I see many requests in the russian blogs about fake
teeth or how to do this every day. Also I saw before few not really good
tutorials explaining how to do them using fimoplastic, but it costs too low.
Also my past variant was crafted from fake nails, but it looked not so perfect
and natural as I wanted. Recently I found another way of how to do this. It
seems not expensive and practical to me.
To say briefly - Polymorphus is a plastic, that melts in water at a
temperature that is higher than ~ 65° , also it is similar to clay, perhaps a
little more sticky.
The benefit of this plastic is:
In contrast with polimer clay, after
curing the plastic becomes very light.
While polymorphus hardens you can
easily cut and shape it.
Polymorph dries veeeeeeeery quickly.
It doesn’t stain the mouth while wearing:
you will not need to put anything additional on It, ‘cause mold made from the
shape of your jaw will perfectly fit your teeth.
You can use your polymorphus many
times: it can be shaped again if you place it in a hot water.
It doesn’t break (if you’re not
Equius, of course :D)
let’s get started.
you try to do something, you will need:
little bit of dye (it can be two kinds: liquid and granulated, but ways of
using it are similar).
glue, which has cianoacrylate (it usually is put into small tubes and helps to
glue the material literally forever in 2-3 seconds. As example, my poor fingers
disposable plastic cups (folded into each other, so hot water won’t burna hole in it) and a disposable plastic cutlery
don’t use your real cutlery, if you don’t want to drink/eat the chemicals!
- The most
important thing for us – hot water! You only need to boil your kettle to get the
right temperature, we need 100°C.
the plastic cup with the boiled water, pour in a small amount of polymorph (yes,
that’s right, because the main thing - do not overdo it) and wait. At first
we’ll have stuck together bulbs
but then it turns into a sticky
substance that can be rolled out and shaped.
not hurry to immediately take your polymorph out of the water and touch it: it saves
the temperature of water for some time and you can easily burn yourself.
Therefore mix this substance in the water and took by some disposable device -
in my case it was a plastic knife.
Take out obtained
bulbs with a knife and wait for a short time, then remove the polymorph. It is
important to work quickly and efficiently, just to prepare all the tools, ‘cause
polymorph, as mentioned, dries quickly.
1-2 granules of the desired color and press it onto polymorph, stretching it
and thus put the color over the entire surface. I inadvertently picked up as
much as 4 red granules, so my foundation has turned deep red (well yeah say
hello to Karkat). With less granules jaw turns into natural light pink color
(close to red).
you get the color you need
it so that you have enough amount for
the front end and the inner side. It is important to roll out a thin layer for
foundation, otherwise it stick off from the teeth and will not hold as you
the foundation is still lukewarm and shapeable, put it on your teeth (dry your
teeth by wiping with your fingers or a towel) and form so that the lower part
is in contact with the oral cavity and the front can reach the gums. Do not try
to cover all the teeth, including the back - while wearing your mouth is partly
opened, so that the front half will create the illusion of fangs everywhere you
need them to be. Also you may have troubles If you attach your teeth on the
back sides: you just won’t be able to close your mouth without damaging the
really looks as if chewing gum stuck to the teeth. With this “gum”
you have to wait 1-2 minutes until the morph completely shapes.
you remove it, you’ve got a cast:
you can see in the photo and see by yourself, on the part of the cast, there is
extra on top and inside - we cut them with scissors.
turns out in neat basis.
step: sculpt our teeth!
we pour in a small amount of polymorph, pull and cut off small stripes of a length that we need, with the addition to
the part which will be mounted on the base. In the process, you can safely cut
our morph forming sharpness canine and surface mounting, so it will not move.
Part that will be attached should be thin enough, or it will easily fall off. Do
not forget about the fact that morphs dries quickly. I attach a photo for
It turns into a bunch of canines. On the basis of the right place take a few drops of
glue and keep your finger on tooth in attachment place ~ 3-5 seconds.
we try on our jaw with the already dried teeth. It looks not so pretty for now,
need a top piece that is attached to the teeth and would create realistic
8) During an operation,
do not throw away the remaining pieces from the base of the red morph
(especially if you, like me, poured all at once :B). Throw them in hot water to
the remaining part of the teeth and mix it all. If it’s not enough - take
another pellet and mix up your solid color morphs.
our morph into a small sausage that will cover our teeth from the upper side.
mash this sausage on top and bottom by fingers, a little bit close to our teeth,
and then manually adjust the shape of the device: making streaks in the gaps
between the teeth as shown.
until it dries out the top layer. Carefully remove it and get a separate part.
it will not keep as long as you do not secure it to the jaw! Remove the jaw,
apply glue to the back side of the upper layer and then glue this side to our
again, try it on, and if you like it ( personally I remade this five times
until I got it perfect) leave it to dry for a short time.
Wait until they dry - and that’s the end of our
Your jaw will
serve you long and productive, and most importantly - not so expensive!
