This project called for several dozen severed hands. As promotional gift items for The Walking Dead video game, they required the added feature of being able to safely and comfortably hold turkey legs. Just imagine a mob of people during lunch hour feasting with these in hand and you get the idea. Molds were created in which thickened flesh colored silicone was carefully brushed into and allowed to cure. A dense but flexible foam was then poured inside. The hands were trimmed at the seams and finally painted to give them all a graphic novel feel.
