    I love their make-up, but other than through school (which i can't do anymore)

    i don't know who a good person (repected, trustworthy) webstie to go through to get it...plus i'm not really sure what the name of the product i need, is

    i need grey airbrush make-up...i was told they make it..but i don't know what it is called, or where to order it..

    anyone know?

    I would check any make up or costume store in your area. DO not check places like MAC or anyplace that only sells their product.

    I ordered mine for Dragon*Con last year from Easleys.

    http://www.easleys.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWCATS&Category=208

    Quick and not price-inflated. I've used them for four or five costume-prop orders and never had a problem.

    My apologies for sending you on a wild goose chase. I forgot that Burman doesn't stock theatrical make-up.

    I have placed several orders with Easley's, and I have always been pleased with them.

    When I was doing Nightcrawler a lot last summer I used to go through like gallons of Ben Nye airbrush makeup.

    I always ordered from these guys:
    http://www.fxsupply.com/

    There prices are resonable, they ship fast, and their customer service is great. They never let me down.

    Reel Creations is wonderful stuff, but a bitch to get off. I beleve thats what they used on Nightcrawler and Mystique in the X-men movies. It won't run and needs minimal touch-up over a shooting day.
    I have the real tattoo palet and wouldent trade it for anything.

    If you are using an airbrush, Ben-Nye Aquacolor. One bottle should do it. If you are using a brush use the Aquacolor cake. Or go with a white creme makeup. One will do you. You can set with Final seal that should keep it in place. If you use a creme on a latex bald cap, mix a little castor oil into it on a separate pallet. It will keep the creme from eating the latex.

    I used Reel Creations makeup for Maul (both red and black), and absolutely loved it. It would not run no matter how much I was sweating (as long as I didn't drink anything alcoholic! LOL!), and resisted rubbing better than cream or grease makeups I've used. It did tend to be a bit of a mess to remove, as the easiest way to take it off was by slathering your face in cold cream, letting it sit for a couple of minutes, and then scrubbing with a washcloth you don't care about saving :). HIGHLY recommended to do this in the shower... You >CAN< remove it with rubbing alcohol -**OUCH!!!** - but I really don't recommend it, speaking from experience.
