u could just use straight up paperclay but as u saw they created a barrier between the apoxy w clay so u should b ok. i personally would do a base of model magic then covered w paper clay then sanded then another light layer of paper clay to give it the smoothness.

FYI with paper clay to avoid the fragility part of it... take some super glue and rub it into the dried clay with a blue rubber glove. It will make it nice and strong and hard.

so ud have to glue the invisible strap (look for invisible elastic at fabric stores) to the inside of the mask w super glue or some other strong glue. strap needs to b big enough to get around ur head. before u put on the mask apply some spirit gum to ur face most likely right near ur nose but only a little bit. then put the fashion tape on the inside around the areas that will b touching fabric. (velcro also works for this
