In 2009 I created several fake props for a film. The film required a burned and severed head that was made through an alginate life mold directly from the actress. Once a plaster bust was cast from the alginate mold, the burns were sculpted in using wax. Another mold was then made of the sculpted bust. Finally, rubber was cast into the new mold using a plug to minimize the expense of the rubber. It was then painted, and rooted with hair.
