    Jan 7, 2011, 2:11 AM - Help with Aurra Sing's fingers please :) #1

    Hi guys, I'm dropping in to say howdy to some (soon to be) fellow bounty hunters, and pick up some tips from some prosthetic gurus

    So I've just joined the 501st Redback Garrison and have decided I want to troop as Aurra Sing. I think one of the main difficulties with Aurra is her fingers. I think I have maybe the general gist of how I might achieve them, but I wouldn't be surprised if I'm way off
    I was thinking: Take casts of my hands with alginate and plaster of paris. Build the finger extensions onto the casts with clay. Make a mould of the modified casts, then fill that mould with liquid latex.

    Have I got that right? And is liquid latex the way to go? Thanks guys

    Hi there! You're Mike right? Haha sorry I'm not stalking. I was just like "sister garrison? what?" and then i went sifting through some old redbacks forums to find out what you meant, and found a thread about us being approved at the same time. That's really nice, I like that we have a sister garrison Greetings from Jess and the Redbacks!

    Sounds like you have it sussed! Although if possible I would use foam latex, that way they will bend properly without puckering.

    No I don't have an ID yet unfortunately. It'll take a while for me to gather and assemble everything.
