Zukoís Scar W.I.P.

Hey everybody. This is my first time sculpting anything with clay. Iíve made other costume components and accessories before using various methods, pepakura, fiberglass, bondo, vacuum forming, et cetera. However, I had never sculpted and cast anything before. I had wanted to do the costume of Prince Zuko from Avatar The Last Airbender, specifically his season 2 costume when he was working in a Tea Shop.

For Dragon*Con this year, I had made a simple prosthetic using liquid latex and tissue. (Photo by Bryan Humpfrey.)


While I was able to remove the piece intact, and it can be used again in the future, I still wanted to try sculpting it. I figure itís a sort of basic piece that would be good to learn sculpting and casting on. My friend has recently started pulling his own sculpted Joker prosthetics in Silicone, so I figured that would be good for this piece. So, I got myself from sulfur free clay, got everything set up, and started sculpting.


Iím aiming for a piece that will end up being somewhere between realistic and cartoon stylized for the burn. I want something almost like Freddy Kruger, melted, scarred skin, stretched over more raw skin/almost muscular tissue.

Fantastic! I love it when Zuko cosplayers actually have prosthetic, or use putty/latex makeup techniques for his scar.

I love the texture and the details put into the clay. I've never cast anything in silicone (only balloon latex) but im sure it will be great.

Oooh, that's lovely. I've tried a little bit of latex/foam prosthetic casting, but I've settled on single-use pieces for both my Zuko scar and my Na'vi nose. I'm looking forward to seeing your final result!
