  • Mask Making

    Dear fellow haunters,

    Iím looking to get into making masks for hobby, to sell on the side for extra cash, and then Iíve made friends with small time haunts so help them out. Iíve never made masks. Never. In my limited research so far Iíve got an idea of what I need. Obviously clay, tools, plaster, paint, and latex or silicon (my preferred choice). What else do I need? YouTube doesnít have as many tutorials as I thought it would. So where can I learn to make masks? Thereís a decent sized liberal arts college in the town I work so Iím gonna take some art classes but I donít believe they do anything specific to haunts. There was one or two classes on horror movies in the theater department a few semesters ago though. Also where do you get your supplies? What clay do you like? Oil or water clay (just learned thereís a difference today)? I need as much information as I can get? Any tutorial videos will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Swamp Monkey

    Hello, I'm not sure if any of this will be of interest you to but I do know that Russ Adams from Escape Design Studios FX is starting up an online mask workshop regarding silicone masks. His class will be online via youtube Live. Also, Casey Love from Casey Love Studios does live streaming classes, as well as Anthony Kosar from Kosart Studios, under his Kosart School. All three of these guys are true artisans and masters of their craft. Hope this info helps and good luck with your mask making endeavors.

      Thank you so much! I greatly appreciate it! Iíll look into them. Live stream classes will be a little difficult because my work Shop is a good distance across the yard but Iíll look and see what they have prerecorded or dvds or anything else. Thank you again!
