Severed Hand

Personal Project

Summer 2016

In an effort to gain experience with casting and mold making, I cast my hand and altered to look as though it had been injured in a table saw accident.  The mold was made from Smooth On Alja-Safe and cast with Smooth On Moldstar 20T tinted with Silc Pig. After demolding I used an Xacto blade to cut material away and inserted a kebab skewer into the middle and ring fingers to give these fingers an unnatural and broken look.  GE Silicone II tinted with Silc Pig was added into the cuts to build up fatty tissue (yellow) and muscle (dark red), the same solution diluted with Naphtha and tinted various reds was brushed on for the additional blood.
