How to: Mold an existing mask??


I was thinking about molding one or two of my masks but have no idea where to begin.
Any thoughts and or tips? I am thinking of my Plante as I would like to have replicas of his Boston and Maple leaf masks.
Thanks for the help!

I have done this many times with good success.

Remove all padding. Tape shut all holes, from the inside of the mask. (Basic hockey tape works fine). Coat the inside of the mask with a thin layer of petroleum jelly. Cover the back opening of the mask from one side to the other, again using tape. Work upwards from the chin, and down from th etop of the head. Leave an opening of about 6 inches. Bridge the opening by going tape to tape, leaving a square opening.

Support the mask, face down, with towels, foam, etc... Pour in plaster of paris. When the plaster is set, pull off the mask.

Are you saying to build up the back of the mask with tape to hold the plaster in side the mask..? Weaving the tape side to side to make a false backing with a hole to pour through...?

I may attempt this.

Yes. The tape closes the back of the mask except for the square opening. You may also want to lay a block of wood into the wet plaster. That will give you a handle to grab when pulling the plaster out, as well it will act as a stand for the plug to sit on.

I used this method on a number of masks, including Dave Dryden's original combo, I still have the plaster plug.

Removal of the tape and the finished plaster mold.
Now I need to make it longer in the base and smooth it out.
