How are the masks made?

I make a clay sculpture and cast a plaster, negative mould, then I dig the clay out and pour liquid latex in the mould. After the latex has cured, I peel it from the mould, paint the mask and trim it with scissors.

What age group does Small Size fit?

Small masks can fit from age 3 upwards to a small adult face size. The masks are extremely flexible and will fit a small face without stretching and if required will stretch comfortably to fit bigger faces up to a small adult face size.

That age group does the Large Size fit?

Generally  Large Size masks are made to fit standard adult size faces and stretch to accommodate larger faces or people with large hair styles.

Can the masks break if stretched too much?

The rubber we use is completely elastic having 100% stretch memory. Masks can withstand stretch required to fit different face sizes. However we advise not to overstretch the masks to fit objects for which they are not designed.

Can I wear glasses with the mask?

Some of the maskes are designed for glasses wearers eg. Chick and the Rat which leave the eyes free. With other masks, glasses can be worn underneath the mask or over the mask. In fact glasses sometim enhance how the mask looks.

Are the masks hot to wear?

Generally the masks are very comfortable and because they don't cover the entire face they are much cooler than traditional masks.
