Blue's mask project - Charley Hall
First cast

First cast

The first cast from the mould! It was fibreglass with metal powder mixed in to give it a slight weight, and metallic look when polished. I have since found out that I didn't put enough metal powder into the mix (it should be 50/50 by sight, not by weight as I thought).
I decided to go with my first pull even though it was imperfect rather than throw it away because of time constraints, which is lucky since I lost the mould!
You can see the stray parts of fibreglass around the edge, despite the very high exposure of the photo. You can also see on the left where my hand is, where the original place for the screw nozzle didn't cast properly, so instead I attach the original that I used during the sculpt.
