This book is packed with pages upon pages of practical special effects. From makeup to gore, this has techniques from simple to advanced. I found it extremely useful as I don't have a special effects makeup lab in my house or garage and they provide you with techniques that untrained people would be able to accomplish. Recommended to any film / theatre person looking to get their feet wet in the field of special effects makeup.
