Creating a Urethane Resin Makeup Prosthetic Mold

Overview

Shell Shock® brushable plastic and Plasti-Paste® trowelable plastic can be used in combination to create a rigid, strong, inexpensive mold. A mold created from these materials is lightweight, very strong, and can be used for casting platinum silicones directly.

This sequence outlines the construction of a mold to cast silicone f/x makeup appliances.  The mold is based on a lifecasting of a model created with Body Double® lifecasting silicone rubber.
