Head Armature

Neill’s Materials’ range of head armature is the perfect basis on which to do sculptures of masks. Taken from a lifecast it retains many fine details and features such as the ears which are a great reference when doing a sculpture.

This head armature has been adapted with a slightly elongated neck to counter shrinkage when casting masks in latex. The mouth has been set in a slightly open position making it easier to model the lips. As they are slightly parted it’s easier to mould with a touch-down in the lip area making it better when producing silicone masks that require a core.

Dimensions

Head circumference (across brow): 23 1/2 inches or 60cm (approx.)

Neck circumference: 15 inches or 38 cm (approx.)

Ear to ear (across top of head): 13 inches or 33cm (approx.)

Overall height: 18 1/2 inches or 47cm (approx.)

Very light weight but very strong

Neill’s head armature also differs from others on the market in that it’s cast with a polyurethane resin skin backed up with a dense polyurethane foam. This provides a tough surface which can be used repeatedly and is less likely to suffer wear and tear from your sculpture tools and during mould making. Having this resin surface means it can be incorporated as the core part of your mould when making silicone masks or prosthetics.

It’s very light weight but still very strong. This hollow cast armature can be back filled easily with plaster to make it heavier if required.

The cast retains the ears as we find its preferable to have the option to work with or without them. It is however easy to remove them and adapt the head form to your particular needs.

Caution
Please avoid high temperature as this will distort the foam core.
