Taught by film veteran Shelly Pinder, this class will teach you everything you need to know in order to create your very own prosthetic appliance from start to finish! By the end of the class, you will have gained the knowledge and experience needed to sculpt, mold, cast and apply an encapsulated silicone prosthetic piece from a silicone flat mold. On day two, you will be applying your prosthetic on yourself or a model (recommended). Professional-quality photos will be taken of your work and the mold is yours to keep! Light snacks will be provided.
Please wear clothes that you don't mind ruining. If clay, silicone or Baldiez get on your clothes, they will not come out. Materials and tools will be provided, but some items are available in limited quantities. Please feel free to bring your own sculpting tools, alcohol-activated makeup, hair dryer, heat gun, airbrush, compressor, paint/makeup brushes and mirrors.
If you wish to only observe the lesson and do not intend to participate in the hands-on portions of the class, Observer tickets are available for $150.
The class location will be on Teasley in Denton. Address will be sent after payment has been received.
