Advice on ear prosthetics
I'm about to take the plunge into prosthetics and make some ears. None of the courses on SWS seem to have any particular focus on ears, and I'm a bit worried about all the complex ear shapes and undercuts. This ear in particular is probably going to be a fairly fragile sculpt, since it's thin and will project out quite a bit.
Does anyone have advice on:
- Sculpting and handling a fragile prosthetic shape (should I use a very hard clay?)
- Flashing and blending on ears (human ears are such a weird shape... scratch that, all ears are a weird shape)
- Am I likely to have any problems getting it to stay on my own ears, since it's long and sticks out?
Don't ask me how I'm going to dematerialize my earlobes, that's a problem for Future Me...
