Wookiee hair punching, a necessity for the face, is not a complicated thing. It is tedious and time consuming, but it’s what it takes to get a really nice natural-looking face.

There are two ways that one can place hair on an otherwise hairless item. One is known as laying hair. This involves gluing hair to a surface, skin or rubber. This is handy when one has to cover great surfaces in a short time.
Great, now that you have finished pulling the latex mask from the plaster mold you are ready to detail and paint the mask. You feel pretty good about yourself nowdays don't you? I bet you think the rest is down hill from there. HA!
Masks are typically molded in multiple parts. This means you have two or more mold pieces that are then rejoined for casting. The goal when creating a multi piece mold is to minimize the gap between the mold pieces.
LMC: What’s your favorite clay?
VH: Depends on what I’m doing. For large sculpts I like WED or Rod’s Bod. Both are available from Laguna Clay. For smaller sculpts (prosthetics, figurines, etc) I like this plasticine I get from Australia.
The last year or so I have been meaning to put up something about life casting... I hope this helps.
This partical life cast I did, was for a good friend of mine and member of the 501st and RL.... Trent! Cool
This particular project is for this years DC in Atlanta.......
Pic 1 - I decided to wipe an area clean on the new sculpt.
Pic 2 - I use for the most part a small stylus tool. I also bend mine in an angle.
Pic 3 - Taking the tool you want to poke into the clay in an angle creating a hole but also creating a ridge over the hole.
