Beginners welcome!

Dive into the imaginative world of practical effects with an intro to sculpting, molding and running pieces. Get
a sneak peek at techniques used by film industry makeup effects artists, as these skills can be used to produce
consistent pieces of art to share with your audience, or maybe create the very first stage of a Halloween makeup prosthetic! There can be so many uses for a mold like this!

We start with a quick sculpt of your very own small piece, think 3D fridge magnet or a mini picture frame. Though if sculpting is a bit too intimidating, you can pick from the provided pieces to get to know why they were sculpted that way. Once you have your proud little piece, you will then get to create a mold house around your piece, allowing for silicone rubber to be poured into. This mold will be an impression of all your hard work. A 3D snapshot that will last a long time. After a break to allow for the material to cure, we will clean and prep the mold to then pour in resin. Once that is cured we will then demold to show off the results and get it ready to take home for you to paint however you like!
