Makeup Artist Creates Dark Fantasy Costumes From The Lightweight Wearable Porcelain And Stained Glass

According to Joyce Spakman, a Netherlands-based the artist who elevated the make-up art: “I am a professional makeup artist and a self-taught stylist. Whenever I am trying to come up with new creatures, costumes, or sagas for a costume/makeup look, it quite often happens that some of the more beautiful materials I would love to work with are simply not usable because of their sheer weight.

I have always desired a lightweight, pliable version of porcelain and stained glass, to bring my creations to the next level, so I took it upon myself to create Porcelain 2.0—my own lightweight wearable porcelain and stained glass.

As I am sometimes inspired by some of the world’s most impossible materials for costumes, I have to spend a lot of time researching and developing ways to recreate these materials. Whenever I have a certain design inside my head, I really don’t like to make concessions, as I am not only trying to create a character but rather a whole story, and it’s all in the details.

Being locked up at home during the beginning phases of COVID-19 gave me a lot of time to experiment with a multitude of techniques and materials, sometimes successful, but quite often, not so successful. But it eventually led to the creation of faux porcelain and faux stained glass. The whole process for a single piece of costume still takes 3 weeks.

I already had an amazing year by achieving the first place during the COVID-19 edition of the World Bodypainting Festival, and with this new technique, I can only hope to see the likes of Rihanna or Lady Gaga wearing one of my costumes when the whole world will become a bit safer again!”
