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 need a little help. Right now I'm looking for plaster gauze for casting my face and the one I'm looking at says it's good for belly casting, does that mean it's ok to put on my skin?

    Im teaching myself SFX makeup andfor one of my prosthetics i needed a face mold. i had gitten a mask making kit a few years prior that had plaster gauze soidecided to use that. i use vasaline to cover my eyebros and any extra baby hair and started working. i had no complications untill it needed to be taken off. as my hair is quite thick, when i added the vasaline some hair didnt stick down and got pulled away(which was enevitably quite painful).so dear commenters wh are deciding to do this: although the plaster gauze didn't dry up my skin, it was ecedingly painful to remove, so unless you have the proper materials(a nice oil or vasolie as well), i would not recomend using this method.

    Omg. I did this last night and MAN I wish I face planted the Vaseline instead of just putting it on my brows and under eye area. It came off easily where I had Vaseline.. but as for the rest of my face, it hurt. And it did not want to come off no matter how hard I tried. I basically just had to rip it off. A couple things: I covered my hair with plastic wrap and kept it in place on my forehead using liquid latex as an adhesive—I don’t think it’s worth risking your hair falling into the plaster. And this video made it look so easy but taking it off did not go that smoothly for me at all. I’m very happy to have my own face cast but there has to be a better way of doing this. Maybe covering your whole face in Vaseline would help the mask come off? Idk good luck >.<

    Hello. I want to make a mask to wear for a cosplay of Lele who is the female volcano in Pixair’s short film “LAVA”. It is at the beginning of the movie “Inside Out”. I need a mold that will hold up to thermoplastic and heat gun. Do you think this plaster cast would work?

    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.
