The Making of Kruos

  |   Behind the Scenes, Latest Projects, Videos

The character of Kruos is an ancient cave dwelling creature that is slowly being consumed by his crystal magic ultimately becoming crystalized himself.



The Creation Process

The creature and teeth were all sculpted out of Chavant NSP Medium. The cowl, face and chest prosthetics are casted out of encapsulated silicone. All pieces were painted using Skin Illustrator from PPI.


Then, Makeup Forever Star Powders were applied on top to create the iridescent effect. The teeth are a combination of dental acrylic and vacuum-form plastic. The victim skull — affectionately nicknamed “Buster” — attached to the staff was made of resin, with glass shards carefully glued by hand over the entire surface.

On Saturday September 19th 2015 I applied the Kruos makeup live — with the assistance of Stephen Imhoff, Jr. — on the PPI Products stage at Son of Monsterpalooza in Burbank, California.


This was the second time the look was completed. The first test makeup was applied one month prior to the Monsterpalooza demo, taking approximately three hours.


The video below features a time lapse of the first test makeup.
