Half Mask Workshop – 2018
17th & 18th February 2018
9 am-6 pm – Maximum 16 Students – Ages 12 and Up
Want to create your own custom mask, or display a creature sculpt on your wall? Well come to this two day workshop where we have loads of tips and tricks to help you create something special!
In this class we will work together over two days for you to sculpt, cast, and pour your latex mask so you can learn just how those awesome display masks are created.
Bring your sculpting tools and your eyeforms, or if you need those items, let us know and we can supply for the duration of the class.
This fast paced class is filled with activities. Take a look at the timeline below:
- Design discussion followed by a quick sculpture demo
- Sculpting your character
- Molding in plaster
- Demolding your character
- Dwelling the latex
- Making your own sculpting tools
- Painting demonstration
- Painting your mask (time permitting)
Be sure to bring your sculpting tools and eye forms for your character. If you need those supplied we can do so for the duration of the class, but have limited number of eye forms. This is an intense 2 day workshop with very little downtime, so be prepared to get busy creating.
We will be working with WED Clay, Plaster, Latex, Sculpting Tools, Acrylic Inks, Acrylic Gloss Medium, Air Brushes, and a variety of other materials. Please ensure you are not allergic to latex prior to coming to the workshop.
