Fangs For the Memories

Just in time for Halloween, Make has a great weekend project guide on making your own vampire fangs.

The great thing about this project is that you'll learn how to mold three different types of materials! We're going to make a negative mold of your teeth out of alginate, a positive mold out of your teeth out of plastic, and then the fangs are made out of a two part acrylic that you'd use to make fake fingernails!

One of the commenters in the original Make posting mentions making fangs out of Sculpey, which I would say is a very, very bad idea. Sculpey is a wonderful creative medium, but it's definitely not food safe.
