Bill and his good friend Nick Kettman of Modulus Props show you how to make brush-on molds and slush casts of their custom sculpted masks!
When a Mythbuster issues you a challenge, you rise to the occasion! Adam Savage needed a pair of visors for his ACES space suit costume for his NYCC 2018 incognito costume. Bill and Britt got to work using their brand new vacuum forming machine.
Bill has put together several Bladerunner blaster kits and decided it was finally time to make his own from scratch. This 3D modeled and printed prop was molded and cast to make a highly detailed, custom replica… with a twist!
Creating a two part silicone mold can be an incredibly useful technique for prop and costume making. In this video Bill goes over the process using a hand cannon prop from Destiny as an example.
We’ve done pewter casting in the past, but we’re really starting to get a lot better at it. Check out our new, improved techniques PLUS some testing with lower heat resistance silicone.
Take a trip down memory lane as Bill shows off some of the first silicone molds he made over 5 years ago. Learn from his mistakes as he critiques those molds and compares them to newer ones he’s made after years of practice.
