Foam Latex Zombie 3 by thefxfox Foam Latex Zombie 3 by thefxfox
My third foam latex zombi application for the evening with my new favorite nasty stuff; faux pus. Again a quick build due to the nature of running 11 people through fx in 7 hours. Build and color time 60 minutes

Try silicon rubber from Smooth on, its much better then latex. Dragon Skin FXPro is amazing and cures in 40 minutes. I highly recommend it.

Could one cast the pig using this stuff? I've found the stuff for sale 2x 1 lb bottles to mix together....Have you any Idea how far that would go, say with making the pig?

Can one mix it with acrylic paint (like latex) and airbrush it onto the prosthetic???

It's very tempting, as the making of these prosthetics with latex takes ages, stuff won't dry, so one blasts it with a fan heater...

The two pound kit should be enough and then some. But I would figure out how much the mold holds and double check before pouring. You need to use silicon pigments to color the silicon before you cast it as you are mixing it. A little pigment goes a very long way and gives you very realistic looking skin. You can air brush silicon paints to do further coloration.

Thank you! :) I'm keeping your posts, and advice and will try out silicon in the near future...

At the minute I have several jars of latex I'd better use up, and find myself short of money :(, the silicon isn't cheap! :fear:

Epic! Where do you get your latex from? I have been looking everywhere for it.

I normally dont use latex at all and this is foam latex, very different then the cheap stuff you get at the stores. This application was a prebuilt foam latex piece from whoochie. It was purchased by the director from an Fx store in LA called Cinema Secrets
