View Full Version : Making a Bleach hollow mask?

08-06-2010, 11:50 PM
I'm going to make my own mask for Hichigo's new form for AWA. What would be the best clay to use? I wanna say I've heard that DAS is fairly popular.

Also, would I be better off modeling some wire mesh to the shape of my face or putting the clay over a standard plastic mask?

And a final off topic question while I'm here, what's the best body paint for a reasonable price?

My favorite type of clay to use is Sculpey Ultra Light.
It's a type of polymer clay, oil based so you have to bake it in the oven instead of air drying. Once baked, it's almost fluffy feeling, but it's quite sturdy. After it's baked, you can even sand it, paint it to how you like. It's a really light clay, like it says, and weighs practically nothing compared to other clays.

I used a foam head to mold the clay on, but make sure you have plastic wrap or foil on the foam head because this clay will stick like glue to it and make it very hard to get off the foam.
I made Neliel's mask, you can see it pre-baked under her cosplay link on my profile.

Some people like to use Crayola's Model Magic, but I find that it can be a little more difficult to keep it in place once you mold it. Sometimes it comes out looking cracked too.
I think Sculpey Ultra Light (or any Sculpey clay) is your best bet.

Hope this can help you! :)

I made Halibels mask out of Model magic over a plastic base and it worked fairly well. It did crack a little but that added to the effect.
