From horrendous facial injuries too evil witches and creature of the night, prosthetics are used to change the performers appearence to help aid their performance.
A good appliance makeup should allow the actor to express his or hers emotions through it, otherwise they may as well wear a simple rubber mask.
Various materials can be used in the creaton of prosthetics, most appliances tend to be from latex, gelatine or silicone. However these materials come in various forms such as foam latex which can help reduce the weight and aid the performers abiltiy to act and transfer their performance through the material.
The process always begins with a life cast of the actor. the makeup is then sculpted and through various complicated moulding procedures the appliance is eventually cast from a suitable medium.
