I have tried damp paper towels, foil, saran wrap, working off forms, etc. and
the only way I can get a really good impression of the maskee's face is with
a coating of vaseline. The lips seem especially important in achieveing a
real likeness...we use vaseline there, with a thin layer (one or two
thicknesses) of toilet paper...just enough to keep the gunk out of the mouth.
I've done this project for 20 years, five times per year, so I feel like I've
seen it all! If they are squeemish about the vaseline, i offer all the other
options. Just had a student write in his final evaluation " I wish I would
have used vaseline instead of paper towel for my mask."
