thank you so much for this tutorial. i recently completed my first silicone castings of anatomical hearts around hip flasks, and for my next project i will be making hairless rats from ecoflex silicone.
i was just wondering, would this method be suitable for embedding the whiskers and small hairs that are found on hairless rats into the silicone? the silicone would be a solid piece, rather than a mask, and i was concerned about how well the hair would stay embedded.
EvanCampbell can u please help me. I had done few sculptures using grey clay in college. Now, the dean of our animation college told me to do a girl character so as to put in his cabin. This is a great offer for me to get recognised and make my parents feel proud.
The main thing is I worked on greyclay, but could not preserve them as they got cracks on. I was planning to do this girl character with Plaster of paris with minute details. "Can you suggest which would be better and lasts long. Need some tips on the making process." I only have 15 days left for this, 'coz some fest is going to be condected within a month where my work can get recognised more.
Why don't you sculpt it out of sculpey. Sculpey is easy to get at local arts and crafts stores and you can bake it after your done...and it turns into a hard ceramic type finish that can be painted. Very easy to use for a finish model and no mold or casting work? Depends on how big the sculpture is?
Thank you so much for all of these amazing tutorials. They offer and insight into maskmaking that had me clap my hands and almost! Almost giggle with joy. Wanting to one day venture down this road of creation, it is lovely to get some visuals on how everything is done. Thank you!
Oh gawd... Your bringing my worst nightmares back. I used to hair punch years ago on a couple of my props... Each friggin hair at a time.. I swear I was going to get arthritis by doing it lol. Nice work man! And your tool is made the same way I did mine
