life like skin?


Active Member
hey guys so I was just wondering but is there anyway to put like a fake skin over a 1/1 terminator bust to make it more realistic?

Depends on what you mean I guess.

If you want torn up nasty burnt flesh, do a latex build up over the endoskull.

If you want Ahnold with his flesh half ripped off, exposing the endoskull... You'd have to make a copy of the skull to make a core, sculpt on top of that with clay, mold it, run silicone, paint, and transfer that to the finished endoskull... And I am way over simplifying that process.. it's definitely not as easy as just wrapping it in some magic flesh material though sadly!

Silicone, wax and/or latex. Silicone being the most life like, wax being close second but wax lasts a lot longer than silicone and latex lasts shorter than silicone...

Yep, silicone. Smooth-on carries it, plus a retarding agent that makes it even more flesh-like.
