Life casting: Face mould and cast

Duration: 1 day

In teams of two, we will learn the ins and outs of life casting.

        • We will learn about skin safe moulding products, safety procedures, and other important factors when taking a face cast.
        • We will each create a face mould; and then a plaster cast.

This class may be of particular interest to those interested in prosthetics as the cast can be used as a base to fit re usable makeup onto.
