Jarrod BMU

Vincent Price as Prof. Jarrod in burn make-up (BMU) from HOUSE OF WAX (1953).

I sculpted the burn make-up on a foam filled latex casting of the bust I made of Vincent Price in 2011. To change the expression, I first cut the mouth of the casting, opened and shifted it to his right and placed a resin copy of my lower teeth in the mouth. Then I folded over his left ear and stuffed his right nostril with clay. I used bondo, a mixture of pros-aide and cab-o-sil (a thickener), to build up the scars and distortions. I am very happy with the way it turned out. The bust has glass eyes and punched human and synthetic hair, cloth clothes and mounted on a wooden base. Made in 2013.
