NEW - Breakaway Concrete

Formulating a compound that looks like one material and behaves like another is extremely complicated and needs very experienced professionals to achieve.  We are delighted to announce that our effects technicians have perfected a mix that allows us to create very realistic looking concrete for blocks or paving, which looks like concrete when it's whole, but also the debris and edges look just like real concrete when it breaks.  Of course, making something that looks like concrete is only useful if it breaks in a safe way.  Our engineers have done it and perfected a material that is safe to handle, produce and give an amazing effect when being broken.  Our Effects Specialist takes a piece for a dry run....   We can now take orders for breakaway concrete blocks or paving.

Prosthetic artist, bodies, heads, limbs 14th June 2014

Ulyana Signature Range of Prosthetics

 

Our very own prosthetic artist Ulyana Staryk has just completed another highly detailed body prosthetic.  It's a little gruesome.... of course, but that's we are called BloodyStuff and not SweetStuff:-)

This prosthetic took around four weeks to complete from the original lifecast and is complete with removable intestines, liver etc., and the silicone skin peels back from the chest to reveal the ribs, it's also been designed to look as if he's still alive, so Ulyana has completed this piece with an internal bladder to allow the chest cavity to be inflated/deflated to simulate breathing.  Highly detailed and painted silicone skin makes this this prosthetic highly detailed for close up work for film.

 

If you require an original lifecast prop, from a hand or leg to a full body or head, contact us and come along for a meeting to discuss your requirements.
