19th November 2011 Making of A 2nd Badger jaw.......

In photo 13 I failed to mention that I built a little wall out of plasticine to stop the plaster running everywhere......It can at least be seen in the photo....:)

Woooow, this mask is just amazing!
Not to mention that badgers are some of the coolest animals that exsist~!
:la:

I have a question, if you don't mind my asking for a little help here.
When you wear this and open your mouth, does the mouth of the mask open as well?
Like, properly?
I'm going to a convention in two weeks and need to make a mask a little like this, and this is by far the best tutorial I've found.

Thank you!:)

If the snout and the jaw are glued to your face (as a prosthetic), the jaw should normally open with your mouth. It partly depends on how you glue it on....

When the nose and jaw are incorporated into a mask (or hood) the movement is more limited, but still possible.....

I'm still trying to work out how to make really movable mouths, the info is probably out there on the internet somewhere!!!!

I hope you manage your mask for the convention!!!!

Thank you so much for answering!
I'm not making a full mask/hood, only prostherics, so hopefully I'll glue every part good enough for movements to work properly.

Thanks!

Oh, I have another question (if you don't mind); what sort of paint do you use on your latex masks?
I tried using acrylic paint on one of my old ones, but it didn't work out that well (the paint was old as well, that might have been the problem. But I dunno).

Check out this tutorial! [link]

Acrylic paint+water+latex

I've alternatly worn 2 of these badger hoods for a total of 2 months 6 days a week, 7 hours a day.....In hot dusty weather. The paint stayed on! It seems pretty tough

neat! How to you cast the latex? do you build up layer after layer or pour it in?

Thank you!:)Layer after layer, liquid or cream latex.. Pour or brush it in, then pour out excess ( up to 14 layers)..... But I'm still trying to work out the ideal amounts..... It's not easy! I'll do a tutorial on it one day when (if) I can work it out!
