Looking for quick ways to apply trauma moulage in the field or simulation lab without clunky unrealistic rubber wounds? Suzanne Patterson from MilitaryMoualge.com fame recently sent me some of her TraumaSkin FX™ Silicone Sculpt and Model Gel. Within 5 minutes I had a realistic wound even with my minimal moulage training experience! Suzanne told me she created these gels so that mass casualty or military training exercise medical training educators could quickly create realistic moulage presence “without expensive, bulky or unrealistic prosthetics”. With heavy use by the DoD’s MSTC simulation training programs through the U.S. Army, the TraumaSkin FX product has been very much appreciated. Suzanne also has extensive experience in the movie business, and focuses her more civilian businesses through paintandpowderstore.com.
More about the TraumaFX Product:
This Silicone Sculpt and Model Gel is a simple two part (A and B) platinum silicone paste system that is mixed together in equal amounts by weight or volume to create a thick textured gel. No more messy liquids and dripping containers as this paste-like silicone has the texture of a firm yet soft scar wax that is easily pliable. Once mixed it’s ready to use to sculpt or model into all kinds of 3-D wound effects, scars, or any kind of disfigurements for ultra realistic looking results!
This product is so easy to use that even a beginner artist can create fantastic real-to-the-eye results for all kinds of casualty simulation effects. You don’t need any special tools or equipment to mix and apply this product, and you mix up only what you need so there is no wasting of material. Simply blend equal amounts of Part A and Part B together thoroughly (for about 45 seconds) on a non-porous palette-like surface, and then it’s ready to freehand sculpt on the palette or mold directly on skin into durable wear appliances that bend and flex, and look just like real skin!
