In the Advanced – Silicone Prosthetics class, instructor Dallas Harvey teaches students how to life-cast the face of a live model as well as how to correct and prepare a casting for creating “gel-filled” encapsulated silicone prosthetics. In this class students will have the opportunity to create a full face set of “snap” molds as they learn proper set-up of snap molds to create a multi-overlapping prosthetic character design.
This course is largely based with hands-on learning and also includes live demonstrations and lectures by the instructor. It is encouraged to bring a notepad to take notes and a camera to document your progress as you learn. All clay, sculpting, molding, silicone, and prosthetic materials needed for this course are included in the course tuition fee. Students will be responsible for providing themselves a model and all body safe industry standard make-up, adhesives, airbrushing or body-painting supplies, wardrobe, wigs, nails, and other accessories to apply their final make-up design on the final day of the course. Airbrushes and compressors will be provided for student use during the final make-up application. After final make-up application completion, students will have the opportunity for their model to be photographed in a professional photo shoot provided by the studio. Upon finishing the course, students will receive a certificate of course completion signed by the instructor.
NOTE: Previous sculpting and prosthetic experience, or completion of previous prosthetic courses with Vancouver FX Studio is necessary prior to taking this course.
