Synthetic Skin in Animatronics & Puppetry

About the project

For my graduate thesis at NIDA I worked on a research project looking into the properties of silicone and other materials used in creating believable moving skin for puppets. My research covered areas as wide ranging as human reconstructive prosthetics, foam latex creature suits and silicone appliances used in special effects makeup. The core theory was based around the idea of learning from real anatomy to recreate a convincing moving skin with the appearance of a real muscle and fat structure under the skin surface.
