What kind of paint to use for mask touch-ups?

Well the title says it all. Got a mask I bought off ebay and it looks a little cheap. Was hoping to fix up the rot so it looks more real. Current trying to fix the hair too which hasn't been glued on properly as tuffs of hair come out when you run your fingers through it.

I've been trying to remove the excess hair and then tweak it a little to look somewhat more movie accurate.

Once that's done I just want to go over the rot which has even been neglected in certain parts.

A picture of what your working with might help out.

I like the mask because it hides my face, it hides my uglyness

i usually use some light acrylic paint (i know it cracks/rots latex, etc blah blah) but it looks sweet, mix it up with some water and paint it into the scars. You can use a pencil to shade the inside of the cracks. the mask texture doesn't look bad at all! but you're right, could deff use some quick touchups here and there. :) good luck bro!

DO IT.

The textures not too bad but it's been neglected in certain areas and looks shiny and fake in person. Thanks for the feedback mate :D

Here's some new pictures of the touch-up I did to the mask. Not sure if I'll tweak it a little more but I thought I'd share :)

I got a question: Can you spray your mask with an acrylic clean coat to protect the paint or is that not good for the latex?

Ok, so I decided to go ahead and give the whole mask a paint up. I think that it's going pretty well so far. I've been using pictures of the Hero for reference as well. It's not completely done yet but I thought I'd share the progress so far :D


This was the first coat I did:

These are after a second darker coat was added to various parts of the mask and some yellowing applied for rot:

I guess this thread could be moved to UPCOMING PROJECTS thread. Might be more suited.

Anyway, I got some pictures of the pretty much finished version. Just not sure if I'll put the blood on. What do you guys think of it?

Well I decided to re-try painting my mask. I'm going to attempt to re-hair it too. Let me know what you think :D
