Goto Monstermakers.com they have a BOOK I believe on the entire process of making a mask.

Do not however buy all your materials from there. Buying clays and plasters from there can be pricey.

To buy inexpensive clay goto LAGUNACLAY.com and search the Local Distributor sections.
Buy some WED CLAY. It is water based and will dry out if you do not wrap it in plastic and spray it with a water bottle.

Then get some Plaster (ULTRACAL30)
You can get in from gypsumsolutions.com, again check the Local Distributor Section for a local place to buy it.

Shipping clays and plasters is heavy and expensive.

But like I said, get the book. READ READ REAS and then you will have a good basis of understanding. Then you can PM me with questions. If need be we can talk via the phone, its much easier than typing.

goodluck.

Just to echo what meangene said, monstermakers.com has kits too. They start out at around $225. Gene knows his stuff!

I second that YOUTUBE suggestion.

If we were smart we would create a LAIR Youtube channel and host relavant videos to creature creation. Then link it to the site here.

I hope I didnt just nominate myself for that job either! I have no time as is.
