Who uses Body Double®? Special effects artisans from
Hollywood to Bollywood, wax museum fabricators, sculptors, medical fab
shops and more. There is nothing quite like it.
Body Double® captures detail perfectly and its molds are
strong and long lasting. A major advantage that Body Double® has over
alginate is that you can cast almost anything into a silicone mold and
they are reusable.
Hair encapsulation has always been an issue with Body
Double®. If you do not thoroughly apply Body Double® release cream to
hair covered skin or mix Hyper-folic® release agent into the Body
Double®, the rubber will encapsulate hair and be painful to remove.
NEW Body Double® SILK® releases from hair covered skin
easily. It is mixed 1A:1B by volume, has a pot life of 6 minutes and
cures in about 20 minutes at 73°F / 23°C.
Body Double® SILK® is compatible with original Body
Double® Standard and Fast. Because of this, you can back up an initial
layer of SILK® with layers of Body Double® Standard or Fast. We have
had long time users of Body Double® Standard and Fast test SILK®. All
have given SILK® a very enthusiastic “thumbs way up”.
