Things You'll Need
Spread your clay over your armature. Here is where we start to shape our mask. Build up the clay alittle thicker than you need it to be, because as the latex cures it tends to shrink a little. Work the clayuntil you have a perfect representation of what you will ultimately want to put on your head. Everydetail needs to be sharp and smooth, as any imperfections will ultimately show up in the final latexcast.
Mix and pour your plaster over the clay and armature. This is a critical step. You need to make surethat you pour enough layers of plaster over the clay, but not enough to accidentally bind the mold tothe armature. Your mold should be an absolute minimum of two inches thick. After the mold hasdried, carefully remove it from the clay and armature. You are now ready to cast the latex.
Take your mold and fill it with latex. Then, rotate the mold to spread the latex all over the mold. Youwill want to fill every corner of the mold evenly, as this will ensure a universal thickness all over themask. Do this until the latex has moved from a full liquid into a more viscous material. Then, wait forit to dry totally. After it has dried, carefully remove the mask from the mold.
