Tech Notes

pros thet ics (pros thetiks), n. the branch of surgery or dentistry that deals with the replacement of missing parts with articial structures.

Tech Notes

This word has come a long way since Webster. It no longer means some doctor making a doll-like part to replace a missing part. It now includes an artist altering a subjects natural appearance so they look like something else. In effect, the art of prosthetic makeup has enabled actors to be more convincing, effects to be more realistic, and in general, movies to be more believable. One of the all time industry greats, Dick Smith, made many lms work by enabling an actor to age before our eyes. To truly appreciate the art of aging an actor (by applying custom made prosthetic appliances to the face), you rst have to understand the tremendous amount of delicate work involved in the process. Its denitely not easy. As a matter of fact, Dick has spent most of his life lending technical assistance to any person in need, and believe us, there are plenty. He, as well as many other artist, have helped us develop a comprehensive line of prosthetic products so you wont have to waste your time and money locating materials. The entire art form of prosthetics evolved like it did because of the vast amount of raw materials available. They started off using liquid latex and then discovered the beauty of creating light weight appliances out of foam latex. The problem is foam latex is difcult to use because its hard to control the chemical reactions. Even the most seasoned effects artist has run-ins with foam latex or any catalyzed material from time to time. It is this factor in the art of prosthetic makeup that separates the professional from the amateur. It is our advice to study as much as you can and remember there is no better way to learn than by doing. In addition to dealing with the unpredictability of foam latex, you also have to be concerned with safety. Three dimensional makeup artists use a lot of hazardous materials, and believe us, we have heard a lot of horror stories (ie: people vulcanizing their faces...developing rashes...becoming dizzy). Many of the materials we sell are not fun to work with.
As a makeup artist, professional or amateur, it is your responsibility to learn about the safety hazards accompanying the products you use and the products you apply to other peoples faces.

There is a vast amount of information available for those willing to learn about chemical safety; consult libraries, school chemistry departments, request and read Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS). Before you work with a chemical, investigate its hazardous factors. Use precautions when handling any chemicals. Consult local authorities on proper material disposal.

Product Warnings

We have decided to be a bit more specic about our product warnings. A product is subjected to any or all of the following labels:

-FLAMMABLE -RESPIRATORS REQUIRED -SENSITIVE SKIN ALERT -TOXIC IN UNCURED STATE -HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH

Basically FLAMMABLE means it will ignite. Dont smoke when using it. Dont drive around town on a hot day with this material in the trunk of your car. Basically...use your head! RESPIRATOR REQUIRED means just that. Wear a respirator with the proper lters for the proper type of material being used. In the SAFETY EQUIPMENT Section you will nd respirators and dust masks. Although this gear is not foolproof, it does help. Always work in a well ventilated area (preferably outside during a typhoon). Install a vent system at your work bench to pull the air out. Invest in a continuous air supply system. Whatever the material calls for...do! SENSITIVE SKIN ALERT means this material may cause irritation to sensitive skin. Things like spirit gum, collodian, and latex have been known to irritate actors' skin. Always consult with the actor about skin sensitivity before applying any makeup to their face or body. Try one of the Barrier Creams listed in this catalogue. They really work! TOXIC IN UNCURED STATE means you will get a rash if you expose your skin to these chemicals when they are in a liquid state. But once these chemicals are mixed and cured, it becomes a non-toxic matter. Prime examples...Foam Latex Components, RTV Molding Compounds, and Urethane Foams. In the SAFETY EQUIPMENT Section you will nd protective gloves. In many cases thin vinyl or latex gloves provide enough protection, but certain chemicals penetrate these gloves without you knowing it. From there, the chemical runs through your blood stream. Make sure you are wearing the right glove for the right chemical. HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH means we dont recommend you use this product. Thats right...well sell it but we dont recommend it. You use these and all other products we offer at YOUR OWN RISK.

Life Casting Materials

Life Casting & Mold Making


Life Casting Materials
Taking a facial impression involves the following: -Have your subject sit upright and drape a piece of plastic around them. (If the shot calls for the actor to be laying down, then cast the subject laying down.)

Photography from Starlog SFX Issue #3 Article-Life Casting with Bryant Tausek Photograph by David Motok

-Apply petroleum jelly to the eyebrows and eyelashes.

-Apply an inexpensive Woochie Bald Cap. Secure edges with adhesive.

-Mix the alginate according to directions. Cold water extends the gelling time. -Apply to subjects face using your hands with your ngers pressed together like a spatula making sure you leave the breathing passage uncovered. Work quickly yet carefully. -Once the entire face is covered, begin wrapping strips of plaster bandages around and over the face. Pay attention to reinforcing the delicate areas. -Once the plaster bandage hardens, gently remove the alginate cast by jiggling it.

Alginate Impression Material


Teledyne - Getz Prosthetic Grade Cream

See the Books & Videos Section for detailed casting directions!

-Immediately brush on a thin layer of White Hydrocal making sure there are no bubbles, then pour in additional plaster. It is wise to position a handle in the back of your life cast so it will be easier to separate the molds.

-Teledyne - Getz Company, one of the major producers of the dental impression materials, has a Prosthetic Grade Cream which is a colorless, odorless, ne-grade, slow-setting alginate impression material. As Teledyne Getz Prosthetic Grade Cream has less than three percent deformation, very accurate casts can be made with it. Recently they improved the alginate by extending its setting time to between 5 and 7 minutes. Mix with water until its a creamy batter and then apply to the face. Make sure you dont block the subjects airway. Reinforce with plaster bandage. Remove. For more details see the Books & Video Section.

Woochie Bald Cap

-Excellent for casting because its inexpensive, durable and yet has thin edges. It is accompanied by step-by-step instructions on application. Made of rubber.

RETARDER. Algislo is the alginate-retarding agent created especially for artists, special effects, restorers, taxidermists, sculptors, mold makers and anyone who wished they had more control over their alginate product. Algislo is the answer to all alginate users! To slow set time: in 1 6 ounces (480 ml) of water simply substitute approximately 12 ounce (15 ml.) of your water mix to 12 ounce (15 ml.) of Algislo for each minute of additional set time desired, for up to ve and even more minutes. OR for every pound of water remove 1/2 oz. (15 ml.) of Algislo to add one minute (approximately) of set time. BONDER. For best results surface to be bonded should be recently set. The longer the set, the poorer the bond. Thoroughly spray the surface of the alginate and apply your new alginate layer. We recommend spraying the surface rather than using a paint brush for more even results and to avoid pulling on a tacky area.

A REAL STUDIO BREAKTHROUGH - ArtMolds has created the 3-in-1 alginate control formula . . . a must have for anyone who uses alginate. This is an indispensable multi-use formula for all brands of alginate. USE AS A . . . RETARDER . . . increase set time up to 5 or more minutes. BONDER . . . bond a set layer to a new layer stronger than any other method available. SOFTENER . . . soften freshly set alginate to allow application of ber to the surface to rmly hold a mother mold.

SURFACE SOFTENER. When applied to a recently set surface, Algislo will soften it sufciently to allow the application of ber to secure a mother (shell) mold. For best results we recommend spraying the surface before it sets. This will act as a surface set retarder giving the lifecaster ample time to apply ber on the surface.

Silicone Impression Material


Lifeform by Mouldlife
-Lifeform can be cast in layers due to its ability to bond to itself, requires no release agent will release from hair & skin, has high elongation and tear strength, superior detail reproduction and can be used with a wide range of casting resins or silicone that can save valuable time thats better spent elsewhere.

Moulage, Bandage & Plaster

Moulage & Silicone Impression Materials

Moulage Impression Material


Alco-moulage
-Alco moulage is an inexpensive impression material that will cast any object including props, masks and faces. It can be re-used over and over so it is perfect for beginners who are practicing. Must be heated in a double-boiler so it isnt easy to work with. By the time it is cold enough to apply to a subjects face, it starts to turn back to its original cottage cheese like state. However, just like everything else, once you learn the technique, its easy. Reinforce with plaster bandage.

Silicone Rubber Impression Material


Pink House Studios Ply-O-Life
-A non-toxic and odorless silicone rubber that may be applied directly to the skin. The advantage of Ply-O-Life over Alginate is that polyester resin and berglass may then be cast directly into the mold. No separator is needed. Ply-O-Life also adheres to itself. Unless there are extreme undercuts involved, it will not tear when positive cast is being removed, and is therefore reusable. To make the mold tear-proof, apply the rst layer of Ply-O-Life and let dry. Embed berglass screening or wire cloth on top of this layer and sandwich this with a fresh layer. -Besides resin and berglass, one may cast wax, latex, plaster, and gelatin in the mold. When casting a face, coat facial hair with petroleum jelly. Working time 7 minutes. Sets up in 11 minutes. -Molding one average size head requires 3 1/2 lbs.

Plaster is generally used to make molds although sometimes a exible or an indestructable mold is used such as RTV Rubber, Two Part Silicone, Epoxycal or Fiberglass. It is most important that the correct plaster is used for the specic job you are doing. Basically, White Hydrocal is used to make the positive mold because it is most accurate and Ultracal is used to make the negative mold because it can withstand curing at high temperatures. It may also be necessary to increase the strength of your mold. You can do this by mixing Acryl 60 (Acrylic Latex Cement Hardener) in place of water when mixing up the Ultracal. In most cases, the negative molds must withstand multiple bakings and you dont want them to crack. Learn to use Acryl 60. Tech notes available. Many artists reinforce their molds with loose weave burlap. The burlap costs less and weighs less than the cement, so it is an economical technique. Due to the fact that any plaster weighs a lot, you may want to purchase it locally if available.

Sculpting & Duplicating

Sculpting & Molding Clay


Let us rst point out that it is easier to cast a head rather than sculpt it from scratch. There is only one case that I know of where a sculpted head was required and that was the original Terminator. The late Stan Winston thought the roughness of the sculpt would enhance the look as Arnold turned into a Cyborg. Once a gypsum face cast is made, modeling clay is added to achieve the sculpture. More accurate face appliances can be achieved when developed off the actors life cast. If you want to create the creatures you design, it is very important to learn proper sculpting techniques. As a matter of fact, sculptors make very nice livings if they are good. A sculptor can work in many industries such as stopanimation, prototype production, and prop building, as well as the prosthetic makeup industry.

Plastic Cap Material


After youve made your life cast and have sculpted your design on it, it is necessary to coat the sculpture with cap material. It is very thin so it wont lessen your detail. This process will make it possible for you to separate your positive and negative molds.
All Cap Materials are ammable unless otherwise specied and are restricted from air shipping service. Dangerous Goods fees and handling are additional. Safe to ship less than a gallon ORM-D Ground.

Foam Latex Products

A very challenging product to learn to use, but once you understand how to slightly alter the formulation with regard to atmospheric variances, excellent results can be yielded. These systems require a two part mold, an oven to cure the foam in and a gram scale.

GM Latex Stabilizer

Have you ever had gels that were just too fast? Think its the temperature? Maybe the humidity? Try the GM Latex Stabilizer. Especially useful in summer, the GM Latex Stabilizer will give you that extra bit of working time you need. It youre using older Base and are afraid it will gel too fast, this will also help you. Developed to aid the user in getting consistent batches every time. -Heres how it works: Use 2 to 5 grams per 150 gram batch of foam. Add at the beginning of your run.

GM Foam Latex Products


-A superior foam latex system for the professional. The system is based on components that produce a low shrinkage, ultra-soft, microcellular, natural latex foam. This foam can be cast in Ultracal 30 molds, as well as berglass, silicone and metal molds. This foam latex system is sold in one gallon or ve gallon kits. A gallon kit is capable of 24 runs. A run is the amount of chemicals needed to produce a nose glob. Two or three runs are needed for a mask.

GM Micad

MICAD is a foam latex additive that allows whipping to greater volumes while still keeping the cells ne. Very soft foams can be achieved using this additive. Normally, high rise foams tend to get thick, and the cells become large. With this additive, the cells still remain small, and the foam remains pourable. Use 2 to 8 grams MICAD per 150 grams High Grade Latex Base. There will be greater frothing action, and the foam will rise higher in the bowl, producing a softer foam after curing.

GM Components: Foaming Agent Curing Agent Gelling Agent Release Agent

GM Cell Choke is a foam latex additive that produces ner cells, and makes softer foam, even when not whipped to higher volumes. Normally, ner cells in foam make it thick and hard to pour. With GM Cell Choke, the foam still pours normally, so there is less need to worry about trapping air bubbles. The cured foam ends up softer, too. Use 2 to 5 grams GM Cell Choke per 150 grams High Grade Latex Base. Heres how it works: GM Cell Choke causes a different kind of frothing action. The cells will be smaller, and the overall look of the foam is shinier. Since it causes a bit of extra frothing action, take care to not overwhip. You may need to turn the mixers whip speed down a bit earlier to achieve normal height in the bowl. At normal whipping height, the nished foam piece will be softer than usual, and the cells will be ner. Also, since GMCell Choke has a slightly retarding effect on the gel, you may want to add about 30-seconds to your running schedule.

GM Foam Additives GM Ultra Softener


Ultra Softener when added to your foam mix will give you more working time and will strengthen the cells. The resulting foam is creamy and soft. The wrinkle patterns are also improved as a result of this softness. Use up to 15 gms per 150 gm batch.

Safety notes for using a respirator

-When running foam or using large quantities of latex, it is good to use a respirator. -It is important to use a respirator that is approved to protect against the type of chemical you will be using. Latex is an organic vapor so use a respirator designated for that. NIOSH (National Institute of Safety & Health) does not approve any air-purifying respirator for use with isocyanates because they have no smell at low but dangerous levels. If your cartridge wasnt working, you wouldnt be aware of it. Also at high levels, cartridges wouldnt lter out enough. -3M endorses their 8709 Paint Spray Respirator for specied low levels of isocyanates but can do this because that cartridge has not been rated by NIOSH yet. - It has been learned that organic vapor respirators and cartridges will lter out some amount of isocyanates and reduce your exposure. A paint spray pre-lter in front of the organic vapor cartridge gives some additional protection because some of the vapor from a polyurethane foam reaction are in the form of mist that the pre-lter will screen out, thus reducing the load on the cartridge. See our Safety Equipment Section page 181. The only type of respirator approved by NIOSH is the supplied-air kind. These give you excellent protection even in strong vapors because you are breathing contained oxygen. Unfortunately such systems are very expensive. Whenever working with any chemical, limit your exposure. #1 -Work outside where there is the best ventilation. #2 - Wear a fresh, well-tted organic vapor respirator with a paint spray pre-lter. See Respirator Fit Technote #3 - Keep your exposure brief. Have all the materials youll need ready so you can just mix, pour and walk away. -Wear gloves (latex or vinyl) when handling chemicals to avoid skin irritation.

Latex Color Pigments


The pigments listed below are cosmetic grade and are therefore safe for use directly on the skin. When making appliances for the face, these pigments should be used. For puppet heads and props, you can use any liquid tint (ie: Universal Tints) available from a paint store. With these colors virtually any natural skin tone can be simulated. ( Of course a person with little color understanding will nd these pigments a little difcult to use at rst.)

Cosmetic Grade Pigments

-These certied cosmetic grade pigments can be mixed into most water-soluble or oil-soluble substances. For instance, they can be mixed into latex, acrylic mediums, castor oil, gelatin, Karo Syrup, urethanes, silicones, glycerin... Dont just dump the pigment in. A little goes a long way. Sift in gradually until the desired shade is achieved.

Cosmetic Fluid #GP20

The GM Latex Pigment dispersions, designed especially for foam latex, are water-based and very concentrated usually 4 to 6 drops per 150 grams of latex. For darker applications, you can use as many as 50 drops per 150 grams of latex. Since the vehicle is water, you wont over plasticize the foam. No gummy edges.

Prosthetic Makeup

-A harmless, clear, slightly viscous cosmetic uid with some unusual and useful properties. Its a moisturizer, emollient and humectant all of which means it feels great on the skin. -You can use GP-20 to mix with so many cosmetic materials. Dry cosmetic pigments blend into it easily. So do ground-up cake cosmetics. If you add enough color to undiluted GP-20, youll get a base with great opacity that works on skin or latex. Run a test before you go on set with it. In an emergency, when you dont have a certain rubber mask grease color, you can mix it from other cosmetics and GP-20. You can also use it to thin creme foundations so they apply easier (ie: to loosen up Mehron Economy Rubber Mask Grease).

Barrier Creams

Derma Shield

192

Barrier Cream creates an invisible barrier that actually seals the skin and protects the skin against discoloration from pigments and the damage from chemicals. They are non-greasy, non-toxic and can be applied to any area of the skin. Simply wash hands, dry them thoroughly, rub on a generous portion, and allow to set for 4 to 5 minutes. They guard the skin from Acetone, Ammonia, Peroxide and most hazardous chemicals.

Derma Shield Foam forms a molecular bond with the epithelial layer of the skin. The mesh-like bond actually keeps most elements from penetrating where stains, odor retention and damage can occur. The would-be problem causing elements simply stay isolated on the skins surface, where they can be more easily cleaned off when you have completed your task.

PA-X Fomula
-PA-X was developed for professional use in painting latex masks and appliances. It is a 50 - 50 mix of Pros Aide and acrylic paint (ie: Liquidex). Once combined, the PAX formula has a very strong adhesive bond. It is not recommended for direct use on skin because acrylic paint is not an FDA approved pigment for the skin. -If using PA-X formula on the skin, it is recommended that the formula be mixed 5 parts acrylic paint to 4 parts Pros Aide. The reduction of Pros Aide reduces the adhesive and makes it easier to remove from skin. It is the makeup artist's responsibility if this procedure is not a sufcient safeguard. Some makeup artists are using Barrier Cream or Dermashield on the skin before applying PA-X because this forms a protective layer on the skin to shield it from the paint and to make it easier to remove. -When removing a PA-X appliance, never tear the appliance off. Some skin will come off with it. You must soak the edges with remover, the edges will begin to lift up and the appliance will come off easily. Try Tincture of Green Soap (available at your local drug store) and warm water. For stubborn residue, try Detachol or the very popular, economical remover Bond Off by Ben Nye. We have had many inquiries regarding PA-X formula. PA-X is the number one method of painting prosthetic pieces. We are supplying this technote for informational use only. All adhesives and removers are used at your own risk. Todays adhesives are very strong and when misused can be very dangerous. -Because the use of PA-X is so common, there are a number of new products out there to make your life easier. We always want to offer you the latest and greatest products. In addition, there are several new formulas of Pros Aide Adhesive. Check out their benets in regard to the project you are doing. -Experimenting with chemicals is very dangerous. The excessive layering of adhesives (ie: latex, spirit gum and Pros Aide) may be very difcult or virtually impossible to remove because each adhesive may use a different solvent and one adhesive layer may prevent a solvent from reaching a second adhesive layer.

Pros-Aide Cream Adhesive

This is a very strong, non-toxic, waterproof adhesive for use with prosthetic appliances. It is gentle to all skin types, and will not be affected by perspiration or moisture. Requires a specic remover. -This is the material used to create PAX Paint. -Certain skin areas such as the neck, back and chest are more sensitive and must be handled with even more care. Because removal of PROS- AIDE is difcult, avoid the eye area. When removing any latex appliance, never tear the appliance off. Some skin will come off with it. You must soak it with remover as you peel it until it comes off easily. Allow the solvents/remover to loosen the adhesive. Excessive rubbing to loosen adhesive residue will only irritate the skin. Remove the latex appliances & adhesive residue with Ben Nyes Bond-off or Detachol.

Pros-Aide Adhesive The Original

-A thick Pros-Aide adhesive excellent for lling in seams or gaps in appliances and also great for repairs. It does not contain any articial llers to make it thick yet it has the properties of Pros-Aide at heavy viscosity. This adhesive can be easily colored to make thick PAX Paint for use as a ller. It can also be used to create scars or textures in molds or directly on the skin.

GM Water Based Primer

-You may think that PA-X paint sticks well to foam, but anyone who has had an animatronic skin shred before their eyes knows that the paint easily chafes off. There is an answer! GM Foam Water Based Primer allows PA-X paint (or any other paint, for that matter) to adhere to foam like gangbusters. This is not an exaggeration. A thin layer of GM Water Based Primer bonds so securely to the foam that you will be amazed. Any paint, especially PA-X, will stay where you put it.

GM PA-X Remover

Shipping Wt. 2.5 lbs.

-GM Foam PA-X Remover offers the makeup artist an easy, comfortable way to remove appliance makeup. -Heres how it works: -The GM Foam PA-X Remover is applied to the makeup and allowed to stand for a few minutes. It is best to apply the PA-X before appliances are removed. Never use myristate before using the PA-X remover, since myristate creates a barrier to the remover. A hot towel is then used to gently lift off the PA-X makeup. If some PA-X persists, simply repeat process. Never rub harshly with the towel. Works on PA-X paint, Pros-Aide 1 & 2. -As with any cosmetic product, test a small, inconspicuous area for sensitivity and/or allergy. If sensitivity or allergic reaction is produced, discontinue use immediately.

Graftobian RMG Wheels

The F/X Rubber Mask Grease Wheel was developed with the assistance of an Academy Award winning makeup artist. He selected these six colors as the most useful and commonly required shades for creating a wide variety of characters when coating latex or foam latex appliances. The Derma Wheel was developed by the staff of one of the nest makeup training schools in the country - The Makeup Designory - or MUD. The Primary Wheel is as youd expect, White, Black, Red, Yellow and Blue. Ideal for Jokers and Clowns. RMG is ideal for coating latex and foam latex due to its castor oil content which both protects the latex pieces and lends them an oil content similar to your skin. This second benet becomes apparent when the latex coated area and your esh yield similar nishes once coated instead of having the latex area look chalky as would happen if you had used ordinary creme foundation over untreated latex. To treat latex for use with regular creme foundations, see Castor Sealer on page 179.

Respiratory Protection

Respirators come in two basic types, air-purifying and air-supplied. Air-purifying are more common because they are cheaper and dont restrict your mobility, but the lters have short lives and can only deal with low levels of hazardous contaminants in the air. Consequently they should be used only when there is good enough ventilation to keep the contaminants at a low level. There are several other conditions for the proper use of air-purifying respirators. Every one is important to know and comply with. Otherwise putting on a mask is just fooling yourself. 1. The respirator must be tted so that all air breathed comes through the lter. Test your mask by covering the open area of the cartridges with your hands or rubber gloves, etc.; inhale gently and hold your breath for ve to ten seconds. If the facepiece collapses slightly, a proper t has been obtained. If leakage is detected, reposition and/or readjust the straps. Another test is to cover the exhalation valve and exhale. If the facepiece bulges slightly and no air leaks easily between the mask and the face, it ts properly. If not, readjust. 2. Filters or cartridges get used up as they absorb chemicals and dust/mist. Also the absorbing material begins to dissipate the minute you unseal a cartridge or mask package, so always mark the date on the item when you open it. The current guidelines for all chemical cartridges or respirators are to use them no longer then 10 calendar days after opening. Even unused but open, they are useless after 10 days and should be thrown away. If you are working with isocyanates, at low levels, the limit is 5 days. Those are maximum times. If you smell any odor while wearing a mask, there is a leak. Tighten or change the cartridge or respirator. If breathing becomes more difcult, try changing the cartridge. Dont be surprised if you have to change before 10 days are up. Actually a cartridge only provides ltration for about eight hours of cumulative use. Using old, depleted respirators is the most common mistake known. If a cartridge has not been dated or is over-age, throw it away. You might as well wear an old sock. 3. Respirators should be kept clean and disinfected (especially if not always worn by the same person) and stored in a clean place. They should also be inspected and maintained according to the instructions. 4. Always use NIOSH/MSHA approved respirators. As of July 10, 1998, NIOSH/MSHA implemented new regulations thereby making all other respirators sold before that date obsolete. Therefore, we have no replacement cartridges for old respirators and you must buy a new NIOSH approved respirator. 5. If you work in dust or mist as well as fumes, use an appropriate lter in front of the cartridge to keep it from being clogged. Change the lter when breathing is more difcult. Filters are cheaper and prolong the life of the cartridge under those circumstances.
