I have recently had my final practical assessment for my current course! So I thought I would share a little bit of what I do at college, what I created and some of the products I used! As you can see from the title I created a deer inspired beauty makeup look, incorporating prosthetic ears as prosthetic pieces were part of the brief.
Creating The Prosthetics –
To create the ears I used alginate to cast the ear itself then filled the cast with Alpha Plaster, once that had set I removed the alginate from around the plaster positive. One I had cleaned and smoothed my cast I rubbed a very thin layer of vaseline all over the plaster positive then started moulding using chavant clay.
Once I was happy with how the ears looked for my character I started to add layers of liquid latex letting it fully dry each time doing about 8-10 layers in total. Then to remove them from the mould I started puling the edge off and adding talc to the whole thing adding more each time more lifted from the sculpt. This is because latex sticks to latex so it would stick together if you did not add the talc to create a barrier.
Now you can either pre-colour them using the PAX method which is a mix of 1/2 latex 1/2 acrylic. However I just airbrushed them whilst I was applying the pieces as I find it easier to blend them into the models skin that way.
