The badger mask is made from latex with airbrushed acrylic paint finish covered by lacquer.
A zipper is fitted in the back to make the mask easier to put on, there is no flap to guard your hair though, so one must be careful to not catch one's hair in the zip !
One breathes through the two nostrils in the badger's snout, and there is also a small hole cut into the roof of the badgers mouth to breathe through....... The back of the badger's mouth is sealed shut.
The mask was originally meant to fit my huge head (64cms circumference above the eyes), it has however turned out smaller then intended so would be more suited to possibly a 56-60 cm head.
I CANNOT guarantee that the badger mouth can be moved by the wearer, as this is not a made to measure mask. Additional padding may need to be inserted in the mask, or alternatively one could glue the mouth shut.
The price of the badger mask includes a brand new polystyrene mannequin head , on which to store the mask, so it doesn't lose it's shape.
The 'furry' bits of the mask are finished in matte, with the teeth and gums and the nose are gloss finish.
This mask is fragile and will not appreciate strong detergents or cleaners, hot water, oil etc. To remove sweat after use it should be lightly sponged down, with a mild cleaner like washing up liquid. Not cleaning it after use could lead to rapid deterioration.
When not in use the mask (after cleaning) should be covered with talc, inside and out, and stored on the head in a dark cool place.
There will be no more full head masks of this badger made, as one of the two moulds that make it broke.............
