The Imaginative Works of Andrea Leanza

Andrea Leanza is a special effects artist located in Treviso, Italy. In addition to creating outstanding silicone makeup and special effects pieces, he is a 'paleoartist', creating replica museum quality dinosaur sculptures.

The following photos outline Andrea's processes for ceating a silicone 'Nightmare' style mask and glove, a 'Zombie' makeup appliance and an on-skin Skin-Tite® silicone buildup.
Ecoflex 00-30® is Andrea's silicone of choice for mask and glove pieces, and he uses Smooth Cast® 320 for both casting and moldmaking. As Smooth-On develops new material, Andrea follows suit, expanding his knowledge and techniques accordingly.
