Class Experience

**If you took my beginner's course, the only additional need is Vaseline**

A full list of the supplies used in this course are as follows:
  -Foundation (cream recommended) 
  -Highlight & Shadow (cream recommended) 
  -Wound Color Wheel (red, purple, yellow, black) (cream recommended) 
  -Liquid Latex
  -Fake Blood
  -Brushes (thin)
  -Sponge Applicators
  -Stipple Sponges
  -Nail Scissors (or other such tool for safe carving/cutting of latex)
  -Toilet Paper

Supplies to have on hand:
  -Makeup wipes / soap
  -Paper towels / old towels

A structured notes guide will be provided for each lesson should students wish to take notes. Both a print-friendly and digital copy will be provided, but the use of this guide is not required.

For questions or recommendations on supplies,  please don't hesitate to reach out!
5 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Please be warned that some images and projects may be unsettling to some. I do show examples of real bruises, but all of the images used involving blood are of fake (make up) injuries only. I am always sure to warn students that these images are coming, just in case anyone wants the chance to look away! Be warned: if real blood makes your student queasy, fake blood might, too!

We will do a safety test before using any materials for the first time, but as with any makeup product, please be conscious of possible allergy issues. Some latex techniques also require the use of a sharp blade or cutting tool (I recommend nail scissors).
