An introduction to beginner level special effects makeup and out of kit effects. Learn how to use alcohol paints, wax, gelatine, silicone, latex, and cap plastic to produce bruising, cuts, scrapes, burns and other injuries.
Along with the pre-recorded teachable content, you can also access optional extras. There's a weekly live online video class, and an accompanying limited edition Freakmo Beginner Makeup kit to bring the in-person learning experience online. The online class is organised through teachable when you enrol, and the materials kit is done externally through Camera Ready Cosmetics.

I've curated a limited edition Freakmo Beginner Kits which can be bought from Camera Ready Cosmetics in the USA. They have everything you'll need to follow along at home (sans cap plastic, which I will be making and shipping from Australia). There's a USA version which needs to be ground shipped, and an international version which has the few flammable items taken out.
- Alcohol Paints
- Liquid Latex
- Nose and Scar Wax
- Third Degree Silicone
- Cap plastic
