That thing is UGLY in the BEST way!! I can only pray for half the talent the people on this site posses. I'm hoping to make some silicone pieces for our haunt this year, time permitting. Great prices Allen...Set the bar high!!

If you have any issues with the silicone or the molding process feel free to contact me or post a question here, I am more than happy to help out. Im also pretty sure that it is not talent that gets me where I need to go. Its determination, lots of it. Silicone masks are not easy things to make. But getting discouraged is not an option, unless you want to buy one from someone else.
You will see the wolf-man again for sale soon as well as a few more designs.

Thanks Allen for being there to always lend a helping hand! I will definitely be in contact. I think the molding process will be where most questions will come from! What source would I be able to find silicone and the paint for it?

I know everything I do requires alot of sweat! (Whether it turns out or not!)
Really nice looking hair work on Wearing wolf, I like that purple eye stuff too.

BITY mold supply is where I started. They have a great silicone called Gel 10, it is great to get used to silicone. Mitch is the owner of BITY mold supply, all around great guy and a fountain of knowledge.
I make my molds from easyflow 60, its a two part plastic that has no smell. Most guys use fiberglass but I like to work in my living room on occasion (Molds go by faster when watching a bigscreen) and with fiberglass that would not be possible. This link is a you tube video that Mitch made about build up silicone masks. Make one, check them out, then make the leap to molding.

Bity is a great place to start.

Nice work Allen. From watching the vid, it looks like this one moves with your face even better than the other ones. Looks great, love the extended chest, definitely adds to it!

the chest was necessary to pull off the shirted wolfman look, Im pretty happy with it. It moves very well, I cant wait to see it with teeth.

have an arm armature for a core
then sculpt the arms
plaster mold
slush a latex skin
insert the core and put A/B foam in the gap
pull and paint
= jacked arms
I would ad a shoulder strap that connects the two so they stay up.
here is a link to an older thread about this

P.S. Im showing how to make arm stilts that may help you with this at my speed seminar.
