Current progress on Carmen’s chest piece! I decided I wanted to cast one out of pink Ecoflex so that I won’t have to worry about any modesty issues. This will also let me like… put the boobs wherever I want in relation to the rest of my torso, because hers sit up really high as if they’re supported by a corset even though her corset is extremely open in the front. So I’ll end up wearing two corsets for this – one for actual support and waist cinching, then the chest piece, then the costume corset on the outside.
My headcast mold also covers my collarbone and shoulders so it was a really good shape to start with. I love Monster Clay because you can melt it in the oven and pour it into a mold, then tweak the shape as it cools. It saved me a lot of work on having to sculpt my neck and collarbones! I still have a lot of finishing to do but I think this is the general shape I want.
