Re: Making a Quick Mask
- Just happen to see Cat's post on making a quick mask. As another easy alternative you might want to consider would be using the heat activated material WONDERFLEX which comes in 39"x57" sheets ($27.50 per sheet) as available from Dazian www.dazian.com with locations in NJ and CA.
The product is activated with hot water or use a hot air gun and make about any shape required. Takes most any paint/coating or cover with fabric.

How sturdy is that material over time? And if it gets hot again say in
a car trunk does it deform or keep its shape? I had some bad
experiences with Friendly plastic over the years and various heat
sources. (Do they make Friendly plastic anymore?)

- You can buy what is a basic mask form at craft stores, and build over
that with cloth, paper, glitter, paint, etc.... Masks are simple to do-
-done them for years. You can also make your own with newspaper and
glue over a balloon, buidling until done, then let dry--I did this
back in fifth grade for a class project. Done something like this for
my Tuskan head, which is a mask, and on the glasses issue, some people
who wear glasses wear them under masks like this or the stormtrooper
helmets (again, a mask). My son who wears glasses has proven this,
putting our 'heads' on.
