Hello all, I just received my new Bio for my P1 mask and it seems a bit on the small side. It's made of resin and in kit form so I'm guessing after I clean up and smooth out the entire mask it might fit better than it does now. However, in case there's no difference, is there a way to work the resin to make it fit or am I out of luck?

Nice bio! You can heat it up with a hair dryer. That will make it soft and then you can stretch it out abit. But be careful, Resin tends to heat up rather quickly, so just fan the hair dryer over the area you want to stretch out and little by little heat it and shape it. Again GO SLOW, MINIMAL heat, just enough to make the resin where you can shape it. Warning do not over stretch it, you most likely will not be able to go back. So little by little, little heat little shape, check it often on the mask to make sure you don't over do it.

Hope that helps and makes sense. (y)

Thanks quake; I've used that technique before but with vinyl models. I wasn't positive if it would work well on resin however I'll give it a shot. Thanks for your input and kind words :)

moved to the correct section.


and spanked for purchasing a recast :mad:
Oh, sorry about that but thanks for putting it in the right section :p I couldn't pass this mask up as it was a great deal. However, the recast thing is probably why it's giving me trouble; if I can't work out the kinks, be sure I wont ever buy the recast masks off ebay again. Any idea where I could get a better P1 Bio that would suit my mask???

Hey bud, yeah the bio is from ebay; the price was too good to pass up so I nabbed it. I see you're a fellow Texan; I've been a san Antonian all my life :D
