Getting into Mask Making...

19 posts in this topic

Hey, I decided that I wanted to get into Mask Making ( Latex ones ), like what Tom Savini does, obviously I'll never be nearly as good as him. But any help on getting started? I'm only 14 so I'm on a slight budget. Thanks!

This isn't really suitable for this forum, this is really just for introductions.

I'll move it along to Off Topic and hopefully you'll get some feedback there.

Maybe start off slow by getting already made jason style masks that are white and paint them. Then as you get more into it you will know masks better and be able to ake some cool masks. i make jason masks for fun. i will take a picture of one and show you what i mean.

Wish you the best of luck with this. When I was your age I first saw Dawn of the Dead and was immediately hooked on Savini's effects. I Always wanted to try to make some masks, cadavers, and other gore special effects but never made the time to. I am 35 now and still hoping to get into it. Start now and you may end up with an amazing career!
