I know what you are all thinking...

it has been TEN YEARS.

Ten Looooogn years, and we were all deprived the chance to properly celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the greatest live-action Green Lantern movie of all time.

Also, the *ONLY* live action Green Lantern movie.

So, I needed a mask for costumes and today is your lucky day.

First, start off with reference pics...

Next generic paper mask.

And then realize it is poop, so instead cover your face with plastic wrap, apply FreeForm Air to your face infront of a mirror. Sit expressionless playing scales, in a chair while the stuff sets.

After it sets, sand it down to basic form

Next add the orbital details, making it lumpy again, then sand some more

Next, Xtc was applied using green pigment. Looks kinda blue to me tho.

Then painted with Rust-oleum aluminum 2X with the primer to bringnout the defects.

Patched up a few times, then switched to meadow green Rust-oleum and given several thick coats.

Debating if I should mold out of Sorta clear 40 now and cast or use meshroom to make a 3d stl which I can then cut in half, mirror image, and create a "perfectly symetrical 3D. It almost seems like the mask changes with different scenes, and I can only watch parts of this movie so many time before madness sets in.

Also, if I 3d print, I can angle the sides in ever-so-slightly, and maybe the mask will just grip my face without any adhesive. It already holds onto my face pretty well, and it is rigid

So, mental note: Rustoleum 2X ultracover can impair curing of Sorta-Clear 40. The sorta clear cured everywhere except in direct contact with the mask, so I pulled one out of Task 16 and it looks like burn victim lantern.

Also, delicate props and kids with bats dont always mix.

But a chance to sand is a chance to sculpt.

I will coat with resin only and used Rebound or EcoFlex instead.

Hello true believers!
Well, back to the fray!
Sanded and cleaned up and repaired the broken original mask to remove any chance of another mold reaction fail, and to try and make it more symmetrical.

Maybe I should change the thread's name to, "Help Me Rebound 25, You're My Only Hope."

Coated the cleaned up mask with lotsa release agent, and Rebound 25 applied.

So far, so good.

Should I have made a Rebound samich instead of a one piece mold? Last time I tried that with thin walls, the one piece fared gooder.

Next stop...

Mask Pox!!!

Use small pieces of foam, coated with Rebound 25 to create lumps in the Rebound 25. After that cures I can use FreeForm Air to make a hard, crunchy, outer shell, and *HOPEFULLY* this time I can make pretty mask out of Task 16.

Crunchy, hard, outer shell made of FreeForm Air applied. The Rebound 25 seems to have cured well.

The original mask is made of FreeForm air. Hopefully, I can get it out of the mold in one piece. Use lotsa lube (release agent).

Tomorrow I hope to cast a few mask out of Task 16.

I might feel adventurous and make one out of Sorta-Clear 40 as well.

Come on universe, needin sum currektin

Oh so close! Guestimated 4 oz o fluid to make the mold...the lateral horns are empty balloons.
Since Task 16 is mixed 2:1 by weight, I will try for 4.5 total next time.
Task 16 is also a little green, so I added 2 drops of UVO Green to the mix, may add a drop of white to lighten it up a hair.

When perfected, I will add glow in the dark powder to literally give it a glow.
