Step 2: Making a border

The first step is to make a border around your mask, the reason for this is to make sure your mold has a clean user friendly finish,

Now unfortunately I did not take a picture of this, but I found a good example from another sculptor, and how he does it in the link below.

..... I really dont need to show you any more about this. 

Ps. Make sure to spray your sculptor with a good amount of cooking oil to make sure it doesn't stick, and make sure to get out as many air bubbles from the plaster before poring.

Step 3: Breaking your mold open

Now that you'v finished your 2 parts of your plaster mold on each side, then you are going to have to pry the mold open little by little until it comes open.

Your next step is to simply remove any of the existing sculpture inside, be warned, this can be a heart breaking sight.

Once youv done that you need to go through and fill any small air-pockets that may have formed from the bubbles in the plaster.

How much would you charge to buy a mold? I've tried to sculpt this and I can't come anywhere near close. My son loves batman and it would be a surprise for him. You can contact me at
