Denise Poole Trent Transformation
(Courtesy of Denis Bastien of
1. TRENT is thinking of getting a new face...
2. TRENT is in "hot water"
3. ... long enough to soften the vinyl...
4. TRENT is "losing his head"...
5. No need for this knob anymore...
6. The "coast" is clear.
7. How about one of Denise Poole's "blank"
8. All packed to go to the UK ( Note: the
TRENT SHOES in 7 colors are a gift for Denise! )
9. I would like my "new man" to be a mixture
of these two...
10 - Trent's head has been transformed into a
"bronze" of our favorite star.
11 - this is Denise's "master" head... which
will be the basis of my "new man".
12 - Hair, eyes, mouth, chin have been
modified to look like my "requested man".
13 - A new mold is made...
14 - Resin, powder, pigment, catalyst
15 - into the mold... tap the sides for 10
minutes to get rid of bubbles... and wait!
16 - this is the resulting cast...
17 - after fixing the surface, the face gets
a few colours...
18 - the neck cavity is prepared for the new
19 - epoxy glued onto the body.
20 - so far... so GREAT!
21 - the new face must be scored
for the add-ons to stick to it.
22 - ... not shaving cream....
23 - then the MILLIPUT is
sculpted to look like facial hair.
24 - more hair added to the
beard and MILLIPUT is used to close the eyes a bit.
25 - another coat of flesh from
head to torso.
26 - the torso being plastic,
the paint will serve as a base for the "chest hair" that will be added
later. The shinny glare will be corrected with a matte coat later on.
27 - the "new man" gets his
first layer of colours... then is left alone for a while as Denise likes to
distance herself from the preliminary results to be able to look at "him"
with a fresh eye and see where the looks can be improved.
28 - basic colours, basic
shapes... the magic will come later!
29 - the eyes are now BLUE, a
little bit more chest hair... details, details...
30 - reshaping the eyes with
paint, a bit of grey in the corner of the eyes, more grey to the hair, dark
fleshtone to the nostrils, "lights" reflection to the eyes... then many
coats of matte sealer.
31 - even though he has been
sealed... Denise cannot stop improving her creation. She adds
tearducts, eyelashes, eye moisture, reflection on the lips, fixes the
eyebrows, and adds some blush.
32 - Denise says the real
challenge is in painting a man's face so that "he" looks good without
looking like he is wearing makeup. She does is PERFECTLY!
33 - "his" first modeling job.
He is wearing one of Denise's GREAT SHIRTS.
34 - and it is time to fly back
to Canada where some new clothes are awaiting him. THANK YOU DENISE! (now I
must think of a name)
