Creating a Rigid Master Using Free Form® Sculpt

Overview

Ryan Sparks of Terror Anatomical, LLC specializes in casting accurate, realistic body parts for clients that use them for films, stage productions, Halloween exhibits, medical demonstration models and more. A recent project for Spencer’s Gifts national retail chain called for making several hundred silicone and urethane plastic castings of a Werewolf’s arm display piece. Normally, Ryan would sculpt in clay and make a mold from that for production. Anticipating that this piece will be used for years to come, however, something more archival than clay is required. Ryan found Free Form® Sculpt sculpt-able epoxy putty to be the perfect medium to create and archival master. His process is chronicled below.
