Help: Mask wanted!

Hello and once again welcome to my mask making shop. Now i'm in the mood to create masks this day, but i don't know what mask to make this time. The images from 1 and 2 are the comparisons of a spring trap mask i made a few months back, but unfortunately it hadn't been too well thought out since it's a slant instead of a bulk of the mouth. That being noted i was thinking either i can redo Springtrap's mask or try out other masks. Remember, this is all on opinions so just let me know what you think and i'll try to make a mask that anyone would be interested in seeing as an instructable. Thank you for your time and have a grand day of creativity!

Good Paintball Mask?

I have a cheap jt paintball mask that came in a kit with a cheap pump gun I got a while ago.  The mask is just short of 1/8" thick and made of bendable plastic.  It offers protection from paintballs at 200fps but I am not sure about higher velocity guns.  It can only protect against up to 300 fps. So could I use it for battles with semi auto guns like viewloaders, tipman 98s and so on (beginner/intermediate guns)? or will I have to purchase a new one. Note: I have long since lost the manual for it.

Custom Latex Masks Made

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. -------update------ 19-09-2012 if your intrested in having a mask made pop me an email 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.

After you choose this, you can go to my Etsy account and place an order (  I will then make your mask and send it to you as quick as I can.

How to make a DeathEater Mask?

So I'm a crazy HP fanatic ... and I thought it would be hilarious to go to the booklaunch as a Deatheater, seeing as I'm only about five feet tall.I was just wondering how to make the mask though? It would be amazing if I could get something to eventually end up looking something like this:'ve never made masks before, but I'm thinking my gameplan would be something like this - make a plaster mask, try to over some clay on top so I can add some texture/relief stuff on, paint over with some metallic paint, etc. I'm not sure if this is the best way to go about it, since I want to be able to wear this after. I'm also not sure what type of clay would go best, or even if clay would stick to plaster. And I'm not even sure how to attach this whole contraption onto my face.I do want to retain as much of a rigid, somewhat 'metallic' look, if possible.Suggestions would be much appreciated!

So, can anyone help me get started with tips/advice/links? ... I am decent at soldering and my friend who will be helping is very good at it... Can i use an existing chip to do this.. such as a chip from a photon or led toys..? or are there good pre-programmed or programmable microcontrollers that can fit in my pocket? I have 6 months to complete this.. and I will make an instructable for it as well. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!

What is a good material for a rorschach mask that i can see out of?

Hi, I soon am going to make a proper animated rorschach mask, ive aquired all the materials i need except for one thing, the actual mask components. I dont know what material i should make the mask from, being as i am using thermochromic pigment suspended in acrylic base, im not sure if spandex will work, also, i have no idea how clearly i can see through any of these materials. What good would a working rorschach mask be if i cant see out of it. The way my design will work is numerous heat pads linked to a controller, the heat pads will heat up to around 40 degrees , just warm enough to get the pigment to change from black to clear, and essentially thats how ill change the mask pattern. ill have 2 masks in a sense, one is a thick balaclava on which the heat pads and wires will cover, so they arent right on my face, then a secondary mask will go over that, though when done they will be attached together.  the secondary mask will be white and will have the pigment on it, it doesnt need to be particularly flexible as the mask will retain most of its shape anyway when not being worn, i just need to be able to see out of it, my design wil lalso include a breathing and cooling system so i dont activate the pigment with my breath, or fill the mask with sweat as it cant be washed. what material should i use?

I am wondering if there is a way to make a mask with some sort of built in 'fog machine' of sorts. A way that I can breath out a fog like vapor from the mouth of the mask that is safe to breath in. I intend on making the mouth of the mask able to open and close by attaching the bottom jaw to my jaw to allow it to open when my mouth opens and close when it closes. I already fairly certain that dry-ice is entirely out of the equation as breathing in the vapors produced can be harmful.
