Looks like it is sticking now. I left it to cure before touching it this time. I will definitely pick up some silpoxy now though.

I've been working on glueing hair the past few days and finished up tonight. The silicone is going to dry overnight and I'll start punching hairs tomorrow, then start styling the untamed hair that is out of control right now.

I punched hairs around the mouth, nose, and mustache. I might go back and punch some more in the bottom lip. Something doesn't feel right. Might need more punches closer together.

Add some elastic to the back of the mask. I usually add half of a skateboard helmet to the back to keep the mask in place once you open the mouth. I'm trying this instead since it is more form fitting to my face and head.

3rd mask using a brown tinted skin and sil-poxy to paint the nose/eyes and attach the hair. I used a half skateboard helmet attached the face this time instead of the elastic that I used on the first mask.
