What are prosthetics? Prosthetics in the make-up industry refers to the three-dimensional prosthetic  pieces added to a performer to change or enhance their appearance, that are made of silicone or 3D transfer material. The scope varies from the simple creation of a false noses, to fall face prosthetics, like the ones used on Robin Williams in Miss Doubtfire, to the creation of classic Monsters and Aliens seen in films like The THING, KING KONG, and HELLBOY...

Prosthetic Gelatin Recipe4tbsp Glycerin (Can be found in first aid section)4tbsp Knox Unflavored Gelatin...about 4 packages (Can be found near Jell-O)4tbsp WaterOptional:3 drops of food coloring (2 drops of green & 1 drop of yellow for a zombie skin color, OR 2 ½ drops ofred & ½ drop of blue for a blood color)

In a glass bowl, add ingredients starting with glycerine, gelatin, then water. Allow to sit for 20 minutesfor the powdered gelatin to absorb the liquid. Gently stir without mixing in air (popsicle stick preferred).Microwave for 7 seconds on high. Let mixture sit for a moment to prevent it      from boiling over, then

gently stir and repeat microwaving in 7-seconds intervals until all lumps are dissolved. NOTE: Allow tocool slightly in between intervals so it doesn't boil over. Be very careful while heating and gently stirringas to not burn yourself. The mixture will get very hot. You will notice that as the mixture gets increasinglyhotter you will need to let it cool for longer periods between heating intervals. Once all lumps havedissolved pour gelatin into ice cube trays for easy storage. Keep covered and store in refrigerator.Reheat in microwave (in a glass container) when ready for your makeup application. Be sure you test thetemperature before applying it to skin. It will be warm but should never be hot.Enjoy your new prosthetic material!

SO WHATS INVOLVED... There are many ways to approach the creation of prosthetics. The materials used benefit from a very good knowledge of different elements like sculpting, mould making and will also adapt existing compounds to suit their particular purposes. Fine Arts training is enormous help - especially sculpture. As a Prosthetics Make up Effects Artist my task is to imitate in the finest detail imaginable the complexities of the human body. From the curve of the jaw down to the pores of the skin! It is this detail, that determines how realistic the work is going to turn out...
