Prosthetics

Recently I've been playing with prosthetics and making myself into an orc.
I started with playdough since flower + water = glue, if you wet playdough a little it will stick to your face.

The playdough recipe is on the cream of tartar tin:

  • 2 cups plain flower
  • 4 tbs Cream of Tatar
  • 1 cup salt
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 tbs cooking oil
  • Food colouring if desired

Method: Mix all ingredients together and kneed till a nice consistency

Here's a video and images of my learning journey:

 

 

I then found some video's of how to do it with liquid latex and cotton wool on "Monkey See Monkey Do" http://www.monkeysee.com/play/15281-making-zombie-teeth

So I bought some liquid latex and cotton wool and went to work




I was trying to be a little more confident that I actually felt and convince myself that what I was doing was not going to leave me looking hideous and terribly armature.
A few days later I had decided that I wasn't happy with the jaw and so I made a different one that covered my chin. I am quite happy with the result

Then finally I had to take it off, after picking up pizza of course ;-)
