Making plaster molds of your face
 
with Monte, Steve, Avé, and Ellen

NEWmyraku0102

Ellen told me about making face masks using molds.  I've thought of it for many years, so I wanted to give it a try. Steve and Avé wanted to join in the fun. Here is what we used:

  1. Plaster of Paris (about 2 dry cups/person) Lowe's had a 8# container for under $4
  2. vaseline for your face
  3. plastic drinking straw cut into 3" lengths
  4. cold water
  5. big mixing bowl
  6. rubber spatula
  7. shower cap to protect your hair
  8. place to lie down.
  9. patience
applying vaseline

Wear old clothes. Put on a shower cap you can throw away (or don't mind cleaning lots of Vaseline off of). Spread Vaseline very liberally all over your face,  especially the eyebrows and eyelashes. Steve had a couple of eyebrow hairs that stuck out quite far and he had a painful time getting the mold off. I trimmed my eyebrows right after that and had no problems.

Lay down and get comfortable. Have the person put the 3" straws in each nostril. Use a nice big bowl and mix 2 cups of water with 4 cups of plaster of Paris. Start applying the Plaster of Paris around the face. Take special care when applying it around the nose and eyes. If the straws get bumped out, have the person who is being molded put them in again. Go to page 2
