This course is designed for everyone who wants to learn & understand what the Art of prosthetics are.

This short 5 day course will give you all the insights of techniques & processes of how to make a film quality Silicone prosthetic make up.

Shaune will be teaching a class of 10 People (we want to keep it this small as everyone will get the full benefits from this amazing week of watching Shaune at work!)

Even though the course is mostly demonstration based, Shaune will let everyone get involved and help make the prosthetic appliances from running the pieces to painting and applying them onto each other. It’ll give everyone involved a real hands on feel to the course!**

Shaune will be bringing over 25 years experience from the film industry into the Academy, so the quality you’ll see will be second to none!

Day 1:

Shaune will be explaining what he’ll be making that week followed by a lifecast of the performer which we’ll be doing in Silicone.

Once the life cast is out Shaune will explain how we break down the prosthetics into a couple of pieces. Then the sculpting begins...

Day 2:

Finishing the sculpt and floating off the pieces overnight.

Shaune will be explaining why we do things certain ways with different materials. (After all every prosthetic make up is different)

Day 3:

Moulding the Prosthetics in a variety of different materials such as Pro-Gel 10, SG700, Ebalta Putty Systems, Fibreglass resins & the Silicone flat moulding process.

Shaune will also be explaining what type of materials we’ll be casting the pieces out in, and this can be in either Pro-Gel 10, Pro-Bondo transfer pieces or Gelatine pieces.

Day 4:

Shaune will be showing everyone how to run the pieces in Pro Gel 10 with a Baldiez Pro Plastic encapsulates. We will also be using pro Bondo flat scrapes and Gelatine appliances.

**This is where everyone can get involved and run the pieces too**

Pre-painting the appliances and prepping the pieces.

Day 5:

Shaune will be demonstrating how to apply silicone pieces as well as Pro bondo & gelatine. Everyone can apply the pieces they’ve made the day before onto each other to understand how the edges should be blended down.

**Course content may differ slightly and can be adjusted to students needs and their chosen projects.
