Masks and 3D Printing welcome experiment.

Start with small wooden faces the CNC machine cut for you. Make masks for them. (Small is good. Small mask=less printing time, more time for design and elaboration.) And the printer excels at small detail.

• Start with glasses, goggles, fangs or horns to disguise your mannequin.
• Learn to match the shape of its face.
• Got a hero? Create a hero mask. Learn to download the detail you need.
• Then create characters entirely on your own.
• Construct a mini gallery to display your masks.
