MOLD HELP PLEASE!


Hi. I have an old Brians combo shell, so one is bugging me to buy it. I love the shape and just want it for the man cave. I wanted to know, is there a way I can replicate it's shape,somehow? Just something that I can lay a layer or two that looks like the original mask but is cool for a shelf. Do i wrap it in plaster soaked gauze? Any ideas? Thanks!

The poor man's way to do it would be to wrap the masque in plastic, lay plaster or even cheap fibre glass on it, then build your part from the mould. You would have to smooth the mould out a bit with this method, using clay or bondo to smooth the wrinkles that a bag or cling film would leave. I have used plastic grocery bags for this purpose, even wrapping the skates in which I made shot blocking protection. I have also made moulds from Bondo coating the part in wax and then a simple mould release on top of the part.

The greatest part, once you have your tool made, is that you can make the masque as cheaply as possible if it is just for a man cave.

Please note that while I have never made a goalie masque, I have built many items from composite.

If you do have an HVLP sprayer and air compressor, you could order up some Mould Release wax and Mould Release coating and 'glass over that. That would net a LOT less work for you. It wouldn't be that difficult to do.

I'm in Pittsburgh, there ain't nuthin here, lol. I did some research. I used painters tape, taped up the entire inside on my mask shell. Laid down a thin coat of pure silicone, then some wax, pound in plaster. I'm gonna try and get it out in Monday. Wish me luck!
