Ok so my latest Latex Raptor mask (first casting from mold) is a quick paint-up on a ridiculously thin latex casting. Too thin. So i reinforced it with 1" polyfoam so it keeps its shape and you can wear it.. Its made so you can cut open the mouth so you can use that area to look out of the mask. You have to glue the latex raptor lips to the polyfoam or it flops." This was my first latex casting of this piece, It seems the latex i ordered was a bit thinner than normal latex. I now am using something that is a bit thicker from a different distributor and I reinforce my masks with burlap. This is an older photo. The mask has its eyes painted.
Ill bring this one to #FURLANDIA and hope it sells
