink. And what I’m doing is I’m applying prosaide to the image, but I’m not gonna, I’m not going to apply
prosaide to the lip piece. Why? Because I’m never going
to apply these together. I would apply the lip piece separately, and then I would apply the
cheek piece separately. One, because this is too hard of a curve. You have this curve. You have this indent here, and then you wrap up onto the nose. The lip pushes into the nose here, but then it curves up and around the upper lip. You have too many complex shapes going on. So to do this in one piece
would actually be more difficult than what I
want to try to accomplish. So what I’m going to do, I’m only going to apply glue to this cheek piece. Why? Because just like pulling
a pattern off the body, whether it’s one piece or multiple pieces, you’re engineering your tattoos, and the way they’re going to be applied to the skin here, and not later. It’s the same way you would do an overlapping prosthetic. You have to know how you’re going to apply those pieces to the face. So when you’re cutting your sculpture up, before you float it off the life cast, you know what piece is going to overlap the others. So it’s important to
have all this engineering done ahead of time. Let me grab the hairdryer. (hairdryer) Dry that prosaide. (hairdryer) And the reason why I’m showing you this is not only for your
knowledge and information, but let’s say you’re doing a show, and your going to hire
someone like my company to make these pieces for you, but you have no way, you don’t really know how to describe it, and we’re not going to get the actor in. You could illustrate something like this. Do this kind of process, and then send us
ultimately the flat images, and we would have an exact replication of what you’re requesting. This is an absolutely monumental help to what we do, and it’s something that
we very rarely get. And I think it’s just
because a lot of people don’t know how they would approach something like this. So now that my prosaide is set. It’s dry. This is a set up towel. This is just a cloth paper towel. It’s a little bit more durable than What is it? Brawney or something like that, that you would buy at a grocery store, but it’s just a set up towel. If you would go like a
Lowe’s hardware store, and get a shop towel, and they’re usually blue towels, it’s the same thing. This is just white. I’m gonna take this. – Could you use blue? – You could use blue. I’m gonna take this, and I’m gonna press it into the image. And I’m very careful about keeping the image flat. And I don’t have to worry about going and pressing on to that lip because the lips not going anywhere. It doesn’t have glue on it. And I’m keeping this flat. And why? Well because when I pull it off, and the paper goes back to being flat it’s going to distort that image just ever so slightly. But I want that distortion, so when it wraps back onto the face it goes exactly where it’s suppose to go. So once I’ve pressed that in, and I feel like I have it. Here comes the magic. – No way. – What? – Stop it. – What? – Get out of town. – Please. So, there you go. (applause) – Yay! So now I have a reverse
image of my tattoo. I can scan this into the computer. Reillustrate it and photo shop. Clean it all up. Do exactly what I want with it. When I print this into being a tattoo, it will fall very specifically right on the face exactly where I want it to be. And I would just proceed by now putting glue onto this one peeling
it off and having it.
