Best method for skinning gelatin prosthetic?


I've built a leg out of a plastic bone and sfx gelatin for the muscles.  I was thinking of using some kind of silicone rubber for the skin, but I'm also seeing silicone paints out there.  Maybe just a coat of that would work?  

Anyone with experience combining gelatin with other stuff have tips?  

First time on this forum.  I may have to figure it out myself before I get an answer, but maybe I'll get lucky!   


  • Ordered a couple bottles of liquid latex.  We'll see how it goes.

    Liquid latex should do the trick.  Share some photos of your progress! :D
