Does anyone know why my latex is cracking when drying inside the mold?

Hi, I've been learning how to make latex masks and I'm always running into new problems. This time my latex is cracking and ripping apart when drying in the mold. I assume it's because the latex is thicker in some spots so the difference in drying time is pulling it away from itselft, but i don't know how to avoid that. I fill-dwelled the mold and let it drain for at least 10-20 minutes. What more can i do to make sure its evenly coated?

    Thanks, yeah that makes a lot of sense because my first pulls are always garbage due to thin spots no matter how long I let it dwell. And the thin spots on the mask match up with the darker area on my mold.
