Hello Iam a total newb here and I'am planning to make a PT. 1 Predator Bio Mask or a scar Predatror mask without the symbol and I don't have a large budget. I want to make one like this:

Mostly this one:

I want to know how to make it. I had an idea of taking a styrofoam head and air dry clay and building around it to the shape and form of the bio mask. When that was done i would put some vaseline for easy release. Then I would use strips of plaster and cover the entire clay sculpture with the strips except for the eyes. (by the way how many layers should i put. I was thinking 5 or more.) When it was dry I would paint it then I would put wire mesh for the eyes.
By the way this is a good paint tutorial on how to paint it: http://www.mysteria.co.uk/Tutorials/painthelmets.html Ill just add some battle damages.

I was wondering would the plaster be strong enough to support it?

Also If the plaster wasn't strong enough should I resin and fiber glass it like the Halo pepakura models? I read the instructions on how to do one with the casting and the fiberglass stuff and It seems too complicated and I've never made a bio mask before, and i was wondering if this was a good method... Please be easy on me im new to this forum.
