Full body casts
Full bodies refer to casts of whole or nearly whole 3D bodies. These casts are used for statues, full body portraits, architectural features, art installations, exhibitions and in the TV and film industry. Like all my body casts they are suitable for both indoors and out, so they make the most fantastic sculptures for your home or your garden. Mostly I make these for exhibitions and the film industry, where they are used for prosthetic make-up, wounds, body parts, corpses, doubles etc. Most battlefield corpses are lifecasts (they don't need feeding or paying!). Amputees are used in war films, with prosthetic limbs explosively detached. It's all part of movie magic; smoke and mirrors and fair amount of silicone rubber!
Prices depend entirely on the exact brief. The size of the body, the pose, material, finish etc are all critical in calculating an estimate. As a guide:
- One-off full body in one colour fibreglass, ready to be clothed (only the hands and the head are detailed):

I provide lifecasts for film, TV and exhibitions. I can work at my studio or yours and have a team of highly skilled people to assist on larger jobs. I provide a full service from start to finish including finding suitable models.
