In this Instructable I am making a silicone severed head of myself
Step 1: Casting a Clay Head
I started by pouring several layers of melted monster clay into a silicone mold of my head, letting them cool and harden in between. After demolding the head I resculpted it to get rid of the air bubbles and wrinkles caused by the bald cap.
Step 2: Molding
I made a two part Ultra-Cal 30 mold of the clay head.
Step 3: Casting a Silicone Head
I cast outer skin of the head using two layers of thickend platsil gel-25 and filled it with a 3 pound density flexible foam.
Step 4: Painting
I painted the head using thinned down platsil gel-10 mixed with silicone pigment.
Step 5: Adding Hair
For the back of the head, I glued down the hair in large chunks. Then I hand punched all of the hair within 1.5 inches of the hairline.
Step 6: Adding Gore
For the bone and some other details, a made hard clay pieces that I glued to the inside of the neck. Then for the fleshy bits I used pigmented platsil gel-10.
