Create Your Own Silicone Halloween Mask
Making a Quick And Easy Brush On Silicone Halloween Mask That Looks Like It Took Days To Create
Professional mask makers will spend days crafting an elaborate and highly detailed silicone mask and then sell it for hundreds or even thousands of dollars to film makers, collectors, etc.

Here's an easy way to make a mask using skin-safe Dragon Skin Fast that takes only a few hours to create but can be almost as scary cool as masks created in days. A thin skin of silicone is brushed in layers onto a head form, resulting in a very stretchy, creepy silicone mask which is skin safe and goes on and off easily. When you wear it, mask will bend and flex with your expressions. Your imagination is your only limit in designing your own custom mask!

You will need the following materials:
   * Styrofoam Wig Head
   * Large Piece Of Spandex Or Other Stretchy Fabric
   * Base Board (Melamine board is recommended)
   * Glue Gun
   * Disposable Brushes
   * Measuring/Mixing Containers
   * Mixing Sticks
   * Scissors
   * Dragon Skin Fast Silicone
   * Silc-Pig Pigments
   * Thi-Vex Silicone Thickener

NOTE: In advance, cut the fabric into a 12 inch by 5 inch (30cm by 13cm) strip.
