Thanks for the info! My son and I just started using the Gelatin recipe for 2012 Halloween, we found it on youtube, but we were wondering how we would make a mold. NOW WE KNOW!! Thanks so much for sharing! We are going to have so much fun this year!!!!

If you made it, I'll love it!

This is awesome! Thanks for the tutorial! Have you ever made a full prosthetic gelatin head cast from a live model?
I'm staging a production of Macbeth. I need severed heads for the end when his head is chopped off. I bought a Lifecast kit by Artmolds. My plan is to make a full head cast of the actor to use as a mold, then pour the gelatin into that to make a head in his likeness.
We need to do 16 shows. Do you think the head will hold up for 16 shows?
Also, if you have made a full head cast, what is your technique?
And do you know any additional resources where I can find more info about this technique?
Please & thank you!

I can't wait to have a go at this! I am trying to teach myself FX work at the moment - your instructions are so much clearer!

Final pictures are awesome by the way! I had to do a double take and thought they were images from the actual video haha Smiley
