SCULPTING AND USING WORBLA
After building the ice cream man’s mask for Seaside Terror out of a latex cast and fabric I decided I wanted to experiment developing detailed lightweight masks out of Worbla. Under the guidance of Russel Dean from Strangeface I did just that; and loved every minute! The finishing techniques and improvisations which were played out afterwards were inspiring. Now I want to make and work with more masks.
