Sally Williams graciously provided me her face for a special effects session, where I aged her using latex and cream colours. I’m quite pleased with the end result.
Ageing with latex and make-up is a simple, cheap and effective way to age actors for film and theatrical performances.
Depending upon how much ageing you do, ageing with latex can be a lengthy process as you literally stretch part of the skin, apply the latex and then dry it with a hairdryer. Ageing Sally’s face, neck and hands, and greying her hair, took approximately two hours.
