Prosthetics - Life Casting

26 - 28/08/2021

Level – Intermediate to advanced

Alginate, Plaster & Silicone are the 3 key products of this profession. Do you need to gain confidence and hands on experience with these products used to create life like 3D prosthetic appliances? You will discover how to use life casting materials in a safe and productive environment under the guidance of our highly trained Kryolan educator who will teach you all of the skills straight from the film and television industry. To start your course the focus will be on anatomy, colour theory, the health and safety of application & removal, including the importance of implications when working with prosthetic materials. Making you familiar and confident with the uses of each product will be imperative to your understanding of the life casting process. Progressing further to a demonstration of a half head life cast you will all work together to learn the process of a half head life cast. After this you will use your life cast to sculpt a small prosthetic piece. The final stages of your training will be how to apply, paint and remove a prosthetic piece safe and effectively to industry standards. This course is recommended for professionals who have had prior experience within application and colouring of prosthetics. If you wish to attend this workshop without any experience we suggest that you book onto the Prosthetics – Flat mould workshop first.

All of our Kryolan educators are current make-up artists who have been in the industry for many years. You will learn about different technique, products and equipment to use, and about the industry itself and how you can achieve the best artistry for that particular genre of make-up.

This workshop is held at our brand new Kryolan store in Covent Garden London from 10am until 5pm. The workshops are structured with demonstration and practical sessions. All products, brushes and equipment will be provided. You will not need to bring anything with you except yourself and your camera to capture images of the lesson. All workshop attendees will receive an information pack with a notepad, pen and make-up samples.

You will be awarded with a Kryolan UK Certificate of attendance that is recognised within the make-up industry.
