What type of glue do you use for attaching the hair?

Ah, cool. Are you tinting it to match the skin tones then, as it will be visible through the finer areas of hair?

so I used a burning tool to clean the seam on a mask and it just created a sloppy, sticky mess all around the seam that won't take paint. any suggestions on how to avoid this? or why this happened?
EvanCampbell's avatar
You can wipe it down after with 99% alcohol...that should clean up any mess and if you use pros-aide over it, paint should stick to it. Also using a burning tool on latex like this is best when the seam needs only light amounts. If the seam is pretty thick may be best to just trim with scissors and fill with cabo paste (mixture of cabosil and prosaide)

Wow, thank you for making the tutorial! I don't know if I ever attempt this but it was very informative, I've always wondered how on Earth these things are done. Thank you!

Once again, thank you for the detailed and useful tutorial. The notations on painting are especially useful. Heard a lot about PAX paints but I didn't realize how simple they are! Out of curiosity, and if you have a chance to answer, what type of acrylics do you use? The thicker painting type that comes in tubes, or the thinner craft type that comes in bottles?

for airbrushing would mixing dipping latex ( thinner) with the acrylic paint work ? Or would it plug the gun up ? I use latex and acrylic flexible varnish mixed with acrylic colours when I paint my masks for larping. I need a very strong finish. And I,ve been wondering about using a thinned down version of my mixture...

Thank you so much for sharing this! I'm in the process of making my first mask for a client (I repeatedly warned them it'll be my first, but they insisted). I had figured some steps in my head, thanks to the experience Ive had with similar projects, but this tutorial definitely showed me an easier way for some things, and solidified the steps I had in mind.

I can not even imagine how much patience you have to make these. I have trouble waiting for food to heat up in the microwave. ^^lll

Does the Liquitex come as an airbrush paint or do you have to dilute it with another product?
