Here is a fun little project I put together recently. I was hoping to wear it for Halloween but I didn't get the actual costume put together in time. But at least I got the pack up and running. Added lights and speakers with a sound card that was activated by the proton wand. Yep, I'm just a big kid.
I've been updating and tweaking the website the last few days. I think it looks a little better. I updated the top logo, added a whole new picture gallery for "On The Set/Behind The Scenes". Thought it was fun to see a more candid look at some of the projects I have been lucky to have been a part of.
Hope you like the new additions.

Hello everyone! Happy Halloween! I love being a dad and doing fun makeups on my son and his friends for Halloween. This year my son wanted to be the Joker from The Dark Knight. He has been waiting all year for this. He even grew his hair long just for this day.
For his make-up I used a couple of small Bondo appliances that were encapsulated in plastic. They were sculpted on a flat board and molded with Smooth-On Body Double Silk. I intrinsically colored them with a drop of pax paint. Those were applied with Telesis 5, 99% Alcohol (to blend the edges) and followed with a coating of Bondo stipple. For paint I started with White Aqua Color. I kept it a thin wash of color and had him wrinkle up his forehead and eyes when I applied the color with a white sponge. I followed with black Illustrator and applied it with an Iwata Eclipse airbrush around the eyes. I used Dark Mauve Illustrator for the mouth area and I also applied that with the airbrush. Then I used the black Illustrator to contour and dirty up the look a bit. I did a little bit of brush work around the eyes with the black illustrator. I sealed the whole make-up with Blue Marble Sealer. That's about it. It lasted all day and when he got home hardly any touch-ups were needed!
Just writing to remind you that you can follow me on Instagram (@clintonwayne)to see more make-up pictures! I post photos from time to time so you don't want to miss out!! See you there!!
If you have wondered why I have been quiet lately on my site, well I have been working on projects that I can't really talk about. Those darn NDA's we sign forbid me from letting everyone know what I have been up to these days. Let me just say that I am thankful for the work! Thanks for checking in!!
Stay tuned for more information soon.
Well that sad time has come. W.M. Creations, Inc. has closed its doors in North Hollywood California. I worked at this company for almost 20 years. Matthew Mungle has decided it was time to close it up and move his shop to Austin Texas. He is downsizing it considerably. I want to publicly thank Matthew Mungle and John Jackson for allowing me to work with them during our time together. We had some great times working on some great projects. Throughout the years the core W.M. crew changed but the driving vision stayed the same. That is why I worked with Matthew and John for so long. I wanted to work with people I considered friends and who shared the values I also held. Thank you both for being my mentors and most of all, my friends.
W.M. Creations, Inc. was an award winning makeup effects studio serving the film & television business. Winning countless Emmy Awards and several Academy Awards during it's time serving the industry.
Every once in a while you get to work on a project that is extraordinary. One such jobs for me was getting to work on a photoshoot with Annie Leibovitz for the Disney's Hitchhiking Ghosts. We turned Will Farrell, Jack Black and Jason Segel into the classic Disney characters. It was so fun and getting to work with such talented people is something I will never forget.

Portland Makeup Artist on Netflix show
The Netflix show "I Don't Feel At Home In This World Anymore" was filmed locally in and around Portland Oregon in the spring of 2016. The Makeup Effects were designed and created by Steve Prouty in Los Angeles. Clinton Wayne was responsible for the "on set" application and rigging of all the makeup effects and prosthetic makeup created by Steve. Clinton was assisted by Christina Kortum on set to bring these illusions to life. Together Clinton and Christina killed off character after character in this dark comedy. Be sure to check it out on Netflix!!!
Portland's Grimm - Prosthetic Makeup Effects
I wanted to share a behind the scenes photo. This is a shot from Season 6 episode 4 "El Cuegle". The appliances were made by Barney Burman's studio B2FX. Barney really made some good stuff for a show that had a really tight turn around schedule.
Grimm's Final episode! - Portland Oregon's Awesome Prosthetic and Makeup Effects Show Ends after 6 Seasons!
Be sure to watch the final episode of Grimm on Friday March 31st!
I have had the great honor of working with Barney Burman of B2FX on this very fun show. Barney's shop has created some very fun and neat makeups on an insane TV schedule. I consider myself lucky to have been a part of it for two seasons! Every episode had a fun creature character. Congratulations to Barney and his crew on their creations for this show. The cast and crew were great and I will miss working with them. Good times for sure!
Prosthetic Makeup Artist On Location
Hello there. Sitting in my hotel room I thought I would write a bit about the life on the road for a Make-Up FX Artist. So often we find ourselves living in hotel rooms while shooting on location. The sacrifices we make to do our job. While on the road you can't see your family, it's hard to take care of daily life chores, your sleep schedule is very erratic, and you diet suffers. Not to mention logistical hassles like work visas and that stuff. But, on the flip side there are good things as well. I love seeing new parts of the world, meeting people from different areas, revisiting places you've been, often getting to film in places that are only open to those on the film crew and otherwise closed to the general public. Also I have seen some truly beautiful locations I would never have seen if I wasn't part of the show I was on at the time. I enjoy waking around the city I'm in and exploring the area around the hotel. Trying new restaurants. I feel blessed to get the chance to get paid to travel and see the world. :-)
Hello everyone! Welcome to my blog. I've never blogged before so bare with me. :-)
