Mouth replacements were sculpted onto masters, then a mould was made of each. The final replacement heads were in resin. These were then airbrushed.

To make the sculpting of different mouth shapes much faster i made a
pinch mould for the basic shape. I could then press out lots of the base shape and sculpt each into a new shape. This kept the basic bulk of the shape correct, eliminating any “boiling” effect on camera between replacements.
