The New Dental Distortions are on their way

dd teeth range

The new lineup of Dental Distortions FX Teeth

It’s been a very long wait but we will have the Brand New range of Dental Distortions FX Veneers in stock by the end of next month.

Dental Distortions Veneers are “In our opinion” the best FX Teeth product on the market at the moment. These teeth are thin shell veneers that sit against your actual teeth and use a very clever thermoplastic material to give you a custom fitting.

A new improvement for the teeth this time round is that the veneer itself is actually flexible making the fitting process easier and more comfortable and stopping the veneers from snapping which did happen on rare occasionsdd flex image with the old styles.

These teeth have been a favourite of ours for many years and a product that we have always used ourselves in entertainment that we have done as well as selling them retail and we can’t recommend them highly enough. They are easy to fit, come with great fitting instructions and last for years.

They are perfect for Fancy Dress, LARP as well as TV and Film work.

This new range of Dental Distortions will see some really creepy new styles being released as well as some more familiar styles that you may recognise.

One of the new styles for this year will be “Grimm” (centre row, far right) which will make a great pair of creature teeth for your next creation, Grimm is an Upper and Lower set but that doesn’t mean you have to wear both sets together.

A style returning in name but with a slight design change is the very popular “Pennywise” (bottom left) The original design was sharp and nasty but actually not that accurate to the Pennywise Clown version from the film IT. This time round “Pennywise” looks a lot more like the style worn by Tim Curry and will definitely complete any killer Clown Costume.

We will keep everyone up to date on the progress of getting these back in stock and if anyone has used Dental Distortions FX Teeth in the past we’d love to hear from you and what you thought of them.

Getting Gory with Gorywood

The Gorywood range of Temporary Tattoos from Tinsley Transfers is a range of Wound and Scar tattoo sheets that make it easy for you to create nasty looking wounds really quickly and easily. Each sheet is themed and for the look I was creating I chose the “Human Carving Board” sheet which consisted of lots of cuts and slashes and some bigger ready made words and symbols

Here are some wound tatoos I was planning on using and the FX Veneer teeth I used for the look

The first thing I did was cut out a few of the tattoos that I thought I’d use and I also had some Wired FX Veneer Teeth from Dental Distortions which would finish off the look nicely.

These tattoos are transfers that are applied with water so the next step is simply make sure your skin is clean and free from any oils (I use Isopropyl Alcohol for this) pick where you are going to place the tattoo and then peel off the transparent backing and place the tattoo on sticky side down. The next step is to soak the back of the tattoo with water for approx 30 seconds or so and then slowly peel away the backing to reveal the tattoo underneith

Once all the tattoos were on and looking good I wanted to add a little blood but I didn’t want to use sticky, messy blood so instead I just added a few washes of Alcohol Activated Makeup. Now I know most people use Skin Illustrator palettes but I was on a budget so used a great product by Michael Davy. Once dry the whole thing is water proof so no chance of it coming off until I want to remove it. (removal is easy with Isopropyl Alcohol or Baby Oil)

The finished look with the teeth in

So this is the finished look of this very quick and easy character makeup using only a handful or Temporary Tattoos, some Alcohol Activated makeup and a pair of FX Veneer Teeth. I had great fun doing this and I hope you enjoy seeing it and at some point try it yourself
