In this class you’ll work in teams of three to make a casting of your face.  Each student will take turns being the model and creating the mold.

Two techniques are taught (Alga-Safe and Body Double). At the end of the class you will have a copy of your head similar to those found on SyFy channel’s Face Off.

Teams are formed at the beginning of the class. You’ll need to trust your team member as your life mold is in their hands. So you may want to bring a friend or two to get the best results.

If you tend to be claustrophobic, or allergic to products you may talk to one of the other class members to get a copy of their face. Or, book the class with a 201PARTNER discount (see below).

Got a beard? You may want to trim it to get a smooth casting of your chin.  If you don’t care about a smooth chin, we can still cast it and you won’t have to worry about loosing too many hairs. Or, we can use Smooth-On's Body Double with an aditive to get below your beard to cast your face.
