We have just posted parts 1, 2, 3, and 4 of a new video series on silicone prosthetics. In parts 1 and 2 we cover the process of correcting and molding a positive and creating a negative mold with TC-1630 casting resin. 1630 is ideal for this process as it is very hard (~75D), heat resistant (suitable for baking foam latex), and does not shrink. 1630 is also moisture resistant so it works well with clay walls made of water-based clay. Part 3 covers the casting process using Super Baldiez cap plastic as an encapsulator and Deadened Gel-25 silicone inside to create a realistic, fleshy prosthetic that will move with the surrounding skin realistically. For more information on Deadener LV and Gel-25, check out this blog post on Deadener LV. You can find all of the silicone additives we used in the casting process (such as flocking, silicone pigment, Super Baldiez, etc) here in our silicone additive section. Part 4 covers the application process using Silabond adhesive and EBA Palette colors.
