Lab Masks (Research)

I've never come across actual surgical masks that look like this (anyone?) but they seem stretchy or kind of rubbery.  In the past I've experimented with sheets of latex, but you have to mix the right color medium, etc.   Kind of a pain.  You can buy pinky-flesh colored vinyl fabric that works nearly as well.  The only downside is that your lipstick will get on the backside and depending on the brand, may not come out.

They are cut straight across the top, but are rounded (pointed?) below the chin.  You can download my free pattern and give it a try.  I like the PVC vinyl with two-way stretch, but felt also works great.
