Custom Fangs, Caps and special Teeth Fx

I am a Prosthetic and Makeup Effects Artist, but I started on my creative road back in the good ol’ 80’s playing classic table top RPG’s and painting Miniatures. This led onto Live Role Playing (LRP or LARP) where I began making masks and props during which time I also made safe weaponry for LRP combat, and in turn developed the original design for the Latex & Foam Weapon, now used extensively throughout the hobby (as well as the safe combat arrow system).

Since then I have worked extensively in Prosthetic Makeup Effects for Film & Tv, Projects as diverse as The Lord of the Rings Trilogy to Mad Max Fury Road and many points in between. I also developed the 1st Prosthetic Silicone material used reliably in the industry which was originally used for Gimli the Dwarf’s Prosthetics (actor John Rhys Davies) in The Two Towers and the Return of the King.

One of the things I particularly enjoy making are Fangs and other Teeth Effects, I have over the years made hundreds of sets that have been sent all over the world. I used to attend a range of events and conventions from Gothic & Vampire to Body Piercing & Tattoo taking teeth casts of customers and then on returning to my studio spend many happy hours casting and creating custom Teeth Fx for them all.

For a few years now I have also been teaching Prosthetic Makeup Effects, including Specialist Mould Making techniques and Teeth making (temporary Fangs, Caps & Veneers), to a wide range of students and clients from many parts of the world.
So, now I am returning to my roots a little and offering discerning Etsy Shoppers a chance to purchase my wares… Everything I create is made with great care and attention to detail, and I look forward to making something special for you. Please keep an eye on on my page for the events I will trading at this year taking orders and casting customers teeth.

Frequently asked questions
TeethFx Info'

All the Caps/Fangs I make are crafted to fit your individual teeth precisely (so usually no fixatives or fixing aids are required). They are micro thin and sculpted to be as lifelike and natural as possible (which does mean they are not 'bullet proof' ;) but being made of dental acrylic (the same materials dentists use to make false teeth) they are pretty strong. All teeth Fx orders are colour matched to your own to ensure a realistic integration.

Use, strength, lifetime & care

Any TeethFx can last a lifetime as long as you look after them. It does depend on your bite (how your teeth come together/'mesh') regarding how much (or little) 'spare space' I have to work with when creating your order, & so how delicate the caps may be for chewing purposes (i.e if the backs of them have to be extra thin due to a lack of 'mesh' space)... some people can eat with them in quite easily, others it is more difficult/unlikely without possible cap breakage. Drinking should be no problem. Full care instructions are provided when you receive your order. If you do break them in the 1st 2 weeks of receiving them I will fix them for free, after that there will be a fee to cover repair costs, subject to the level of damage/lost parts.

Delivery Times + Express /'Rushed'

Carriage is free for all regular deliveries, but turnaround time is at the mercy of the mail systems and can take weeks for orders sent outside the UK (sadly beyond my control) but ignoring that, I can usually dispatch you a teeth moulding kit (with full instructions) within 48 hours of receiving your order, and once I receive the teeth impression moulds back from you (made with that kit) it will take me about a week to 10 days to create your order and have it ready to send out. I can express send items via DHL or UPS but this will add £45 to each item sent (either casting kit, final teeth order or both @ £90). This will however usually guarantee delivery within 36 hours in Europe, and 3 - 5 days or so most elsewhere else.

Teeth Moulding Kit

All Teeth Fx I make require a perfect fit to your teeth. If you are unable to visit the UK to have your teeth cast by me, when you make your order I will send you a complete moulding kit with full instructions for you to mould your own teeth and return the moulds ('impressions') to me. The kit will also include a colour guide for you to check which tone of dental acrylic I should use to best suit your natural teeth colour. From the impressions you return I will make plaster casts of your teeth allowing me to make your order to fit you as precisely as possible. IF however you have a local friendly dentist/dental technician, they may be able to make the impressions and plaster casts for you which you can then send to me, saving postage time.

Repeat orders and fixing existing TeethFx

I make and keep master moulds of all customers teeth impressions, this saves time and the need for any further casting kits or impressions to be taken directly from them, so if they require a new order, something different or an existing item fixing I can do that far quicker. If you do break an item, try to keep as many of the broken parts as possible and send all of the teeth order (broken and unbroken parts) back to me so that I can more easily fix them and match all parts up accurately.

Refund request after a client has received a Teeth Moulding Kit ?

Your refund will be reduced by £50.
