Prop Heads Part IV
Looks like I'm going to have to brush up on my Roman numerals before I'm done with this project. The teeth turned out better than I could have imagined for a first time attempt. The translucent white Sculpy clay baked into a perfect dingy nasty tooth color, probably not their intention, but great for me. I inserted then right into the cured expanding foam and things really started to take shape. I've studied the human skeleton including dentition for a while now and although they are obviously not the real deal, they are 100% better than anything I've seen sold in the stores or on other homemade props (with a few exceptions). So I give myself an A- for the teeth. The Devil's Workshop has the tutorial for the teeth.
I give myself a C for sculpting the face. Don't ask me what I was thinking with the upper lip. Did someone punch her in the face? Well the jacked up teeth are on purpose, but that upper lip has got to go. Luckily I have the Dremel charging to take care of that. I now realize I want a gummy grimace like when a cat hisses and bears it's teeth. Easy enough I figure. A little hot glue to ensure the teeth stay in place and nice tightly drawn lips. I also plan to shave off the lower left jaw as I realize the Bucky skull original I used as a model is most likely male. Anyway, I'm pretty happy with this experiment. Trust me, this project is not being done in planned steps. It is just working itself out as I go.
