Incidentally , one of my "latter day" Topstone Mummies has a very elaborate paint job , but looks different than the ones I got from VXX. Just wondering if the Mummy was RESCULPTED at any point recently by a one of the new independent mask makers . But  truth is , it's difficult to top the VXX paint work!

Hi Ray , You did it again - another great installment ! The Mummy is one of my favorite Topstones - I have 3 of them each with different paint schemes  !!!
At some point, when you are finished, you should consider compiling these Tomb Of The Topstone segments into a DVD . There's really not too much out there on these iconic masks and they deserve to be remebered .

Excellent installment Ray! You hit the nail on the head. This was my hands down favorite Topstone mask as a kid. I had a chance to purchase the VXX recast and I regret not picking it up now. Great job!

Thatís the old 67 plastisol Skull, Sort of pre-dated the vinyl that was used throughout the 70s

Here are a couple tips to tell if it is vinyl or latex.  Latex stretches and vinyl does not have stretch.  Vinyl masks are usually thicker than latex (unless custom or the reissues) and they have a shiny texture inside with some "drips" which formed during the roto-casting process.  Also, heat can be applied to vinyl to bring it back into shape, but it has little to no affect on latex.  Hope this helps.

That I'm not sure of. I didn't know much of these masks when I bought it.

It truly is. Such a wonderful forum. It feels like such a waste.
Thanks, man!

Sorry you can't get any answers to your questions,I guess the pro's who did frequent this site have moved on or lost interest in the mask hobby.Sad,very sad.Sorry I can't help but just maybe someone will drop back in and see your post,Good luck.
