    Question. Is the gelatin-based prosthetic liquid more or less prone to tearing than liquid latex? I want to create webbing for my fingers. I was gonna use latex, but if my one friend is at the con, she's horribly allergic to it. :/

      Water smooths the clay but it also makes it a little sticky

    If I just wanted to make something look flat, and un-textured with a gelatin prosthetic, could I just put it on a flat surface, wait for it to dry, then peel it off?

    ik u used water in the bowl so idk if that helped any but if u store ur clay in a large gabage bag with water in it or in a bowl in the same bag itll keep it moist and leave no need for the water bowl at ur work station but over all amazing talent

  • DK Graffiti

    amazing job but i noticed u end up doing more work cause of ur clay being so dry and brittle idk if that was the idea but i think u could cut some of ur work time with a more wet clay

    Hey specialfx nerds! Random question over here if you ever read me ( I love your stuff). I graduated in a costume design program at a renown school in montreal for its design program, and I've been looking to do work like this, as it is quite fascinating to me.. now, i've tried researching where I could work for a company that does what you do.. for the life of me, I can't find anything! Is there anything that I could use for my research? Thanks for your answer if ever you do!

      Hey thank you first of all, appreciate it. Have you ever done SpecialFX Make up or something like it? I know there are a lot of great schools teaching it. I for my part am no professional in any kinda way. Im doing it for fun and trying to find and show cheap and easy ways to replicate things they do in the professional world. Didn´t do any videos the last few ... for a while now since they are a lot of work and I´m pretty busy with work etc.. But back to you if you intend to do it professionally I would recommend you'd do a course or school where u have the material to do such things and where they show you how to do it. Those classes can be very pricey though. But the thing that is very important about these classes is not just what you learn but the connections you get out of it. So there is one class/school/workshop which is really good its the cinema makeup school ... but like I said its very pricey.... If there are any companies which are doing these things which you actually asked for ... I honestly don't really know but I would recommend .... you love watching movies ?? I guess so.... so watch the credits of your favorite movies if they have a lot of special effects in them for example "the lord of the rings" and look for the name of the "Lead MakeUp Artist", "SpecialFX Artist" or something like that, write it down and google it. Check out what they did and where they worked. Maybe that will help you a bit. :)
      Greetz !

    Hi there. Do you know how to make a prosthetic with cheap materials, but a hard one, instead of soft and gelatinous. I'm thinking of some kind of hard protuberance.
    Many thanks!

      Sharni’s Makeup Artistry & Beauty buy some aliginate. You can make a life cast using it and it's relatively cheap. Also plaster gauze for the shell of the mother mold and some plaster of Paris. All in all I was out 30 bucks with mine. You'll also need a friend to help.

    Is there any way that you can prepaint this product before application? and what paints would i use?

    • Gravity Hero

      Dingdongdiddlydick Thin washes of pax paint. It's just pros-aide mixed with some acrylic paint. You thin it down with some water and paint washes to get 80% of the painting done. The rest should be done after application so you can adjust and blend into your skin tones.
