After watching them my eyes were opened to how to proceed with customising the mask/torso to my own preference - if only I'd paid attention to my emails then I would have known this beforehand(!) Ah well!
So, the first task was to make the eyeholes bigger as I said in Part 6. I always do this on my other masks so I felt comfortable doing it here also. Cutting silicone was a slightly familiar affair too since it feels like cutting a chicken fillet up both in terms of texture and colour(!)
For this process I used both nail scissors and an art scalpel. Over the years I've found the easiest way to determine how to adjust them is to wear the mask and then use a pencil to draw on the mask around your natural eye shape.
I tried that here though and the pencil didn't quite take to the silicone so I took it off and did it by hand putting a cheeseboard inside the mask and using the scalpel to cut in smooth motions around the eyeholes. In the end I expanded them by about 4mm.
