Hello. I'll start off by saying I'm a bit of a novice. I purchased a sweet Nosferatu prosthetic that I am looking forward to wearing this Halloween. I've seen several tutorials that say to use PAX make up to color the prosthetic. I am wondering if I should also use the PAX to achieve the pale complexion of my face and head not covered by the prosthetic or some other make up. How do I get them to match if not? What do you advise?

OOOOH, OOOH, OOOHH !!!! Love Nosferatu !!! My mom dressed up as him in the eighties and she scared me big time, great memories.
Anyway....about your question here is a link regarding PAX http://www.newtomakeupeffects.com/pax-paint/.
We always just went with Theater makeup, sorry I can not help you with what you are asking. It does seem a little complicated though to try and match colors.
Good luck ...

Have you read this? Stuart knows what he's talking about: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-paint-foam-latex-appliances/

You can use PAX elsewhere, but you really don't want it on your eyes, so you can make a match with creme makeup or greasepaint. Note that it's also a major pain to get off. You can base the appliance in PAX to match your skin tone, then do the rest with other types of makeup.

Thanks! Being Nosferatu he's going to be pale. I need myself and the the appliance and my exposed skin to be the same pale tone. Can I put other make up over the PAX?
