You can change the contrast or brighten up the picture, but the eyebrows remain dark and the white paint below the eyebrows protrude through and the sideburns lines get lighter. I know, I've done this several times in the past couple of days.
Glue; why would DPS want a yellow/brown glue line to show across the front of a mask? They made clear glue back then...my 1989/90 The Mask had a clear glue line, my 80's Banshee mask from American Werewolf and my 70's Werewolf I used to have didn't not have a brown glue lines across the front either. Don said it changes over time, he works with the product everyday.
For Josh...Blue tint to the mask; Cundey and Carpenter both have stated a blue tint was added to the mask...maybe on set. Both worked on the movie, you and I weren't there so you have to take their words for it. Don and Rob both stated that they saw blue added to the masks probably for photographic reasons. Again, you weren't there and I wasn't there.
Opinions in this thread are opinions. We all have them...some see hair, some don't. Some see glue, some don't. Some see a shadow, some don't. But, in the end, we're all just one great BIG happy dysfunctional, argumentative, animosity ridden family.
anth0777; I'm glad I made you smile because everyday you join one of my threads...you make me laugh and smile too.
