LOTS!! Everything from where to get your supplies to basics, paint and powder make-ups, a ton of 3-D Out of the Kit techniques, full 3-D construction make-ups, to taking face casts, sculpting, making molds, and creating prothetic appliances out of foam latex, encapsulated silicone and even the latest technology of Prosthetic Transfers. And finally, finished Prosthetic Make-ups using the different types of appliances. There’s over 26 different finished make-ups in this book, and about a bazillion techniques to learn! And, best of all, it’s written in plain English without a lot of technical jargon, and over 750 photos to illustrate the techniques used.

What Will I Learn In Book ?
This all-new (and I mean ALL NEW!) sequel features unique makeups created just for Book 2 by:
OSCAR and EMMY winner Joel Harlow (Star Trek, All 4 Pirates of the Caribbean films, Lone Ranger, and Johnny Depp’s personal makeup artist) creating an original “fish man” creature using all silicone prosthetics.
Also in Book 2, OSCAR and EMMY winner Steve Laporte (Beetlejuice, Terminator 2, Lost, Longmire) demonstrates some of the most amazingly realistic (and yet simple) casualty makeup techniques
As well as Multiple EMMY Award Nominee Eryn Krueger Mekash (American Horror Story, Glee, Nip/Tuck) presents an easy to duplicate, very scary aged gothic vampire.
"I have known Mike Spatola for over 30 years, and to read his new "Monstrous Make-Up Manual"- well I wish I had this when I was a kid! It is by far the most comprehensive, detail oriented, with the largest amount of photo reference I have seen in a how to monster makeup book, EVER! I loved the variety of makeup artists Mike has featured, from up and comer Melissa Jimenez, to old school magician Steve LaPorte to Super Makeup Star Joel Harlow. This book is filled with great techniques, what supplies and materials to safely use on your actor, and the best advice from true Hollywood Makeup Masters. If you love Monsters and Makeup, this book is a MUST HAVE!!!"

""Mike has once again delivered a wealth of undeniable makeup wisdom, that will benefit all artists from the novice to the seasoned professional. “Book 2” will fortify it readers with a cornucopia of tools and techniques for tackling almost any makeup challenge. As artists, we should always strive to expand our knowledge and skill. Regardless of how much we might “think” we know, there is always more to learn....And there is much to learn within these pages.
Book 2 is absolutely amazing! Thank you so much for letting me be involved in it and please save me some pages in book 3 when that happens!!!"
