This is going to be a fun new addition to our Workshop repertoire. Last year we did a trial Creature Class and it was a huge success! Everyone had fun creating their own creature with a variety of prosthetic pieces and makeup to chose from. This year we are having 3 Creature Workshops with different themes. The participants will still have freedom to chose from a variety of three dimensional pieces/processes as well as huge selection of makeup, however every class will have a theme. 

Our first workshop will include laying crepe hair along with the assorted prosthetic appliances, makeup etc.

So with crepe as part of the tools we will be using on our creations, suggested ideas will be orcs, trolls, wolves or any hairy fantasy creature your imagination can come up with. Our demo will be a troll.

A couple of things to keep in mind. Make sure your model is not allergic to wool or latex. The crepe can be itchy so kindly prepare your model for that as well. Make sure you and your model dress in appropriate clothing the class can be messy!

 

$250.00 + GST

This is our most intense workshop and an all day affair! Workshop size is limited to four who will be paired off in the workshop. After the demo each person will cast their partners face and then be cast in return. We will have make up staff assigned to each pair to assist wherever necessary. Their will be a short break for snacks but this is definitely a full day of fun and challenging work. 

It is important to be aware that your entire head, neck and shoulders will be encased in alginate and plaster bandages for approximately 45 minutes (times can vary). As we do the back of the head first your face should only be covered for about 25-30 minutes, still any concerns regarding claustrophobia should be taken into consideration.

Make sure you are dressed in appropriate clothing, it can get messy! As the cast will include shoulders an old t-shirt that can be cut or any item of clothing that can comfortably expose shoulders will be necessary.

Pizza will be provided.

This is a messy workshop! You will be applying to your model a 3D prosthetic slit throat. The slit throat will be hooked up to a device that we will use to pump blood through at the end of the workshop. The skill set we will be working on will be prosthetic application including proper, seamless blending of prosthetic to skin and coloring of prosthetic. We will go over RMG, alcohol makeup and cake makeup and discuss the pros and cons of each. The finale will of course be the bleeding effect.

Your model should be aware any clothing they wear could be stained despite the precautions we take - this includes under clothing and shoes. This class is MESSY!!

 

$225.00 + GST

Maximum 8 participants.

This year we are only offering the three workshops together due to high demand last year.

 

The 8 participants will be paired off. After the demo each person will cast their partners face and then be cast in return. We will have makeup staff guiding and assisting wherever necessary. At the end of the workshop the face casts will be filled with Hydrocal.  They will remain at the store for use in the workshop the following week.

Remember that your face will be covered in alginate and plaster bandages for approximately 30 minutes so any concerns regarding claustrophobia should be taken into consideration.

Make sure you dress appropriately this workshop can be messy!

 

This is the next step! You will take the face cast from our previous workshop and sculpt a nose, wound or whatever your imagination can come up with. You will then make a cast of the sculpture in order to make a prosthetic that is custom made to fit your face. This is a pretty relaxed, creative and fun workshop, a nice break from the previous week which was a little more intense. The cast will be left at the store to cure and will be used to make a prosthetic in the next and final workshop.

 

This is it, the final workshop in the casting bundle. Everyone will now have a mold to make a prosthetic for their face. After the prosthetic has dried you will apply it to your face and finish with coloring. See you hard work over the last few weeks come to life!

The purpose of this workshop is to teach two different types of burns using different products for each. This gives the person applying the makeup a chance to learn about the various strengths and weaknesses as well as the varying application methods of these products. The more varied experience gives the artist more options and flexibility when considering how to create burn effects in future applications. 

The face burn will be an acid burn complete with a little bit of smoking from the burned flesh. The arm burn will be a 3rd degree burn with some exposed bone.

Your model should be wearing a short sleeve shirt preferably without a collar. Remember we are using products that can stain or worse so you and your model should dress accordingly. Makeup will need to be removed from model before application of burn makeup is applied. If their are any latex allergy issues please let us know before day of workshop so we can provide alternative products.

This class is our second in our new Creature Workshop Series and is going to focus on water creatures. Again it is all about your imagination! We will be providing a variety of prosthetic appliances (including gills) and 3D products  to create your own look as well as our full repertoire of colours, glitters, shimmers for you to use to enhance the creature you create.

Mermaid? Fish creature? Fish Monster? It is all up to you!

Make sure you check with your model on any allergies like latex. Both you and your model should dress appropriately for the class, it can get messy.

This workshop is a lot of fun because you actually build a broken arm from scratch unto your model. The end result we will be working towards is a visually realistic three dimensional broken bone. We will be using a variety of products and will discuss alternative options as well going into the pros and cons of each. We will also discuss several 3D options as well as blood choices. To complete the injured state of your model we will do some bruising effects on the arm and face including a black eye.

Your  model should be wearing a short sleeve shirt. Remember we are using products that can stain or worse so you and your model should dress accordingly. If their are any latex allergy issues please let us know before the day of workshop so we can provide alternative products.

The third workshop in our Creature series will end with Ice Effects Creatures. Here again we will provide various prosthetic appliances (horns, noses, etc.) as well as product to create your own 3d effects. We will be using ice and snow effects in our demo ice creature and participants will also have these products available for their own creature along with a myriad of colour palettes, glitters and inks.

Make sure you check with your model on any potential allergies such as latex and as the makeup can be a bit messy both of you should dress accordingly.

A new casting class for 2019! This is the perfect class for people who cosplay and want to create their own ear prosthetic  appliances for various characters. We will have a demo after which we will pair the participants off and they will cast one of each others ear in turn. The casts will be filled with Hydrocal.

Casting classes can get messy so please dress accordingly. All ear piercings must be removed prior to casting.

This is another pioneer workshop and the focus will be specifically on Halloween makeup for children. The makeup we have at Don's is of course safe for adults and children however some products are definitely easier to apply and remove then others. We will discuss various products and options for different Halloween looks and then demo a couple of different Halloween makeups on our models.

Our participants as always are encouraged to bring a model to work on and in this case children are especially encouraged since the makeup is for them anyway! 

We will have a palette for each participant to use and keep. We will also have other products available to use on your model. Playing with makeup is fun and we will encourage both artist and model to have some fun!

Halloween Treats will be provided so give us your best "Trick or Treat!"

This has consistently been one of our most popular workshop since we started 6 years ago. The goal is to create a scary zombie with trauma wounds on the face and arm. We will go over the necessary contouring to create an appropriately hungry looking zombie but when the demonstration is in progress we will include alternatives so that each person in the workshop can use their own creativity to make their zombie unique. We will go over several traumas that you can choose from to add to your zombie.  We will be using a variety of coloring, blood, dirt, and will discuss alternative options as well, going into the pros and cons of each. 

Your model should be dressed preferably in old clothes that can be zombified... as this can be a somewhat messy workshop. A short sleeve shirt collarless shirt would be best. If their are any latex allergy issues please let us know ahead of time so we can provide alternative products.

It is a tradition that we always demonstrate a surprise "gross out effect" as our finale for our last workshop before Halloween and this one will be no exception!

A group photo sounds like a great idea!

 

$70.00 + GST

Maximum 10 participants.

We will announce the name of this workshop in June. It will be a brand new workshop which will be debuting and that is all we are going to say for now!
