    Hello all!

    I have recently been interested in buying a mask that is papermache with a coat of epoxy resign. Paper mache itself is not great for masks as paper and glue with humidity and dampness can cause mold, etc…

    However, because it has a coat of epoxy resin, it is supposedly safe from that. Just wondering if epoxy resin itself is safe to be worn for extended periods of time? Especially near the face.

    Thanks!

    Hi Lola,

    Cured epoxy resin is tolerated well by people. For extra safety though, you could use a food safe resin like the Alumilite Amazing clear cast epoxy. We have it in several sizes (blue box) in our store here:

      Thank you! Because the mask is already finished and up or sale, I am not able to request the use of food safe epoxy resin, however I am glad to hear it is safe! When mask wearing, I often use a balaclava for an extra layer anyway, so I should be good.

      Thanks again!
