Wicia Rynkiewicz (Poland), Katerina Ginosati (Greece) and Josie Parrish (UK), students of “Prosthetic Make-up Effects” at Arts University Bournemouth, grabbed their friend Miranda (Skopelos/USA) of “Costume Design for Screen” to be their willing subject.
The following photos show Miranda’s ordeal, first being prepped for protection and then cast. After being encased in fast hardening plaster or plaster-like material the cast was opened on a planned ‘shoulder to shoulder line’ and Miranda was released. She says that the actual set time “about 15 minutes” (though she couldn’t check her watch).
Afterwards, the new “negative cast” was used as the mold for a new casting which the prosthetic artists will use as a model for their work.
Wicia and Katerina visited Miranda in Skopelos last summer.
