Pop art and a Zombie... yes please! This type of design is always lots of fun. So let your imagination run wild on this lovely FX Friday and let's get started with this week's tutorial.
Here's what you'll need:
- Tinsley Stitches Small 3D FX Transfer
- Mehron Modeling Wax/Putty
- Mehron Spirit Gum Liquid Adhesive
- Mehron Liquid Latex
- Mehron LIME Paradise Face Paint
- Mehron Dark Pink Paradise
- Mehron Beach Berry Red Paradise
- Mehron Red Paradise
- Wolfe White Face Paint
- Wolfe Black Face Paint
- Amerikan Body Art True Colors Pixie Paint Glitter Gel
- Kryolan UV Dayglow Green Pressed Powder
- Ben Nye Lumiere Grande Colour Amethyst
- Cameleon Kabuki Blending Brush
- Global Brushes - 3/4" Filbert
- Global Brushes - Round #4
- Ruby Red Professional Makeup Applicator
Here's how to apply:
The first two steps are to apply your Tinsley transfers.
Follow the directions on the package. It's very simple. 1 quick tip... be sure your wound does not touch any of the packaging. It will stick to the plastic and ruin the transfer.
Apply spirit gum to the corner of the forehead and let it set to a tacky consistency. Then, grab your Modeling wax and roll it into long strips. Kind of like making snakes with Play dough. Apply the wax to the spirit gum in a winding pattern to appear brain like.
Grab a bit more wax and press around the brains. Be sure to smooth out and blend the bottom with the forehead. The top portion should look more tattered and torn.
Apply liquid latex under the eye in a "U" shape. After the latex has dried, gently pull up the section just underneath the eye as shown.
Apply spirit gum to the cheek to add an extra wound (optional), then apply wax in a gash shape.
Load your #4 round brush with Wolfe Black and paint in the brain crevices. Load your #4 brush again, this time with Paradise Pink and fill in all of the wounds and brains. Follow up with Berry Red and Paradise Red to give each wound some dimension.
Load your Kabuki brush with Lime green and paint in the entire face and shoulders. Apply Ben Nye Amethyst eye shadow with your Makeup Applicator. Load the opposite side of your makeup applicator with Kryolan Green powder and contour the cheekbones, sides of nose and top of forehead.
Load your #4 round brush with Wolfe black and paint in the eyebrows. Follow up with Pixie Glitter Gel on top of the eyebrows. Reload with Wolfe Black and paint the nose.
Continuing with your #4 round brush and Wolfe black, begin outlining all of the wounds. Add your sagging lines under the eye and give definition to the rest face as shown.
Load your Filbert Brush with Paradise pink and paint in the lips. Outline with Wolfe black loaded on your #4 round brush.
Finally, load your #4 round brush with Wolfe white and add highlights to the lips, wounds and brains.
Have fun with this look and be sure to share your work with us on Facebook and Instagram.

Live, Love, Paint!
