Body casting and hyperrealistic body part creation for cutting-edge exhibition

The video below is a great look at some of the processes invoved in prosthetics creation. It features of some of our 7-week course graduates working on hyperrealistic silicone body part creation for The National Maritime Museum Cornwall’s exhibition, Tattoo: British Tattoo Art Revealed.

Arms, torso, buttocks and thighs were made from purpose body casts for three commissions from incredible tattoo artists working in different traditions: Tihoti Faara Barff in modern Tahitian style, Matt Houston celebrating the sailor tattoo and Aimée Cornwell’s unique form of fantasia.

Well done to our ex-students who worked with Neill Gorton on this project:
Anthony Davies, Morgan Kimber and Sarah Panigada who are graduates of our Makeup FX & Prosthetics Creation course, Kelsey Leigh-Walker who is a Creative & Character Makeup course graduate and well done also to Ellis Moore our Falmouth studio assistant and Magda Kulig of Millennium FX who did some of the finishing work.

A big thank you to our models Sam Brenchley, Peter Collette and Andrew Bennett and thanks to the Maritime Museum for getting us involved!

Find out more about this groundbreaking exhibition which runs until January 7th 2018 here.
