what type of foam latex would i use to make a whole mask? and would the casting process be the same as making a normal latex mask? i cant find any tutorials and im completely uneducated on foam latex, i've never used it before, any info would help thanks!

    You could use the same mold but would need a core as foam latex needs to be contained in a specific volume during baking.  That said, foam latex is not normally used for a full mask due to it being a bit more fragile and not intended to last as long.  Foam latex is usually used for makeup appliances, rather than as a full mask.

    For a full mask, you may want to look into silicone.
