My design, vision was a futuristick tribal look. Inspired by African scarification. I made a more beauty version of it on my template. Inspiration from X-men mystique I placed leaf form gelatin shapes on the shoulder and neck to represent a textured skin. The hair was inspired by the wax hair in the Himba tribes. I want to brade it and cover it with Fullers earth. I tested out with eyelashes and tried possible skin base.
Creating the leafes for the shoulders in practical class, I coulored them with aqua coulor and I used gelatin on orange bag to get the wanted texture. I used clay and poked my pencil in to get round shapes in the same size.
Dots I made on my table at home
Testing the look togheter, I felt it was great! But halfway finished, like i needed another base then my skin colour.
It was a huge difference without the eyelashes, it goes from a beauty makeup to a character makeup
Testing the hair and a base. I found out that it would take a time to create a base, and black with skimmering blue was not the right colour. It made a nice effect and idea for another shoot.
