WOLFMAN - Rick Baker and Foam Latex

I was so excited to see that Rick Baker had used Foam Latex on 'Wolfman'.
It looks fantastic , makes me realise that you can work with foam and do the makeup job well. Too many people are going the silicone route and that is great but lets not forget the old foam latex that made most of our careers in monster making come to life is still out there. (Yes I hear you saying , but the makeup didnt have to be translucent) but hey I LOVE foam latex, working with it, applying it , painting it, love it love it love it.
Burman Industries have just aquired GM Foam from Gil , but he is staying on as consultant and for quality control of the product and it will retain the GM Foam name , which is fantastic news.
I spent alot of time on the phone in my early career talking to Gil with all the issues I had working with foam in Australia and he was the most informative, generous man you could meet. I got to then spend sometime with him in LA at his shop. Great Man! Thanks for the Gallons and Gallons Gil !
Check out afew interesting articles including the Rick Baker/ Dave Elsey 'Wolfman' in the latest Makeup Magazine.
Happy Monster Making to all.   Kym
