In this tutorial we cover the process of molding a full body for an autopsy dummy or similar prop. We posted a similar tutorial back in 2013, but we have since introduced PlatSil Gel-25 and found it to be a much better silicone for large lifecast molds. We did mold our model nude, undraped if you will, but we have blurred it in the interest of youtube standards.
