 On Thursday, December 3, from 12:30 until 4:00 p.m., Jimmie DeLoach, a master hairstylist and makeup artist for the film, television, and theatre industry, will present a hands on makeup effects workshop in the Schubert Theatre at the Labuda Center for the Performing Arts on the DeSales University campus.

DeLoach’s workshop will feature a realistic-looking arm with a compound fracture, complete with protruding bone, as well as a transformation from human to zombie.

DeLoach has worked on many film and theatre projects in the Cayman Islands. His U.S. film credits include Deliverance, Gator, and King. Since 1983, he has been responsible for makeup and hair for the Theatre Macon’s annual production of The Nutcracker in Macon, Georgia, as well as more than 60 plays at Macon Little Theatre and Theatre Macon, Georgia. His background in chemistry led him to create his own formula for a sunless spray tanner.

DeLoach currently works at La Mer Spa at the Marriott Beach Resort at Seven Mile Beach, Cayman Island, as a hairstylist, colorist, and airbrush makeup artist.
