Plaster Mask (Face Casting)


Plaster Casting


Let's create a mask from a person's face.  You can ask a friend, family member or subject to sit very still in a chair or lay down on the floor while you perform the following tasks.  I highly recommend preparing all materials before beginning to apply Sandtastik's Rappit Plaster Molding Cloth to your subject.



Rappit Plaster ClothSTEP 1  Cut Rappit Plaster Molding Cloth into thin strips and set aside.  5 cm (2") wide x 30 cm (12") long.

1STEP 3  Cover subject's eyes with soft tissue or gauze.  Prepare desired surface of face with a thin layer of petroleum jelly.· This will help to remove finished casting with ease and make clean up a snap.


STEP 4  With wet hands, dip a strip of Rappit Plaster Molding Cloth into cool water and place onto subject's face.

HINT:  Start with area over the eyes to ensure that tissue or gauze stays in place properly

4STEP 5  Repeat this process, slightly overlapping previously laid strips, until you obtain desired size and shape.


5STEP 6  Let dry for a few minutes before attempting to remove from surface.  Once removed, shape/finish nose area.

HINT:  You can encourage texturizing/smoothly of plaster surface by gently gliding over surface with wet finger tips.
HINT: You can strengthen mask by adding more Rappit Plaster Molding Cloth strips to the inside of mask so as not to distort facial features.

6STEP 7  (Optional)  Can be air cured or placed in microwave to dry. (30 sec. intervals)

SandpaperSTEP 8  (Optional)  Once mask is thoroughly dry, use a fine grit sandpaper and gently sand surface to desired finish.
