Making a Prop Severed Hand Using Alja Safe™ Breeze™


John Fennel is a free-lance special effects artist that was contracted to make a severed hand for a popular television series. The show is filmed in HD and every prop has to be hyper-realistic in every way. He used Smooth-On's Alja-Safe Breeze™ for creating the initial clay pour for his prop.
