Removing a crease from a latex mask
« on: November 09, 2011, 01:58:03 PM »
Hi,

I have an older mask with a nasty crease down the center of the face. What is the best way to remove this crease to get this thing back to normal. I tried quickly with a hairdryer directed at the front of the mask but the crease just came right back. Is there a trick to it? Should I be heating from the inside?

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

You can try stuffing the mask to it's normal shape and either hit it again with the hair-dryer, or put it on one of those shoe racks inside your clothes dryer.  Afterward, let it set and see if the stuffing helps it stay in it's normal shape. 

They're might be other things you could do, such as having it foamed or glueing strips of latex on the inside to straighten it out, but these things (at least the foaming) would render the mask unwearable, which may or may not be important to you. 

Best of luck with it.

Arrrrgh, I've had to undo such negligence many times. Try using foil tape >



The roll with the blue backing is my favorite; very thick and sticky, can also be crimped to
hold any shape desired. First, I swab out the inside of the mask with a damp cloth to remove
any remaining powder, let it dry, then apply a strip of tape under the crease, pressing it on until
smooth. If the crease is too well established and resistant to correction, add another layer of tape.
I've had to use as many as four on stubborn distortions ... but in the end, it's always worked.

This DPS Mr Spock mask from 1976 had sat crumpled in storage for decades,
leaving it with the worst case of creases I'd ever seen >



It could never look like new again but, with the help of foil tape and some
hair restyling, it's been brought back to reasonably displayable condition >
