Do you have a basic skills apart from 'powdering of the nose' ? You have to be apt with colors and lightings as well. There are plenty of make up courses out there so it won't be too hard for you to locate one.

You could contact the funeral parlours directly and inquire. Again, it's quite a big spectrum from the mom&pop set-ups to the more estbalished ones.

Give it a go...

you will see dead people ( Sheesh! Had to do that :oops: )

Have to do this as well. You will also have to touch dead people & lift their heads to do their hair as well. :cool:

Doesn't bother me that much. After your first body snatching job, from a crashed helicopter/plane underwater, nothing much bothers you.

SMS one day let's catch up, I can write a book about you mate.

By far I think this is one of the most unique and 'sincere' post in this thread.

Hard to get training as it's a dying art - and you'll be up against some stiff competition

If they are that georgous they'll 'knock them/'em dead' 'in the dead of night' but if you're into necrophilia don't worry because 'dead men tell no tales'.
