Contented Pig Man by melesmeles-faber Contented Pig Man by melesmeles-faber
A similar and better latex pig prosthetic mask created by me, is for sale here: www.etsy.com/listing/154865410…

15/10/2012 2nd time I've tried on these prosthetics. This time I glued on the snout a little lower, and in the end even got the mouth to move quite a bit.......

It's pretty roughly painted up with water based face paint...as is my head shoulders and one arm, then it ran out :)

I wanted to make more of these and try and sell them, but the jaw mould especially didn't turn out very well.......:(

I will try again......

Oh wow, that looks awesome. I could so see me wearing that prosthetic glued to a latex bondage hood. Maybe painted like a red river hog with some hand punched hair. Great sculpting !!

The moulds aren't very good, one went all bubbly on me....plaster is tricky stuff....

No, the plastiline (plasticine) gets wrecked when taking it out of the mould!:)

ewww, that's why I don't use that stuff. Also if you spray it with a release agent ( like cooking spray, lolz) before casting a 2 part mold it should help tremendously.

I might try that, but the reusable clay really isn't bad....:)

The mold looks like it came out ok, just try and make your blending edge thinner. And if you want to hide it better try mixing silica powder(fine ground glass) and pros aide till its a paste consistency. Use that to blend the edge down and dry it with a hair dryer. Works wonders.

It's one rough application, partly because I was in a hurry (deadly mistake), partly because I just don't know the hell what I'm doing!:) I need to do it more often!:)

One of the problems might be that I made the edges of the prosthetic too thick!I suspect...

I'll look into getting hold of what you recommend.....

"That'll do pig. That'll do."

Not bad at all!!!

I'm sure that you'll work out any kinks as you do more molds and castings.

Thank you! :) I've got to learn how to get the plaster mould(s) right for them though! ;) Or there will only ever be one example! ;)
