Face cast tutorial

By  | 

The do it yourself face cast!
To make sure our channel is a one-stop-shop for everything in special effects makeup we decided to do a face cast tutorial as well. This will be used in some of our upcoming makeups so make sure you create your own. :-)

PLEASE NOTE! ONLY USE PLASTER GAUZE ON YOUR FACE.
Do not use regular plaster mix on your skin as it may get too warm when setting.

    I have a question. Would you be able to use ultra cal 30 for the face pour instead of plaster, so it's less brittle?

    The other tutorials looks so scary. They cover thick layer on their faces and struggle to remove it. This one looks easy :) thank you for sharing this tutorial. Definitely doing this one

    Just did a face cast with this tutorial! It's super easy but I would suggest wearing a bald cap or swim cap to extend the plaster further as the cast can become a little skinny and shallow! I've seen conversations about alginate but this application is super easy for a beginner like me

    Hey Ellie Max I have an idea for a costume I'm doing for Halloween that involves owl parts but I was wondering if you guys could do a video on on a beak prosthetic like one that I could still talk and drink stuff if possible and maybe eat things I just thought you guys would be the best people to go to because you're really good at making things livable but if you got a lot of stuff on your hands and you can't make it that's fine and if you already have one on a beak or something like that it would be nice to give me a link

    This works for me, I've used it for half casts and a full cast but I suggest instead of going out and buying all these expensive things to stop it actually hurting your skin just to cover your face in Vaseline, works for me and my cousin who gets stuck with me sticking stuff to her face

      Plaster Gauze roll: $10-$15, at craft store or online Oil: In kitchen pantry or under bathroom sink (Baby to Olive to any kind): Free Sandpaper (120 grit or so), 1- 8"x 10" sheet: < $5 Wood Glue: < $5 Use a small rag instead of sponge brush if you don't have one. SO....make it for less than $25.

    What if I forgot to put oil in between the face gauce cast and the plaster mix? I forgot to and am letting it harden over night. Will I be able to remove the gauce cast or do I now have a useless plaster mold stick on gauce forever? I used up all my gauce so I really hope this is not useless -__-

    This may seem like a really dumb question. but how will you know that the plaster is already on the Gauze? Will it say that on the box when you buy it? or is there a certain kind you have to buy with the plaster on it like you said above. Sorry I know that's probably going to be the dumbest thing ever asked on here, haha.

    Guys it isn't dangerous if you find the right product to use. Look for things like belly casting kits for pregnant women. They are made to last forever and are made to go on skin. Of course if you use Plaster of Paris it's gonna rip your face off. Be smart and do your research before saying this video isn't safe.

    I wish Macs was more specific about how to cover your face properly. I didn't go all the way under my chin because I didn't realize I needed to. I love Ellimacs but please don't glaze over the details!😁

      It depends on the brand. I had to put vaseline on my whole face. I seriously recommend that though, you'll get the cast of way easier.
