Hi there,

I'm a newbie to the forum and am at the begining to make the predator mask and will be posting the step by step images here. I have managed to get a polystyrene Head and did some investigation into which clay that I needed and I was informed that klean klay was the best to be used, I have managed to find only one person in the uk that sells this at www.propbuilder.co.uk. I have noticed that the polystyrene head is smaller than my head, how do I measure my head so I don't make the mask to small so it dosen't fit my head.

I wouldn't worry too much about how big a preds head is........as like humans.....their noggins vary somewhat.
I would worry more about how the eyes on your poly head measure up to YOUR eyes....as seeing out of your mask will be quite important lol.
Another thing to take into consideration is the bio......are you gonna make your own custom bio made to fit your mask perfic?.....or are you gonna buy one?.......if your gonna buy one....then wait till you get that before you start cos you'll need to take measurements.....also....is it part of a suit?.......how tall are you........cos if your only 5'6 or so.......your gonna look a bit top heavy with a head made for an 8' Pred.

Thanks, I'll put a welcome note in. If I'm successful with the mask I will be making my custom bio for it, I won't be buying, I'm 5'8 so I'm designing around that at the moment. Once I have designed the pred face and happy with it, I was going to use plaster to make the mould and then pour in the latex and build the layers up, I've measured the eye level, its not entirely accurate, hopefully it won't be too far off. I'll post some picks up once I find my camera
