Custom Latex Masks Made Answered

Picture of


Hi, I am offering my services to custom make and paint any custom latex masks you would like.

Will just cost the materials to make the mold and the first mask.

I will post you your mask, and give you an estimation of how long it will take to complete, making a decent mask takes time so dont expect to have it in a couple of weeks, I have to do this in my spare time and i like to take my time to make the best sculpt i can before i put any plaster on to make a mold.

if your intrested in having a mask made pop me an email chris@chrisfrydesign.com your likely to get a quicker reply via email than commenting on here ;-)

have a look at my instructable on making masks using 2 part molds which should give you some idea of the costs and time scales involved.

---------------------------------

Ok i have been asked a few times can I make masks of actual people, the answer is that I prefer not to, replicating a human face for me is very tricky, having said that, a spitting image style replica shouldnt be too much of an issue.

how long would it take?
the answer is between 1 and a half to 2 months depending on the size and complexity.

How much would it cost?
Hard to say again it depends on the size and complexity but remember you would be paying for a one off mask and your asking because you either dont have the skills to do it or the patients or the time, so if your expecting a mask for £20 (gbp) think again, no one is going to work their ass off producing something which takes a long time to create for a small amount of money, the materials alone are very expensive, please remember this when you email me and I qoute for your mask.

Would Iron Maidens mascot Ed the Head be possible? Won't be needing until Halloween time. Secondly is it possible to make these masks with a moving jaw so that it possible to drink whilst keeping the mask on?

generally you would glue the mask to your face if you wanted to have moving parts.

at the moment I am not taking on comissions I am in the middle of a larger project which has used up all of my work space. I'm building a life size replica of ED-209 from the 1987 film Robocop.

ok a quick update because I have been getting a lot of requests, I do not do realistic masks if you want a mask that looks like a real person your best bet is http://www.spfxmasks.com

also I am not really taking on any new work, how ever if the project is interesting enough I may consider it provided there is not a time limit for the work as this has been problematic with recent commissions and my current work schedule.

I dont make masks for a living so I have a full time job too, if you need a mask with in a time frame I would suggest spfx masks for your needs, they do silicone masks and can turn around a mask in about 8 days, and you can even have real hair.
