3 websites with info on how to make bondo transfers

First, I have to apologize for not getting the new blog roll done today.  I would say the devil made me NOT do it, but I suspect you wouldn’t belive me.  I will try to get around to it tomorrow, but I shouldn’t make anymore promises I can’t keep.

Other websites with bondo transfer tutorials
I did want to list a few websites with good info and technique on how to create a bondo transfer. Some of these websites even have information on sculpting the piece as well.

Back Porch FX 

The Effects Lab

The Makeup Artist Handbook

The last one is an excerpt from a book, but it does have the necessary info so I thought I would throw it in for good measure.  I figure, there’s more than one way to skin a cat (or do other things less violent and anti-kitty). It’s best to learn different methods and then see which one works for you.  I learned how to make bondo transfers in school.

Learning from my mistakes…
When I went through the process again for this blog, the first set came out a little gooey. It was because I didn’t make the paste thick enough.  I added more Cab-O-Sil to the mix and the next set worked just fine.  If you have tried a bondo transfer, let me know, I would love to hear from you.

Now I have to figure out how to make a set of horns for a devil makeup I am applying next week (see, I wasn’t lying about the devil thing earlier!). Let’s hope they come out better than the first set of transfers.

Please feel free to leave comments and let me know what you think. If you have a makeup or special fx website, I would love to hear about it.
