This page will be following my Independent study about cinematic make-up and prosthetics!

First Step: Find a model and cast her face! Hali Rich-Reid was my volunteer

                                  IMG_7654 IMG_7655

Using Alginate I was able to capture Hali’s face, unfortunately the mixture set faster than expected and her nose was not fully captured. But thats okay!

Next I created a plaster mold from the alginate and cleaned her all up!

Now I can begin sculpting my design! Since this was my first at everything I stuck to a simplistic forehead piece avoiding any undercuts.

After making my sculpt I realized there was no surface area to create keys for the two part mold to sit, so I created a plaster base to the face by soaking it in water then pouring in new plaster for there to be a bond.

Now to make the mold of the clay sculpt!

Beautiful clean mold!

Next step foam run/foam rubber casting! A lot to learn here but with a few bumps things turned out.

Uh oh! The mold cracked but thats okay, but hey my first foam prosthetic!!

Time to clean the prosthetic, and with extra rubber had some fun with paints and make-up application.

Super excited about how this first cast came out. Learned a lot and the next piece can only get better!

Are you mad as a hatter?
