I'm currently in school learning to do special effects makeup, and we just learned to make wearable dentures and prop teeth.  It's probably my favorite thing we've learned so far.  I sculpted two different sets and am also working on some caps that will be more subtle than the full dentures.  Anyway, for my first set of teeth, I made some that are based on lynx/bobcat teeth.

First I sculpted the lynx teeth in Chavant Plasteline modeling clay over a plaster cast of my real teeth:

Then when I was almost done with the painstaking sculpting (cats have freaking tiny little chicklet teeth) and just about ready to make my mold, I dropped the teeth on the floor and had to spend another whole day fixing them.  I almost cried (I think my mournful wailing scared my roommate XD).

Anyway, once they were sculpted I glued my clay-covered plaster teeth into the bottom of a plastic deli container and poured in silicone to make the mold.  After drying for 24 hours, the mold was ready to use, and I started casting my teeth in dental acrylic.

I made a whole bunch of sets then chose the best ones to finish.  To finish them, the edges get dremeled and sanded smooth, then they're sanded with 600 grit sandpaper, buffed on a machine, and glazed with dental acrylic stain.

This picture shows what they look like before and after the finishing process:

And, ready to wear!

Rawr!  >^_^<


Thanks for looking!

that's so awesomely grotesque! So long as you don't have cat food breath, it's all good! They look phenomenal.

Wow, that is AMAZING!  I would have cried, too, after all that work.  But the end result is fantastic!
