How they are made:
We have moulds of all the masks in the Gallery which have been designed in clay or plastercine over a plaster face cast. The designs are then cast to create a negative mould in plaster or silicone rubber or carved as a positive wooden mould for leather masks. Copies are then taken from the moulds in the following materials: Blotting paper, Papier-mâché, plaster bandage and plaster polymer, latex, leather, buckram and other natural materials. The studio is overseen by Michael Chase.
We are available to design and create masks for productions or training, tailored to your needs. We can collaborate with you in making masks for specific shows, where conversations with writers, directors and designers can set a process in motion. We design working models and finally settle on specific designs for your show.
These masks can be made form a verity of materials to suit the function of the commissioner. Please note that for this to be done a good working period is required to get them to you in good time. These cost double the price of gallery masks, and once the commissioner has completed their first season, the masks designs are then made available in the Gallery for the open market as the designs are owned by Mike Chase Masks.
