For the NFTS graduation animation Bird With No Legs, I sculpted hands and shoes for the principal characters from monster clay, then made plaster moulds and wire armatures before casting flexible versions in foam latex. A very smelly and temperamental, but satisfyingly spongey material. I also made a silicone mould of the young boy's head, followed by a resin cast.
