Have decided to do a short video pastiche using the terminator make-up as it’s abit pointless just making the damn thing then not using it for anything! Unless a handy fancy dress party shows up of course.  The last one I went to had a 30s theme, so a cyborg might not’ve fit in.  They are time travellers though I guess….

Anyway, I digest…

I’m going to do something similar to the scene in the first film where the terminator fixes himself after the car crash.  The idea I have is that it starts off with a close up of water .  Suddenly a drop of blood falls in and swirls around.  The shot widens til we see a figure standing in front of a bathroom mirror.  He rather ominously picks up a craft knife and does something to his face, then a drill.   The shot then changes to over the shoulder and we see the metal skull etc in the mirror.  He then picks up his gun and departs.

Nice and short and easy.  I had great fun dripping droplets of food colouring into the bathroom sink last night.  Creates some rather nice patterns.

I’ve also made a mold of the sculpture for the make-up pictured in the last post so will be ready to cast it up soon.  I’ve found some aluminium powder in the cupboard which I bought for something else a while back.  I’m going to mix it into the resin to give it a metallic effect instead of painting the piece.  Should give it a more authentic look.

Pics and video soon as they’re ready!
