These blanks come UNFINISHED, meaning you have to be the one to install eyes, jawsets, fur, and whatever else. We have several videos on our youtube page that will help you get started!
HINGES: We do sell hinges should you choose to order the pieces of this blank separately. This mask requires a V hinge, and an extra set of springs to work properly.
Our hinge kits come with the hardware needed to install them as well, which includes screws, lock nuts and washers. We also include extension springs with our hinge kits, to help with the moving jaw.
Type of masks: We do not set up the moving jaw; it is the customers responsibility to make their moving jaw in the best way for them. You can either use the elastic method or the spring method; whichever you find to be easiest for you.
- Upper Jaw Only Comes with only the upper half of the mask, like if you wanted to make a headdress or decoration.
Lower Jaw Only Comes with only the lower jaw of the mask
- Cut and hinged masks are pull from the mold and cut, sanded around all edges and then the hinges are installed. It is then sent to the customer ready to have everything installed. Springs are attached on the upper jaw, however you need to figure out the placement for where it goes on the bottom, as it tends to vary on a per person basis.
*our springs are made with a zinc plated music wire and are custom ordered as such so will never rust, nor need oiling. Positioning of the springs on a mask varies per person, since each person is typically shaped differently, and the spring needs to be positioned according to that and the specific tension they need*
