Special Effects Makeup Artists
Special Effects Makeup artists assist in pre-production and production stages of films. IXT Studio artists do special fx make up for local independent films, haunted houses, and theatre productions.
During the Halloween season, Mayling Pao is a lead make up artist for Fright Nights at the South Florida Fairgrounds in West Palm Beach. She also does creative body painting for events and competitions.
