Face-up : TUTORIAL by tr3is Face-up : TUTORIAL by tr3is
*** : CAUTION : ***
Please note in the first place that you should PROTECT YOURSELVES from using all mediums, especially for ones having problem(s) with Respiratory system, Hormone system, or other sensitive diseases, as many mediums involved in face-up progress HARMS, from dust allergy to chemical absorption.

(Fully wearing protection equipments makes you looking similar to Darth Vader, Gundum Pilot, WW soldiers in the battle of toxic gas but those equipments help saving your life and the rest.)


*Spraying any aerosol spray and using thinner MUST BE USED IN EXCELLENT VENTILATION AREA.
*Most aerosol spray, including MSC, will keep on releasing its volatile component for at least 24 hours after applying. I recommend not to bring sprayed piece(s) into closed ventilation space where you're going to spend a period in (including air-con room) within 24 hours or longer after spraying, upon the weather condition. It dried, but not yet stop releasing the volatile.
*As above, doing face-up in closed space (like air-con room or too small window room) is strongly not recommended.
*Avoid touching any chemical medium directly.



Well, I don't think I would take this long to do a face-up tutorial. (I've spent about 3 and a half months!) May be because of many interruption came. (one of them is VISA documents, tons of!)

Anyway, it's finally finished... but wait, not yet complete all every technique I'd like to share.
There's another 2 pieces I have to add. One is 'Other Techniques' (Solving MSC white coat & Tracing old face features) and another one is 'Tools & Materials Precaution'. These two will be added later. ^_^

Please do not hesitate to leave me your question in the comment if you have. I will be welcome to reply if I could. ^_^

PS. Very large deviation, sorry~!

For the lips cracks, bottom eyelashes and eyebrows, do you draw them using acrylics or pastels?

I'm using this tutorial to attempt my first face up and I was just wondering, what type of acrylic gloss do you use? Is it just a spray? :)
