    Here is a link to a thread I started that follows my first attempt at mask making. It begins with the completed sculpt, then progresses to the mold, then the mask. Give it a read and you will be on your way. The clay you see was low budget air dry, Michaels carries 10lb. boxes. Try to just use 1 box your first time. Keep it covered in plastic and damp towels while you work on it, as It must not dry out before molding. Just do a small mask to get familiar with the whole process.( I didnt want to to go full-on 2 part mold, full-head mask right from the start.) The tutorial should tell you the rest. have fun!

    Hi there. Thanks for stopping by. I just started sculpting with paper mache for a while, then moved into clay when I felt confident. Not that you can't just start with clay, cuz you can! I even did a scarecrow mask with burlap hot glued and liquid starched to a duct tape form of my head...There's a pic of it in my albums.. You can really make a mask many ways, just find what material is your favorite and have fun. Dont have expectations based on what others are doing...cuz that makes it un-fun, lol. Im now just concentrating on clay sculpts, then making plaster molds with those, then pouring liquid latex into the molds....a pretty traditional method. Hope this helped!

    THanks for the comments I got the cover downtown Louisville for my fridge at a place called Caufields. They have it all year round, they have all kinds of covers and it is only maybe $3.00 or something.

    I had a hunch that it may but I have never used it before so I wanted to be sure before I started making tombstones and stuff with the foam.
