I love zombies as much as the next girl and can not pass on an opertunety to dress up. Warm bodies is featured soon and Banzaicon is around the bend. I want to make a torn jaw, exposed teeth mask.
The idea is to make this in two stages, the torn flesh I will make on application day, but the exposed teeth I can make now (saving time on application day)
First up, teeth, which are made from fake nails and cut into shape.
Precut and aligned
Next step - latex. Here I have stippled liquid latex (69 kr at Standard, like this one) over the area I want my mask to cover (sorry for bad quality mobile photos, best I had at the moment)
And layer up with toilet paper and cover it with latex again. Let it dry.
Same with upper jaw
Adding teet, which are glued on with spirit gum (also known as mastix)
Gums. If you look closely on this picture you will see that i have added more texture above and between the teeth, creating gums and securing the teeth.
I used thick acryllic paint, which gives a a wet look and is cheap. Red and brown are mixed here.
And darker brown around the edges.
Full front. An ekstra nail is added to the chin as to create the effect of exposed jaw bone, buildt up with extra tissue around the edges.
Take it off and I have a reusable mask. And it is easier to finish detailing it.
A little more detailing, painting under and between the teeth. And making some brown strikes on the teeth itself.
This is all for now. When the time comes that I will wear it I will add more fake blood, but it is easier to store when it is dry and clean like now. To apply it later I will use more latex or spirit gum. It is important that the area around the mouth is attached thoroughly. The edges however will be covered with more fake skin - but more on that in my next tutorial.
