    Face prosthetics

    Hi.

    I'm gonna try to make some prosthetics for my face for this halloween party i'm going to.
    I'm planing to make a mold out of clay and layer it 7 or 8 times with luiquid-latex. But i want to make the prosthetic more solid since i'm gonna have thorns sticking out of my face. can i fill the prosthetic with silicone?

    Cheesecloth would be the term you're looking for... It's used regularly to support latex appliances.
