I tried to make a silicone cast of my face today.
The silicone is made specifically for use on human skin,
but it was very thick and I couldn't spread it out without it turning into a lumpy mess.
What am I doing wrong?  Huh
I don't think I was too slow, the stuff was quite thick from the start.

was the silicone intended for making a mold of your face, or for making appliances (theater makeup term for big noses, warts, that sort of thing) to attach to the skin?

Did it come with directions?  I'm thinking a thin layer of silicone with a layer of fabric over it might work.  The lumpiness on the outside wouldn't be a problem if the inside was true to the surface of your face.

I've only ever made plaster face molds, then built on them.
