Eyebrow Blocking

29 Jan

Today as a class, in broken down groups we demonstrated to each other different ways of blocking out eyebrows; discussing the process, products and uses within the professional industry. The purpose of this task was not only to learn the obvious, but stretch our experimental abilities; questioning what was being asked of us and trying to formulate specific ways in which brow blocking worked for us personally.

I was in a group with Leanne and Emily, we split the task between us, sharing research, display and practical task. Prior to the presentation day, we did a trail run.

Despite our mistake in the size and cut of our eyebrow piece, we concluded that our process was the most successful in terms of visibility when done correctly. However, cap plastic application may not be required if dealing with a theatre production, as the detail will not be visible from far away. In reality, if dealing with a HD production, the actor would need to shave off or wax their eyebrows; as such small details would easily be recognised on the screen, rending coverup redundant.
