Hi, Deb....I recently previewed a super video called MASK-MAKING FOR FUN
AND PROFIT from Educational Video Network, Inc., 1401 19th Street,
Huntsville, Texas 77340, #1-409-295-5767 for $40. The masks are done with
high school students and two men art teachers. They make giant balloon,
papier-mached covered shells and adding big things like strainers for eyes,
plastic cups and wine glasses for features, electric Christmas lights, etc.
and cover the entire thing with this foam to give it alien-like skin. They
spraypaint and use acrylic for color. They looked dynamite. I can't answer
your other questions because I haven't tried it yet. I know it's toxic and
doesn't come off hands or clothes. I just bought a can to try it. I do know
you have to use a serated knife to cut, saw, or shape it after drying. It's
rock hard when it dries. A med. can cost around $4 and covers approx. 235
linear feet of 1/2" thickness. There's also have a super large can of this
stuff. Hope this helps. Cya..........
