This listing is for one unfinished DIY resin mask blank, used in the creation of realistic fursuit heads and animal masks. This shape was sculpted by the talented Crystumes Costumes (https://crystumes.weebly.com/). I am proud to partner with her and offer this item in coordination with her. By purchasing this blank, you support both myself and the original sculptor, Crystumes.
This mask shape is expertly sculpted, highly accurate, and customizable for a large variety of species - just use your imagination (and maybe a little foam padding)! The beak has been sanded smooth for a beautiful finish. It would be fantastic to use for a raven, crow, magpie, or any other corvid. It has a black interior to reduce light interference. This blank works best with 1.5inch cabochon eye blanks.
I aim to make lightweight, smooth mask blanks that are fun to work with, and comfortable to wear. This blank measures 8" across from cheek to cheek and 10.5" from chin to forehead. If you have a larger head, please be aware that you may need to make some adjustments to help it fit comfortably. You can adjust the size by heating the edges with a craft heat gun and carefully pulling them outwards (please be sure to protect your hands with an oven mitt or a towel). As with any mask blank, padding the inside with felt, craft foam, etc. will greatly increase the comfort and fit of your finished item.

Cut and Hinged: Edges sanded, vision ports cut and sanded, jawline cut and sanded, and V-hinges installed with Chicago screws. No buckram tearduct mesh, eyes, elastic, or additional parts included.
