Lifecasting Tutorial: How To Make a Silicone Mold of a Kid's Face with Body Double

274 836 views | 2 Jan. 2008

In this lifecasting

In this lifecasting tutorial video, we demondtrate making a silicone rubber mold of a child's face using Smooth-On's Body Double silicone rubber. Body Double silicone rubbercan be used to make a mold of a face, hand, arm, leg, torso, or any other body part.

Body Double "Standard Set" and Body Double "Fast Set" are long lasting skin safe lifecasting silicone rubbers that can be applied directly to the skin to make molds of the face, hands and other body parts.

The rubber cures quickly and will reproduce perfect detail from any original model - far better detail than any alginate.

Can you use a silicone swim cap when using body double?

Min L

is there a place where u can get it especially done??


@mysterymelody Applying the rubber is fairly fast, and the mold is lightweight. Some models even tell us that it is very meditative and relaxing!


Can you use this stuff and the same procedure ono making a leg to foot??

lol i know, maybe its for having a memery for when he grows up or something. or maybe is for a mask


The part when she wraps the face up make him look like a mummy O.o

Anchal Bhagal

that was just amazing

Red Vynil

Geez!! They did it SO much quicker and easier on "Mission: Impossible" 45 years ago!!

Md Jakir Hossain

how much liquid life casting silicone rubber is needed to make a full body(head to leg) shape/mold ?

Can this be poured? I need to make a copy of my ears. Yes I'll have ear plugs in.


this is super weird 


We have a link on our website - "Moldmakers Exchange" which has a directory of moldmakers who may be able to help you.


what kid is that lucky?!

Where can I purchase this?

Body Double Release Cream looks like a petroleum jelly or vaseline.


What is the recommended amount for a "full" arm cast? (Finger tips to shoulders)


@leostyle7771 Generally the eyes are sculpted open in the final casting. This can be done by pouring melted wax or clay into the Body Double mold instead of the resin. The wax or clay casting can then be re-sculpted and re-molded.

Whitewolf w

For how many minutes long should the model keep his eyes closed in total?

Md Jakir Hossain

is it tearable ?


If I wanted to use this to make a mold to work off of for prosthetics would I be able to use plaster of paris to fill the mold? Is it possible to do more of the head, into the hairline if a skull cap was used??

brain drain

As a novice can you tell me the exact names of what to buy at the store? I got confused lol.

comedy hub

from where can we get silicon rubber and cream


He is a mommy!??

Mary Grace Villasenor


Kayiff Calamaya

Ooh, I hope my model doesn't become claustrophobic (Surprisingly, this happens during these kinds of situations) I really want to try this!

Blkeclipse L

would it be alright to pour a gypsum cement like ultra 30 plaster into something like this?


what if u wanted to add eyes? how will i do that?


Not to our knowledge. Check out Amazon or Dick Blick. Our products are also sold there.


@MrEJR26 You could use our Rebound 25 silicone for non-lifecasting applications.

Dustin V

What proportion did you mix the bronze powder and resin for this piece?


Wow that child was very well behaved and patient that would of made me unpatient.


Can I buy a similar product at Walmart or Target?

Jayjay Flores

i'm watching this on my tv with surround (through HDMI) and i was scared that my mom would think it was porn because of the intro music xDDDD


@Tom1988ism This can be used as a memento to save for years, or give to a relative. Lifecastings are used in many different sculptural and memorial applications.

Chikwn Be forever that bish



@SANCxFREAK Communication is key in keeping your model comfortable.

A little overthought and expensive method for Christmas ornaments. But, I guess it's the perfect way if you got a lots of cash, have days to experiment and wanna offend people.

this is something i dont get but i have a hydrocal mold set to go of a head i plan to turn into a mask. My problem is im not entirely sure how much Platsil gel 10 i'll need to pour into the mold which im guessing like maybe 4lbs???(Maybe 6 because i have to fill in my nose and some deep scars on the left side of the face and ears as well as a thick enough skin layer to wear) so thats 62 oz of both A+B platsil right? How much deadener would i need to pour into that? Or how would i figure that out?

Is there a reason why you had to use silicone as both the cast and the mold or would it be possible to use latex for one and silicone for the other?

Alex C

WHY DIDNT I FIND YOUR CHANNEL SOONER!? I started my silicone venture around 4 months ago and didn't come across many videos at all but ended up here from epoxy curing videos!? Can you please tell me more about releasing? Currently using stoner from Barnes but am losing 20%(ish) of molds within a week of casting them from the silicone bonding... This has been a really expensive hobby so far...

Is there any way to make such a hand hollow? Just like some glove? actually i am looking for a realistic skin glove for my arduino robotic arm? can you please make a video on how to make silicone hand gloves (which look really like hands) pls ?
Thank you

Paul Colbourne

Unbelievable realism. The thing that's really freaking me out is that the fake hand looks EXACTLY like my own hand in every way.

Zach P

Out of curiosity how heavy is the silicone like how much does the cast weigh, also can the silicone come in a greyish white?

troy mccombs

How hard would it be to add hair to the back of hand?


Omg, that's so insane! Holy crap that's awesome

Miauig Humor

It looks wet use some mat lacker over it or something

Why didn't you just cut a hand for the star?


It looks like he has "the blob" on his hand.  Maybe you can do the blob effect in a later video that would be neat.

Brendan Silverio

Eu amei o seu vídeo. Sabe me dizer se consigo encontrar esses materiais no Brasil? Qual o tipo de silicone que se usa para fazer a mão? Obrigado!

صدقه جاريه لله

Can u show us from the scratch step by step pls.

betty munyui

hey, you are so talented..

Itana Fernandes

Hi Freakmo, wich kind of ink do you use to paint your silicone prothesis with airbrush aerography?


Also, do you think it would be helpful to cast using alginate, then pour the positive using plaster, and then make a cast of the plaster using silicone with a plaster mother mould for a long-term mould? Or would it be better to pour the positive in silicone and make a two part mould from plaster? Or any other suggestions? I know that theres a lot of potential for loss of detail by having to cast from negative to positive to negative but I wondered if it might be a good bet for making one using alginate that can also be used more than once :)

Altaïr Ibn-LaʼAhad

why this is so realistic while actual prosthesis sucks?

Holy.... You handel it girl

Thomas Van de Velde

Pure alcohol really helps with the removal process.Just poor some in the cast and the hand slides out easily.


You can not breath the fumes when messing with silicone. It's no joke and some of those chemicals can stop your heart from beating just smelling fumes. Silicone of any time is very deadly while making and mixing the contents.

Tyrie Aspinall

Also, is there a problem using Platsil gel-10 with deadener in an alginate cast?

NytemareFX Studio

where do you get the silicone for the actual hand?


Mam m just having Tatto on my hand n I want to crack my interview of airline so can u inform me how could I cover my Tatto it’s possible if I will use duplicate skin

Rowan Kevan

Omg just love it to watching you .Oh gosh its so hard .I need to make a model realistic hands but I never done it.Can you tell me what I need exactly for it to get a really nice detailed hands without bubbles.Please please


I like your jop abut the hand do use the same silicone rubber or ?im your brother emad from iraq


...does anyone else have the urge to bite it.

Joshua Driscoll

do you think this could be tattooed?

magic myth2

what kind of materiaal can you use if you want to make something that is abit more stitt or strong usable for stopmotion also sillicon or something else


Just a tip when releaaing the mold feom the hand, use the compressed air in the mold and itll pop right off.


My name is Yoshikage Kira. I'm 33 years old. My house is in the northeast section of Morioh, where all the villas are, and I am not married. I work as an employee for the Kame Yu department stores, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don't smoke, but I occasionally drink. I'm in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get eight hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of warm milk and doing about twenty minutes of stretches before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning. I was told there were no issues at my last check-up. I'm trying to explain that I'm a person who wishes to live a very quiet life. I take care not to trouble myself with any enemies, like winning and losing, that would cause me to lose sleep at night. That is how I deal with society, and I know that is what brings me happiness. Although, if I were to fight I wouldn't lose to anyone.

It's so fascinating to watch I'd love to do a hand but to practice nails I'm not sure if to buy one or make one but I need cheaper option any ideas of suggestions for me please xxxx ❤️

Eve Lewis

oh yeah its JUST FOR MY TREE TOPPER nothing special


What kind of respirator do you use? There's so many types out there for different things, and I'm not quite sure which I should get...

Is the final cast material heavy? I wanted to make a silicone cast of mipha's head fin/tale from Zelda botw piece but have no idea where to start. I was thinking of making a clay version of it first, cut it into a few sections and make a mold of them and cut them out in half if needed. I originally would like a solid piece but fear it would be too heavy and expensive so I planned on creating a hollow cast and filling it with filling if it doesn't properly hold the shape being how big it'll be and piecing it all together with an adhesive. This will be my first time using silicone to cast. But I have experience with creating basic molds and plaster/resin casts for tile and gem like object of 1 surface and one back but not a full 3d mold and cast. I'd greatly appreciate your opinions and advice.


just a tip: use a silicone thickener for this type of brush on mold

This looks frigging amazing!

Yami Perez

Hi! I want to make my own hand and i would like to know. How much measure of silicone do I need to use. Can you help me. I'm trying to find the products in USA


Hi, this is a great video for learning purposes. I'm just wondering how much overall of the Barnes Pinkysil Silicone did you use to cover the hand? Half a kilogram perhaps? I'm looking to purchase some myself and I'd like to know how much I would need as I don't want to run out of it half way through the process! Thanks

I’m planning to do something similar soon but my mold is made of alginate. I know I don’t need a release agent with alginate but do you have any other suggestions? Also I didn’t see you degas the silicone before pouring it in your mold. Were you able to avoid all bubbles just by pouring a thin stream? I don’t have a way to degas my silicone so I’m hoping I can get a nice casting like yours just by pouring in a thin stream.


Hi! Did you used a separator for Silicone and silicone-mold?
