Above: Anthony Giordano, Prop Master for 'Saturday Night Live,' begins the process of creating a latex mask. Anthony starts with an original clay sculpture. When complete, he will make a two-part plaster mold using CastRite. Once the mold is finished and cleaned of clay he will pour in ArtMolds' RD-407 masking making latex. The latex is allowed to sit for approximately an hour, then poured back out again. What remains clinging to the sides of the plaster negative will dry over the next day and be peeled out to become the actual mask. It is the trimmed, sanded, painted and finished.
RD-407 Casting Latex is THE liquid rubber used to make high quality masks, body parts and as a skin over polyurethane foams. RD-407 is the industry standard as it is the highest quality of latex available. RD-407 has a very good consistency, but may be thinned with water if needed, and it builds up a good thickness.
Making a latex mold is a simple process just pour in the RD-407 latex and let it stand for about 15 minutes or so. Then pour it out. Often you may achieve better results by slush casting or rolling the latex around in the mold before you pour the excess out.
