Ok, so maybe you’ve tried corpsing a bucky skeleton, but now you want to try something different, perhaps something a little grimmer. Well here’s a tutorial that may give you what you’re looking for… That is, if you’re looking for a Charred Corpse tutorial. That’s right, if you want the end result without the flames, check out Don P’s tutorial over at I Make Projects. It may not look like much when you start, but as it progresses it really starts to take a gruesome turn.
Items needed to create this include:
- A skeleton
- A can of expanding foam insulation (“Great Stuff” is one of the many brand names.)
- A tin of liquid latex (I couldn’t find the good paint-on stuff all the prop houses seem to use, so I just used Contact Cement.)
- Flat black spray paint
- Glossy bright red spray paint
- Small amount of acrylic black paint (it’s water based and will clean up with water and soap as long as it’s wet.)
- Small amount of acrylic brown paint
- Small amount of clear gloss finish
- Some old paintbrushes, rubber gloves, and a well-ventiliated area
By the time you’re finished, this thing is just as good, if not better looking than a “standard” corpsed Bucky, and you certainly don’t see these nearly as often!
