FLESH LIKE rubber ( SKIN GEL )

Hi Guys.

I was popping around to the silicone rubber suppliers today and was shown some of the new products they have... My main goal was to obtain some RTV for a project i'm working on, at the moment. I asked the rep. if he had anything that might double for foam rubber that has the softness of human flesh and can be painted.

Suddenly he pulled out of a box this pink blob of something, that looked like a sea cucumber in shape. I touched it and it was the softest material I've ever handled... you could easily squeeze it down from 1inch to less that 1mm. It had a dry surface to it but the core was very sticky but didn't leave a residue of any kind on my fingers.

At LAST I've found the material I need to make prosthetics and masks with rather than foam latex which is so costly and hard to work with.

Cheers

Phil :love

Dragon skin from Smooth-on seems to be gaining popularity as an over the head mask making material and they make pigments that allow it to be painted.

I always thought that these statue/bust replica places should use the silicone flesh like material for their sculpts... minatures would look so much cooler with flesh instead of painted plastic.. I know it would be expensive...but hey so are some of these sculpts.

If you are able to post photos, I'd be interested in seeing some shots of this material -- in its normal state and compressed.

Thanks. :)
