Hurt Boxes are the brainchild creations of Emmy Nominated SFX artist, Brian Kinney. His amazing work can be seen often in blockbuster movies, such as “The Hunger Games – Mocking Jay”, and popular TV shows such as NCIS, Rizzoli & Isles, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Sons of Anarchy, and many more.
Special makeup effects artists have a growing necessity to be able to create ultra high definition quality small prosthetic appliances quickly on location, and without complicated molding and casting procedures. They also need the capability to make multiples of them at a time, and to be able to cast an appliance using a variety of different materials on hand. They also have the need to keep continuity in their makeup applications by reproducing the exact wound makeup scenario every day, or for a particular scene that requires multiple days at a time to shoot. Brian stepped up and filled these important needs with the creation of his Hurt Box system of platinum silicone “on-the-go” molds, that can be used with all the popular molding materials.
These trauma simulation palettes contain a variety of small wounds on a single silicone mold pad, and are medically correct to real life injuries. The Hurt Box – Post Mortem silicone mold delivers a bonus: both sides of the mold features a total of 13 wound impressions. One side has 10 different impressions that are sculpted to create a variety of realistic looking injuries, including: 2 bony eye sockets, 1 nose deformity, 1 torn cheek-exposing the teeth, 4 ripped flesh wounds, and 2 bite mark style cuts. The other side features 3 autopsy scars that can be combined different ways. With this palette you can create a variety of scenarios that would call for these injuries, and be able to make as many as you need for an application. Once made, some can even be combined together to make different sizes or more complex looking injuries.
Suggested products to use in these molds are TraumaSkin FX™ Prosthetic Transfer and Blending Paste, MM-1288, Paint and Powder Cosmetics RD-407 Mask-Making/Slip Liquid Latex, MM-1033, TraumaSkin FX™ Platinum Silicone Sculpting/Casting Medium, MM-1002, TraumaSkin FX™ Silicone Sculpt and Model Gel, MM-1421, and Mel Products MEL GEL Prosthetic Cream, MM-1473. You can use gelatin, but since most brands produce very soft results, it may not be satisfactory for your needs. We suggest TraumaSkin FX™ 3-D Casualty Simulation Gelatin, MM-1301, which gives the most firm and durable wear results available on the market. For the release agent we suggest Mann Ease Release 200, MM-1313.
IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a professional use palette, as many Pro SFX artists are very familiar with how to prepare and use the above mentioned materials properly, and with the correct release agents for successful appliance molding outcomes. If you don’t know how to use the different SFX materials for casting and molding, or have no prior experience doing so, please do not purchase these palettes as they are not returnable due to end user mistakes or errors that ruin the palettes.
