Latex Masks Article - CineMagic Magazine #6

A very thorough "How-To" article from Kirk Brady. Brady takes the reader through the steps of creating a latex mask from start to finish. The process described here in this article is essentially the same process that is still used by most mask makers today. 

A snippet from page 2 that shows Kirk Brady along with a few of his creations as well as a nice copy of a  Bill Nelson Millenian.

  1. Thanks, what a great article. I love the sawhorse mold pouring contraption! (My back says I may need one soon). The Supply Sources also list "Westwood Latex" on Lomitas in Industry, CA.
    That location is now "Laguna Clay", where I pick up all my clay and plaster. Pretty Cool to know that!

  2. Glad you enjoyed the article CF.

    Ya, I'm getting to the point where a I'll be needing a mold pouring aid too. I just made a mold a few days ago that has got to be close to 150lbs. I fear trying to deal with it when it's full of 8 or 9 gallons of latex.
