Join Ed Martinez, an accomplished move FX artist, as he demonstrates the process of making a platinum silicone life casting of a face, from the ears forward, neck, and stopping at the hairline. Topics to be covered will include the preparation of materials and model, model safety, silicone application and producing a positive casting. Each participant will have the opportunity to make a platinum silicone rubber life-cast (head, hands/arms, feet, etc.) of their choice, specific to their needs. Price will vary depending on size of the cast. Participants are encouraged to be in teams of two. Bring a model or pair up with another club member to make their life cast from as I don't think you'll want to try to cast your own face. This would be bad. Make sure that the area to be cast is shaven clean and free from hair. NOTE: Eyebrows are excluded and can be dealt with accordingly.
It may or may not be possible in this workshop to complete a more complex and time-consuming project, but we will try to accommodate you. Please make sure that if you plan on attending that you allow your self enough free time for the day.
As if this wasn't enough, Ed will have some of his movie props on display. Please be courteous and do not touch. They are for display only so please ask Ed before handling.
Make sure you wear your work clothes for this build. Nice clothes might get damaged. Dress in warm layers, this is an empty warehouse type building so it can be chilly.
The cost for the class will be a base price of $60 per student. That means if you want a full head, hand, arm, foot, we will need to adjust the price accordingly. If the amount of materials is increased, a slight price adjustment may be necessary.
