This is goddamn fantastic! I wanna use this and wear them casually, instead of for a costume.

I'm so glad I found your tutorial. :D Halloween's just around the corner and I  can afford to make this. Yay! Though I'm a bit worried about wearing them since I have a 110% over-bite. Guess I just have to be super careful.

i dont get it! i tried this, and the moment i saw it i asked myself "how the heck does it stay on the top of your mouth?" and i went through this, and i was right, it doesnt just magically stick to the top of my mouth :c why doesnt it? in your pictures it fits perfectly, and when i did the play-doh, it kept sticking to my mouth when i tried to peel it off, and it deformed the teeth causing it not to fit correctly. could somone please help me understand why this isnt workin?

please :iconnidhogg10: help me out :)

like, i followed the instructions as well as i could, but when i tried this it just didnt fit me qite right.
 ps... playdoh taste nasty.... XD

And an evening to boot!

Sorry on the delay however I'm currently back on my usual account; i.e. Nidhogg10 here regardless.
Unfortunately it's a "lost in translation" scenario, the stuff I used is technically also called a modelling clay - essentially it's firmer than what's more well known as play-doh and gives a more accurate negative mold as is required.
Unfortunately I can't do much on the taste part, they both taste kinda funky in all honesty xD

LONG STORY SHORT: MODELLING CLAY LIKE SCULPEY/FIMO OR ANYTHING FIRM will do the trick

You technically could use an alginate but....that's getting a little more pricey as such xD

Hope all's dandy in the meantime!

So I'm having a problem. I can't get the playdough mold deep enough and when I do it sticks to my teeth and ends up in a mess. Any tips?

this is awesome, but does it have to be a hot glue gun? or can I use any type of glue? and also how does the teeth mold stay in the mouth? :3
Shirimitsu's avatar
Jp;sdfjidiup this is a great tutorial, but it's not working b/c the hot glue is melting the wax. how to you fix this...? should i get a better candle or whaaat.???

is the was totally hardened? I'm just guessing that may be the reason, but idk (I just did the melting the wax part tonight, gonna do the hot glue thing tomorrow cuz the gun is at school)
Shirimitsu's avatar
lol, yeah. I even put it in the freezer to try and get it to work. Still melted. I'm at a total losss ;-;

ugh, I'm at a loss too. Mine came out just fine. ^^; perhaps you just bought a lousy brand of plasticine or something?

Wow, such a good tutorial

I paid like fifty bucks for a pair of dental distortions, and then my parents got mad at me and threw them away :/
