Vac Form Mask Webbing
« on: August 18, 2016, 01:04:05 PM »
I've got a witch mask I've been getting webbing on and can't get rid of it. The area between her nose and chin, both of which are pointy, gets a web every time I make a pull. I've tried less sag and more sag with the same result.

I know most of you are latex artists, but does anyone have any tips for getting around this? Or a fix for it? I've thought about sanding down the nose and chin on the buck to be less of a drastic valley between them but would rather not compromise my design.

Anytime you're doing a vac form pull which requires a drastic transition in height you risk webbing. I've managed to get around it sometimes by allowing as little sag as possible before doing the vac forming. The more sag the more overall, surface area you're creating. That plastic has to go somewhere.... Can you do the reverse and pull into a negative? Can you post pics of your buck?
Why blow bubbles, unless your going to burst them?
