Do What Scares You

Do what scares you!
Clowns!! This is what scares me!

When I say do what scares you I truly mean it....I knew that if I was scared of my own work then I did what I set out to do! To freak out others!

So here is a brief step by step on how I created this look

1) First thing we needed to do was to make a life cast of my face! So it starts with you sitting there with alginate goo all over your just watch the video to see what me and my classmates went through....this is not our class but this is the same process we did! Enjoy!
You need Flash Player in order to view this.
Lifecasting at Cinema Make-up School
Cinema Makeup School (Hollywood) students in the Prosthetics class creating full head lifecasts for their foam latex and silicone appliances.
Yay Lifecasting! LoL Now that we have finished and my head is now hard  Here is what it looks like....
2) Now its time to make a snap of the area you are wanting to make a piece for, as you see on my head pic I have an outline of where I want my snap....You then make clay walls to hold in the Hydro-cal (which is a type of cement) in place....The piece on the right is the snap after the Hydro-cal is dry....I then took more clay over that area and started to sculpt out the mouth for my clown. You pour more Hydro-cal onto the sculpt you have done to make the piece on the left...
3) Once you have your sculpt you can then make gel which I will give you all the steps for that at a later time! You have to make key holes on your snap cause when you pour the gel into the sculpted side you take the side with you face and put them together then you stand on both sides.
TA DA!!! You have your piece you can apply onto your model....we had to make a ton of these cause sometimes the edges were too thick or too thin..I then added fake nails to the gel to create the teeth! Which I loved and turned out so well. Just to get to this step it took a month!!

The day of the exam Ryan had to sit for a 5 hr application while I put on this piece and painted it. This has to be by far my fave look I did all that year.

Today's Tip

When working on a model for this long make sure they are comfy, make sure they have snacks and drinks....even though Ryan wasn't able to eat lol poor guy. If that is the case make sure they have eaten before hand. Also always ask them if they are good sometimes having stuff glued all over your face can freak people out....remember if it wasn't for your model you wouldn't have a look!!
