Applying and colouring SFX silicone prosthetic pieces

STEP ONE:

Coat the back of the prosthetic with prosaide or similar and then coat the skin area where it's to be applied. Ensure the glue is dry before gently applying. If a mistake is made, use 99% alcohol to deactivate the glue and then reapply.

When applying prosaide, make sure it isn't too thick. The adhesive is dry when clear. If you apply too much, it will take much longer to dry. If you can see white spots, it isn't dry and will not stick.

 

STEP TWO:

Melt away the cap plastic edges with acetone, gently wiping outwards with a cotton bud or soft brush. 

Some parts of the acetone may be thicker than others and will require additional blending. The outer silicone ring is a throwaway part.

STEP THREE:

Colour the piece with alcohol activated paints. Use darker colours to add depth and yellows/oranges for the fatty tissue.

You can also colour with cream or silicone paints.

STEP FOUR:

Use a stipple brush to flick red colours over the prosthetic and the skin to blend the piece. You can also dab colours to blend it in, however light washes are better and will have a nice effect.

STEP FIVE:

Add some blood!
