Special Effects Life-casting & Silicone Prop Workshop
Instructor: Midian Crosby
Midian Crosby is a special effects artist recently relocated to Atlanta from the Denver area. She's taught this class numerous times and it has proven to be quite popular.
Here's the scoop. You'll learn how to use Alja-Safe alginate to lifecast a finger. This is perfect for those of you who are new to lifecasting. But the real fun happens after that, when you will use Smooth-On's Ecoflex series of lifelike silicone rubber and their Silc-Pig colorants to create a lifelike reproduction of your digit.
What about that epoxy dough? There's a bone in there, right? Yup. That'd be one reason to use it. Midian's likely to show you a couple more.
This lesson applies to any person interested in learning makeup effects, whether it's for stage, screen, or haunt. It's the perfect introductory class, but for the price, it's also just good fun!
