MAKE’s Creative Director Jason Babler gets the “scar” treatment from makeup master Paloma Faultley.

Today’s Maker Camp dives deep into our MAKE: Believe theme as we learn how to turn ourselves into cyborgs! Well, at least we’ll learn how to look like one.makercamp_400

MAKE Lab intern and fantasy makeup enthusiast Paloma Fautley will present four versions of the makeup and show us how to apply the devices to great effect. She’ll be joined by some willing MAKE Lab collaborators and Jason Babler, MAKE’s creative director and the force behind the whole MAKE: Believe enterprise.

We’ll start by making a robotic-looking prosthetic and teach you how to apply it to your skin and make it look natural—or unnatural as the case may be. If you want to try it yourself, here are the instructions to go from humanoid to cyborg.

If cyborg effects aren’t your thing, take a look at our advanced project — Making Your Own Monster Skin! Instructions and examples can be found here.

Humans and cyborgs alike should set course for Google+ at 11am PDT to join in the fun. Got a cyborg project of your own? Post it on Maker Camp’s community page!

    Students order essays from online services so that they can handle the excessive workload, as well as create time to be used in completing other tasks. It has been noted that even the most brilliant student is not able to cope with the huge work workload, given to students by the universities, in the current education system.
