Technical Skills Seminar


Embalming, Reconstructive and Airbrush Techniques

Saturday, October 19
1 – 5 p.m.
Austin, TX

Presented by Vernie Fountain, Fountain National Academy, Springfield, MO

This seminar will give you a large amount of technical information on procedures that professional embalmers perform on severe trauma cases in an effort to provide an open-casket viewing for family and friends. Airbrush cosmetics will be discussed and demonstrated with live models. These techniques assist in improving the appearance of a decedent. The seminar will also offer methods to promote the value of embalmers' skills to the public. (4 CE hours)
