Prosthetics – Bald Caps (Pinewood Studios)

20 April @ 10:00 am - 21 April @ 5:00 pm

| £369

Boost your bald cap knowledge during this two day, top level course. Bald caps remain one of the benchmark makeup skills across the film industry, making it a valuable talent to have. This course will teach you the fundamentals of applying bald caps in order to overcome three key challenges:

1. Managing the natural hair underneath.

2. Matching the skin tone.

3. Maintaining the look, all day.

Course Summary & Learning Outcomes

Working with the two most common bald cap materials – latex and vinyl – this extensive bald caps course is an opportunity to practice with both and will equip you with the essential skills needed to:

  • Dress natural hair to create as flat and smooth a surface as possible
  • Make a pattern of head and hairlines to ensure the best cap fit for your subject’s head
  • Mix and match skin tones, creating an opaque base to disguise natural hair and adding the skin translucency afterwards
  • Apply finishing techniques to create the authentic appearance of a bald head – freckles, pores, blemishes and more
  • Troubleshoot on set problems, carry out bald cap maintenance and know how to fix them – minimising the appearance of wrinkles and folds, hiding bad edges and reducing the effects of errors and sweat
