Your Questions

 

I thoroughly enjoyed your website and find it very imformative. I plan on attending Gupton-Jones College to further my education in this field. My one question is, 'When a person is in a horrific accident, how do you implicate restorative art to repair their features?' I guess what I am basically asking is what is the technique. I realize you take classes and all on the subject, but could you explain exactly per say how you restore a nose or lips? This is one of the fascinating parts of the art thats interests me. Thank you.
Please understand that the whole premise of this site has been complete openness about all topics, so,I'm not trying to be secretive, but your question is too broad to answer in this type of forum. The study of restorative art encompasses two or three semesters at mortuary college and includes a presentation of a number of techniques to reconstruct various structures of the body. Doing a nose could involve a different base than an ear and would depend on the type of damage, tissue remaining, etc. I believe that if you think about it, that explanation makes sense since there are several bones involved in the anatomy of the nose, but the ear is virtually all cartilage. Special compounds, some with plaster of paris base, waxes and newer spray compounds all feature in restorative art. Good luck in your studies.
