The custom in many places is for loved ones to have a viewing of the deceased before they are laid to rest. Often people will have difficulty believing the person has died if they do not see it for themselves. In the event of ongoing illness or a death caused by a serious accident, this would not be the best idea, if not for the work of makeup artists who work for morticians.

People might be surprised to learn of some of the materials used to make a deceased person look at peace. A combination of plaster, wire mesh, cardboard, paint, and other unexpected supplies may be utilized.

One last final look at this person will allow most of us to accept they are at peace.
