Macabre Molding Workshop with Keith Heinz
October 23 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
One event on October 24, 2021 at 2:00 pm
Keith Heinz wants you to pull his finger – right out of his hand!
Come join this ghoulish two-day class and make a piece worthy of any Halloweeny household: make a mold of your very own finger and produce a macabre one-of-a-kind severed finger art piece! Using simple techniques, you will produce an intricate project to take home, as well as produce a finger mold, suitable for multiple casts to keep. Make new iterations of your piece or give people unsettling ice cubes for years to come.
In this two-day workshop Keith Heinz will have you make a one-of-a-kind, perfect-for-Halloween prop: your own finger perfectly recreated in resin, complete with plaster bone! And we do mean YOUR finger – each attendee will make a silicone mold of their own finger; we’ll then use polymer clay to sculpt a bone to be molded and then cast in plaster (a conveniently bone-like material). We’ll learn how to use alcohol inks to approximate skin tones in resin and learn to fill our molds in ways that minimize bubbles and air pockets. On day two, with everything cured and de-molded, we’ll attach the bone to the cast finger, and decorate our nearly completed pieces. Nail polish will be both recommended and available. Finally, we’ll be using a quick-cure resin to add blood to the bone/finger seam and make some chocolate finger pops while we wait for the final cure to finish.
