The Art of Casualty Make-up and Acting: The Art of Casualty Make-up and Acting is designed to be used by those who are involved in make-up or acting for the portrayal of specific injuries or illnesses in simulated casualty situations. Actors and producers rehearse their dramas for the theatre. In their performances they use sets, costumes, lighting and make-up to create the illusion of a real life situation on the stage. Simulation make-up techniques are both explained and illustrated throughout the book. Practical guidance provided in this book may be useful, not only to first aiders and actors, but also emergency service personnel and all those training for casualty situations. This publication should be used in conjunction with the St John Australian first aid publication which gives more detail on signs and symptoms for specific injuries and illnesses.
