It is important to me to sculpt prosthetic designs that enhance and compliment human architecture.  The prosthetics shown were designed over a long period of time, and some of them are more successful than others.  While I have dabbled in 2-piece molds using urethane foam,  I decided to leave that and latex foam constructions to those with better skills than I.  I paint mold latex in layers on the inside of my headpiece molds.  That way I get better control over surface details.  I mix acrylic paint with latex and match the make-up colors used on the rest of the face.  This makes application easier.  The process makes a very durable prosthetic.  The main drawback is that they’re hot!  If you are planning to wear them for longer that 4 hours, you may have to deal with perspiration, or seek someone better versed in foam latex.
