The very first step in the making of the Seraph silicone prosthetic was sketching where the major rhythms in the design would be placed on the face. After a number of thumbnail sketches a basic layout was selected. This layout was sketched onto a plastic wrapped mannequin head. The plastic wrap was then taped over with clear packing tape so that the position of the design would stay in place when the plastic was cut off of the form. This enabled me to then make a flat pattern by slashing and spreading the draped plastic.
