IS THIS COURSE FOR ME? Stuart is a very experienced and skilled prosthetics artist and teacher who can work with all levels. This course is a good introduction to using flat moulds and running pieces in silicone - previous knowledge and some basic understanding of this is good but not essential.
Focusing on flat moulds for old age and character work, this course will involve running the pieces from supplied flat moulds, then applying and colouring.
This 2 day workshop will focus on the technique and process of casting excellent appliances from flat moulds (which we will supply for you to use). Flat moulds have revolutionised the speed and quality of appliance manufacture, and by learning the best practices, you can help ensure great results every time.
Casting appliances well is essential if you are going to produce pieces that are a good colour to match the subject’s skin and have feather thin edges that blend into surrounding skin seamlessly.
By applying pieces you have made from the professional quality moulds supplied, you will learn how to avoid the mistakes many make when running their own appliances.
We will cover:
- How to mix a good base skin tone
- How to prepare the mould
- How to apply cap plastic
- How to create amazing edges
- How to fix common problems
- Applying a flawless prosthetic
- Ageing character painting and colouring.
- Safe & effective removal of prosthetics.
