    This is what I've got to show for about an hours work. Its paper mache' and cardboard so far. It's no where close to perfect...(YET)2 I'm going to put spackling putty on it and sand it smooth followed by resin spray to make it glossy before I make a mold and cast it in resin. At this point, it's just a base to sculpt the details onto. please ignore the sharpie marker details. I was trying to draw the lips free handed and got them VERY crooked.Im still trimming away the hair to get it as close to the original as I can but there's no good pictures anywhere of this mask.

    you can click it to make it bigger, sorry for the blurry pictures

    check out that sweet sharpie paint job. I still have alot of sanding to do but it's getting there. I'm pretty proud of myself.
    Still more sanding...

    Then I've got to go pick up some dry wall putty to fill in the small imperfections.
    I've been taking my time on this mask because I don't have many other things to do and it entertains me when I'm bored.

    *I re applied another layer of paper mache mush last night and this morning I sanded it all smooth and applied spackling compound and as soon as its dry, ill do that again before I spray it with resin to harden the compound up
    I'm really excited because I'm very positive that I will have this completed by tonight now that I have all of my supplies!
    I really hope this thread will inspire others to do their own projects since I've shown how to do basically everything and the best part is that it costs practically nothing but time and determination!

    * /sanded the first application of spackling compound and applied gloss white spray paint. It's drying right now but as soon as it is, I will sand again and add more spackling compound.For some reason, the eyes look different sizes in this picture but they are even in person so I guess its the angle perhaps?

    After getting a better reference, I cut the entire part under the nose and re sculpted the jaw to make it a bit longer, sanded down the eyebrow parts to make them less defined, after that, I lowered the eyes and made longer eyelids. Now, I have to redo the hair lines and the nose to make them in proportion to the rest of the newly re sized face.

    I have been meaning to watch that movie, but too busy lately, looks freaky! I like the juxtaposition of the traditionally beautiful imagery of the pin-up, and putting it on something scary. I found this really cute little clown doll that is beat up and dirty and it is one of the freakiest things I have ever seen. I had to buy it, and now it is hung by a noose in my studio.
    Sorry, I am drifting off the subject...
    It looks to be coming along quite nicely, good job! Are you going to do the other masks from the film as well?

    I could if anyone wanted me to, this is something I'm making for my girlfriend that I'll make resin casts available if anyone wants it.

    Hey guys! Can anyone give me a crash course on what would be the best way to mold this once it's done? Should I make a glove mold(front only) with a plaster bandage shell and just brush the resin inside of it? I may have answered my own question but it never hurts to ask. Im just a little unsure because I've never cast anything larger than a gun.

    Yep front glove mold with either fiberglass or plaster mother mold is all you need. Should be super easy to cast

    To be honest I kind of like the picture you have of the mask partially sanded. I think it's scarier than the movie version.

    Saw the film...loved it

    Saw your pin up mask.....lovin it

    This mask would be awsome for airsoft, could make a scratched up version with metal gauze in the eye holes, would look sweet
