The Bastard Executioner: making boils

Last year MakeupSFX joined Kurt Sutter (creator and writer of TV hit Sons of Anarchy) on the set for the filming of The Bastard Executioner. The series gave us lots of new and interesting prosthetics to create for the characters, especially Kurt Sutter’s character- The Dark Mute.

The offset workshop team had a great time creating popping boils and silicone genitals (!), and also sculpting/casting body parts to send over to Cardiff, the filming location.

The boils took us on a test to get the right constancy, changing the amount of deadener in each boil, to effect how each one popped.
Then it came to filling of the boil, eventually using a liquid mostly of custard to create a gooey centre- yum!
