Materials -- Crème Makeup in Black, Bleached Bone, Thunder Grey, and Ghost Grey from the Mummy/Ghoul Character Wheel, a few brushes, a stipple sponge, and Translucent Powder.
-Start by applying Black around both eyes, you want it to be pretty thick around the eyes, but not all the way up to the eyebrows. Next apply the Bleached Bone around the Black blending it slightly into the Black and blending it out away from the eyes. Go back and forth between the two colors getting a nice messy blend that fades from lightest to pure black as it goes in towards the eyes. -To add more detail to the skin and to help connect the gelatin areas to the rest of the exposed skin we did some stippling and shading with the crème makeup from the Mummy/Ghoul Wheel. To give the skin an overall pale look without covering the colors of the gelatin or the skin tone completely, lightly stipple Bleached Bone over the whole face. -Next give the saggy decaying flesh more dimension by shadowing just below the gelatin with Thunder Grey and then Black. Place your brush on the skin right up against the gelatin and feather the Grey out and down. Apply Black over the Thunder Grey, blending slightly together. Also apply the Black and Thunder Grey in any hollows or crevices in the gelatin you want to appear deeper. -Add one more layer of texture by stippling Ghost Grey over the entire face. -To set the creme makeup, pat Translucent Powder onto the face. You can use a Powder brush like we did or use a Powder Puff, either works just as well. What is important is to start by pressing more powder than you think you need onto the face, then carefully brushing away the excess. You don't want to smudge the makeup by brushing over it before it is set.
