The Death Wheel is a 6-color assortment of Ben Nye's highly pigmented classic Death colors that fits comfortably in any makeup kit.  The silky texture to these creme colors allows them to glide seamlessly over skin and latex making this wheel a versatile tool for any character makeup application.

With shades like Frankenstein, Pale Vampire, Death Blue Grey, and Death Flesh, this wheel is one of Ben Nye's most universally applicable wheels when it comes to character and horror makeup.  The Death Wheel is a masterful collection of colors useful to every theatrical, stage, special effects, cosplay, and character makeup artist.


Use a sponge or synthetic brush to apply creme colors.  For custom blends of shades, use a spatula and mixing palette to mix two or more shades together.

Apply creme colors to the skin in stippling motions to build up opacity and buff out in soft circular motions to blend or diffuse colors.  To make creme colors more sheer, mix in moisturizer, or a few drops of isopropyl alcohol with creme colors on a mixing palette.

Set cremes with Neutral Set setting powder.  Gently wipe off makeup with Quick Cleanse on a cotton pad.  Wash off residue with soap and water, oil-free Hydra Cleanse, or a facial wipe.

Pair With

The colors in the Death Wheel grotesquely complement the tones available in both the Monster and Zombie wheel.  Pair these three wheels together for a complete arsenal of ghoulish tones to accomplish any horror character makeup.

Seal creme colors with Final Seal after application for enhanced durability.  Use Ben Nye's Quick Cleanse makeup remover to easily take off any of Ben Nye's creme color formulas.
