After last weeks hand cast tutorial the perfect follow up is a face cast tutorial. Again I was very lucky to have Stuart Bray demonstrate the whole process, Stuart has worked on films like Gladiator, The Mummy and Shaun of the Dead, and if you're into special effects I highly recommend you check out his website for some great tutorials!

I know a few people are like "eh? What's this for".....just wait ;) This face cast should be getting used in quite a few future tutorials on both channels.

"I sent a response on your blog, and maybe we need to put out some kind of bulletin as a lot of people didn't seem to watch the vid properly.

"There is a worryingly large amount of people who seem to think people gladly suffocate for this process, but clearly this is not the case.

The whole point is to attend to the nostrils FIRST so they are done and cleat BEFOTE covering the whole face. Then it is simply just breathing normally as you do anyway...that is what those two holes in your nose are for, after all.

If someone cannot breath normally through the nose, then you can work around aslightly open mouth. This is not ideal as it can cause theower lip to pull down, and drooling to occur.

I never, ever use straws as they distort the nostril shape, can become dislodged and if knocked carve grooves into the nasal passage.

Should a nostril ever be covered, simply blow through the nose to clear, or open the mouth (the material is still fluid at this point). Once the alginate sets, it no longer moves and so cannot block anything.

Having done literally thousands of lifecasts, including many actors, I assure you this is safe if you know the materials and can control it. In answer to the many times asked question 'how do you breathe?, the answer is 'through the nostrils'.

I think it is also more disconcerting to watch than to have it done. I know how it feels, as I have had everything cast myself many times over, including full head and body casts!

This is one of the many processes which need to be done well to produce good prosthetics, and like many things, the final result on screen does not reveal the skills and amount of effort required to produce it.
