Ghoul Mask


Plaster molding wraps, Polymer clay, Hot glue,  Acrylic Paint

I wanted to do something extra last year when making my costume so I decided that I would make a mask. The mask base was made by laying cut and wet pieces of plaster wrap over my face.  I had to use petroleum jelly to avoid pulling all of my facial hair off and make the removal process easier once it dried.  After that I sculpted, baked, and glued all of the facial features on the hardened plaster mask.  I painted the teeth yellow for maximum ghoulishness and the mask base behind the teeth black to give the illusion of a mouth.  Everything else was unpainted due to most ghouls in media being portrayed with pale white skin, also because it was 4AM and the night before Halloween!
