Thread: Silicone Prosthetics

    What do you guys think of silicone prosthetics, sometimes it is unnecessary to dedicate to full masks and is better to choose prosthetics. Foam works pretty well, but is lacking in that translucency and reusability. Some silicones have a 20 year shelf life and you can use them over and over again if you treat them right. What do you think?

    I just bought one that is a half mask. I asked the seller if it was reinforced but he told me that it would of messed the movement of the mask up. Is that true? I was just worried it might rip easier since your gluing it to your face and taking it off all the time.

    The adhesive you need to apply silicone prosthetics is pretty expensive, as well as the material its self. Silicone prosthetics dont last much longer thanfoam ones. The thin edges that make them look good also make them fragile. It is not a magical solution is all that im saying, it has many drawbacks.

    I have to agree. I don't think there really one ultimate product. Silicone masks have their drawbacks, prosthetics have drawbacks. If you could buy them without a blending edge but they extended all the way back to the hairline do you think that would be a plus?

    That is the style of silicone half mask that I bought. On the ad the actor had a wig on and it looked like it would help cover up the edges of the mask. I could be wrong but thats what it looked like to me.
