    Paint Ball Sculpt

    I'm just now starting a paint ball mask only because I've never done one before . I was able to block it out last night and have a little fun with it but would like to get some input from people that actually play paint ball.
    The shape of the eye space will change when I get a set of goggles to add to it and maybe the mouth will change as well , for now we've named it the joker mask .
    Here's some pics

    Hi Brian,

    Nice sculpt...if you're going to do this for a Paintball gog, try using the JT Flex-7s. They have a nice wraparound shape.

    That looks good. Try shaping it to fit the Proto mask due to its "quick change" lense and slightly closer profile. I've been out of the game for a while so there may be a better mask to use.

    that's looking great. what would you make it out of? gotta be something relatively impact resistant.

    Re: Paint Ball Sculpt

    Smoothon has a high impact plastic resin that sets up the same as the plastic used to make paintball masks or say a Frisbee disk.
    Pretty low cost stuff if done right .

    Updated pics for the mask , I'm using Airsoft Gogs on this sculpt and will be buying a paintball mask and goggles to get a better idea of how to finish it off.

    If you make a run of that mask, I am in, I airsoft all the time, and having one of those would be sick as hell.

    Re: Paint Ball Sculpt

    Cool sculpt... but I was playing speedball for a few years and I find breathing in a regular mask so-so, not to mention stuffy.

    plus I don't think you can use Airsoft gogs to a PB field??

    also depending on what materials you use for the final product... it may be affect your game... eg: to hard/soft.

    As a player I would aim for that part if I knew it was hard... easy for me to break paint.
    second if it was too soft I'd ask a ref to check it cause it may unfairly cause too much bounce...

    also it may not be safe to play with something not suited for the velocity of paint... I set my marker to 300fps.

    and i don't think the sculpt you have will work on any PB mask right now... I'd stop till you have a real mask to work with, why waste time, only to re work it?

    cool though.

    What he said

    I plan on getting into airsoft soon and I think this would make a very interesting face for The Shadow to wear onto the battlefield. cover from the nose down with a red scarf, toss on a fedora, and you're good to go

    Re: Paint Ball Sculpt

    Thanks for the insite sixxgunn, I believe this mask may be better used as an airsoft mask still there are a few elements in the way a paintball mask is constructed that may be useful.
    As far as paint ball goes I'm going to take a good look at what is currently being used on the market and adapt a sculpt that will lend itself to off the self accessories ie Goggles.
    I'll get with my local paintball shop and run my material choices by them and hope we get it right the first time.
    Again Thanks sixxgunn

    NP.... and paintball is a team sport and comunication is key! I flip up the bottom of my Flex 7 for that reason also less stuffy..some guys trim their mask.

    you may find your mask may muffle your voice??
