Halloween Workshop - Life casting and working with silicone


Saturday 20th October 9:30am - 1:30pm


Learn how to make realistic severed fingers in this half day workshop!

As Halloween is fast approaching, why not learn how to make a creepy prop to add to your costume, decorate your home or simply scare your loved ones with? Always wanted to learn life casting? Then get started with the basics and create something spectacularly spooky at the same time.

This is a hands on (pun intended) workshop and each participant will leave with their own severed fingers, an understanding of life casting and mould making, knowledge and techniques to make their next silicone prop, a voucher to use in store* and a completion certificate. All materials and equipment will be provided.

You will learn:

  • How to use Alja-Safe (a Smooth-on product) to life cast
  • How to mix silicone
  • How to colour silicone to replicate skin
  • Painting a prosthetic/prop

And more!

You will be taking a cast of your own finger. We feel this is the best way to learn, as you get to experience both sides of the life casting process. However, if you do not want to do this, then please get in touch with us, and we will arrange a model for you to cast from.

The workshops are limited to ensure you get attentive support and advice.


All participants must be over 18 to book. If you are under 18 and would like to attend, please get in touch and we will see what we can do.

All equipment and materials will be provided but please bring/wear old clothes as casting can get messy!

Tea and coffee (as well as Halloween themed snacks) will be available.

Only £50. (+ EventBrite booking fee).

* As this workshop is based at 4D modelshop, you will also be able to purchase any additional items. Although all materials and use of equipment are included within the cost, you may want to buy more materials for your next project with your newly learnt skills. Due to this, attendance of the course will also entitle you to a 15% off voucher to use on anything in store that day.

Tickets are non-refundable due to material cost in preparation for the workshop, however if you do need to cancel, get in touch and we will do our best to reschedule your class or book you onto a future workshop. In the very unlikely event that we need to cancel the workshop, full refunds will be issued.
