Just persevere and eventually you will master the craft and then discover a thousand uses in your low budget feature for your easy-bake glass. Just don’t be eating it…” Thanks Plazmo! Link.

    There is a lot more instruction on movie and television special effects (“F/X”). and other vendors carry a bunch of good titles on body casting, sculpting maquettes, making fake eyeballs, simulating wounds with makeup, etc.
