I believe this is the right place to post this...

I made a mold of my face using plaster bandages, then using crayola´s model magic, I started to cover the mask and giving it the desired shape.
I had an old pair of broken eye glasses, so I used the lenses to make the eyes.

I think it looks pretty good compared to those hiddeous ANBU masks people sell on the internet.

What do you guys think? feedback would be appreciated. Smiley

I reeeally like this. and just a few questions- how thick did you layer the bandages? and did the plaster become uncomfortably hot?

Very nice mask!  Are you planning to wear it, or just mount it on the wall, etc.?

I've also done a bunch of those plaster-impregnated gauze strip masks with my son and nephews (...they don't get hot as mentioned, but there are a few caveats to be aware of so if anyone's interested in a lesson on making them check this page at my site:
http://www.glassattic.com/polymer/heads_masks.htm
... under the "Masks" category, click on Make Your Own Forms... )

Did you know you could also cover the plaster mask, or the air-dry clay layer for that matter, with polymer clay?  That's one of the ways that large masks are made by polymer clayers (see link above for loads of polymer masks --from large like this one, all the way down to very small to use as pendants).  When using polymer clay as the outer layer (or even the whole mask), lots of neat effects are possible and all kinds of embellishments, etc.
