Introduction: Pumpkin Patch Pete Mask

Full head wearable latex Halloween mask.

Step 1: General Shape

First rough in the basic general shape of your character. (sculpted using water based clay)

Then begin to block in some of the more prominent features.

Step 3: Refined Details

Then once youve achived the shaped you want, begin to add all of the tiny details and textures.

Step 4: Molding

Make a 2 part plaster mold.

Hugely impressive!!! I so want to get my hands on foam latex Very hard to get in Canada. American co. will not ship cross border some environmental stuff. If you know where I can get it up here let me know, I've made my own out of carpet latex and latex paint boiled down. ( less safe that just shipping it to me lol.) you get my vote tell me what u think of mine, ghost Rider bottom video shows me driving to contest on fire. (that was tricky.) and my other costumes are on the head on a platter video.
