Grinch build -> matching latex paint and makeup colors to the fur??
Greetings All !
So, I have started a Jim-Carrey's-Grinch build for Halloween for this year. My 5 yards of Olive Green Mongolian Fur was just delivered. I've started sculpting clay upon a foam head, in preparation for making a latex mask. (I made such a mask only one time before, about 5 years ago, when I did Davey Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean.)
My concerns I wanted to ask you all about surrounds color-matching.
It seems to me, from the reference photos I've seen, that his skin color pretty much matches his fur color (or perhaps is just a hair darker). And, of course, since my prosthetic won't cover ALL of my face and neck, I'm going to need some sort of makeup.
Now, I have some latex paint around (though, granted, it's a few years old)... green, black, white, and yellow, I think.
But I'm worried about HOW I'm going to whip up paint color to specifically match this mask.. both with the first painting and with any subsequent "repairs" I need to make. ( I need to wear this for three particular events on three different days.)
And I'm also wondering just what KIND of makeup I need to get for my skin and how on earth am I going to match up its color with the prosthetic color ??
