In celebration of The Souvenir Part II on general release in the UK we spoke to Hair & Make Up Designer about her exceptional work on the film, which was nominated for a BIFA in 2021.

Siobhan discusses her work on the mask of Tom Burke’s face:

I absolutely loved painting this mask to create a life-like representation of Tom Burke. From a life-cast of Tom’s face Dan Martin at 13 Finger FX produced a fibreglass positive which I then painted using a mixture of acrylics and Skin Illustrator alcohol colours, I stippled and flicked colour in layers to suggest depth, even with the stubble, three dimension was achieved by flicking grey and dark brown over claret over green. Extra care was taken to achieve realistic looking brows with paint alone as obviously I couldn’t punch hair into the fibreglass.
