A student project to redesign a film poster with predominantly handmade elements...
so I made a finger. Gattaca is a favourite film of mine, and I wanted the handmade element to reflect the core themes of genetics and identity. 
First, I painted several layers of liquid latex onto a finger to make the mould, which peels off when dry.  Then I created a mixture of glycerine and gelatine, with makeup added to give the colouring. The mixture sets within a few hours, and the mould can be carefully peeled off to leave a finger, complete with identical fingerprint to your own. Then it just needed some makeup, a lovely fake-blood mixture (secret recipe),
and it was photo-shoot ready.
