Are you a fan of Halloween or just like masks in general? Want to learn how to create/make your own? Then come and take part in a FREE online DIY face mask tutorial with none other than Regina resident JC Wylde. Wylde makes movie Props, Masks, & Displays and sells his artwork all around the World. He has had praise from Hollywood (including the actors who play the characters he replicates). In this workshop, JC will explain all of the tools and supplies, how to use these specific sculpting tools, how to make a plaster mold, de-mold the sculpture, prep the mold for use, the pouring of the latex, the pulling of raw latex blank, and the painting and finishing of the latex mask.  (Link to this On-Demand tutorial will be made available soon, so stay tuned!)
