If you've come here looking for self-help, this is probably the wrong place. This is a tutorial for people who are already ego-tastic enough to want to make more of themselves. Not in the traditional sense, and not even in the cloning sense. You'll see.

This is, alternately, a creepy-doll mask tutorial. Hard to be sure.

Step 1: Make positive of face

First, you're going to need a positive of your face. Your face, but one that won't get burnt if it suddenly touches something that's 500 degrees.

I made mine using my Plaster Face Cast tutorial.

There are other ways to make a mask of your face than that described in this and the next step, but this is the most accurate way, I think.

Great Instructable! I have a similar way of making a mask of my own face...

I used a combination of one positive and one negative plaster cast, then poured in liquid latex rubber to make a "rubber sandwich" and allowed it to dry for 24 hours.
Then, I adhered my beard clippings to the rubber surface with more liquid rubber.
I decided not to paint it because it looks creepier...

I'd like to see this done with foamed latex or gelatin. This is crazy.

In a good way.
I love your write up and sense of humour - you're very funny! Project turned out great too! Steph :)

Sorry, but that opening image... You look like a burns victim.

(And it was *so* creepy seeing you around the office in that thing!)

Oh, that's not me in the opening image actually.

Surprise!
I'm in a room full of clones!

(clatter of footsteps, jingle of keys as I disappear down the stairs in panic!)

well the title did catch me off guard-- but the text kept me amused!

If you added a little shading around the sides (darker flesh tones) the mask will be a bit more realistic as it gives more of an appearance of a three dimensional form. Or go totally zombie.....which could be fun. That would be the option I'd go for and then wear it to school and freak out all my students...
