This video will show you how to make quick, super easy realistic fangs for cheap ANY they are not made from fake nails. CHECK IT OUT!!!!

while watching the hunger games

I’m trying to form my own headcanons on how I envision each troll - somehow Vriska and Terezi came easiest to me. They’re both fun for me to draw, honestly!!

(Eng.ver) How to make your fake troll teeth

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)

So let’s get started.

Before you try to do something, you will need:

- Polymorphus

- scissors

- a little bit of dye (it can be two kinds: liquid and granulated, but ways of using it are similar).

- Super 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 xD)

- 2 disposable plastic cups (folded into each other, so hot water won’t burna  hole in it) and a disposable plastic cutlery (except forks!).

Please, 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.

Fill 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.

Important: do 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.

Take 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). 

When you get the color you need 

roll 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 want.

While 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 oral cavity.

4)Yeah 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.

5)When you remove it, you’ve got a cast:

As 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.

It turns out in neat basis.

6)Next step: sculpt our teeth!

Again 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 comparison.

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.

Again we try on our jaw with the already dried teeth. It looks not so pretty for now, yep? We need a top piece that is attached to the teeth and would create realistic streaks above.

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.

Roll our morph into a small sausage that will cover our teeth from the upper side.

We 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.

Wait until it dries out the top layer. Carefully remove it and get a separate part.

However, 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 base.

So 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 work.

Your jaw will serve you long and productive, and most importantly - not so expensive!
