Want to learn lifecasting? This one day workshop is packed with hands-on skills.

The Essential Lifecasting Workshop - Wed 8th Sept 2010

      The fundamental step in creating custom prosthetic makeup is to get an accurate copy of the face that will wear it. This workshop is a fantastic opportunity to watch, learn and then do a lifecast all in one day.  The day will be split into two sessions.
Session one will consist of a full head and shoulders lifecast demonstration from start to finish using a live model.  During this time you will see how the process is done economically, safely and correctly.  We will also look at lifecasting using silicone too, as this newer material has many advantages which will be demonstrated.

Notes will be provided on the day detailing procedure and materials, suppliers and costs involved should you wish to do more lifecasting in the future.

Session two will then consist of the group working together to lifecast either the face or hand of one another. This will take place under supervision, and everyone will be involved in helping in all aspects.

Everyone will finish the day having been involved in several lifecasts, leading to familiarity with the process.  You get to walk away with a plaster copy of whatever it is you had cast.


     Lifecasting is a very safe procedure when done correctly. The tutor, Stuart Bray, has done literally hundreds of lifecasts for many TV shows and films including 300, Watchmen, Harry Potter, The Mummy, Shaun of the Dead, Dr Who, Saving Private Ryan and many others. 

     The skills, techniques and professional approach to lifecasting learned over many years will be shown in great depth in this workshop.  A great opportunity for a no-nonsense and hands-on workshop from an active professional.
