"E.T." Extra Terrestrial Prop not a Life Mask Cast in Hydrocal , great detail:
$75.00

This is a very rare & hard to find face cast of "E.T." from the original sculpt by the great sculptor Carlo Rambaldi. It was approved by Steven Spielberg for the movie. This casting is made out of sturdy white Hydrocal plaster, with a metal loop attached to the back ready to hang on the wall. It was cast out of the original mold from the movie and television industries. As you can see from the photos, the surface detail is amazing, showing every skin surface detail, and is a great casting. I've also included photos of how I painted and finished the casting for my son. The Cast measures 10 and a quarter inches wide by 7 and a quarter inches from chin to forehead. *I have a Life Cast collection of over 250 celebrities, Movie & Television Stars, and historical greats such as Abe Lincoln, George Washington ETC. If you are interested in a list please let me know.

The lifecasts I sell are not mass produced or pre-casted and put in stock. I am a oneman operation and I personally hand cast each life mask per order. Each castmust pass my high standards, no air pockets or surface defects. If I am notsatisfied with the finished cast, I throw it out and start over. It is thisattention to detail and quality control that sets Classicasts apart from thecompetition.

I start withmy original plaster life cast and make a high quality RTV platinum siliconerubber mold. Silicone rubber molds do not shrink, and hold an incredible amountof detail!

My next stepis pouring the cast. Again I use a high grade gypsum cement called WhiteHydrocal. I do not use cheap “casting” or “pottery” plaster. Hydrocal costs alittle more but the results are well worth it. After my first coat of bubblefree Hydrocal has set, I apply a second coat of Hydrocal that is mixed with afiber, much like packing straw. This coat reinforces the cast to make it strongand durable, less likely to chip or break, and it allows the cast to be lightweight. During this final coat a metal wire loop is embedded into the upperback area so the cast is ready to hang on the wall.

I take greatcare in packing all my life casts. This is a very important step to prevent anydamage or breakage during shipping. The life casts are encased in bubble wrapthen suspended in the middle of the box by packing peanuts. The box itself isof a thicker cardboard stock, 200 pounds per square inch in a bursting test.Again I pay a little more for these boxes but it’s worth it to prevent anydamage during shipping. All of my life casts are guaranteed. If the cast isdamaged, lost, or broken during shipping, the buyer has the option to eitherreceive a replacement or be issued a full refund. I stand by all my life casts, and what thebuyer sees in my high definition photos, is exactly what they will get whenthey open the box.

Finally Iwould like to address the subject of Certificates of Authenticity. Because aCOA for a life cast isn’t worth the paper it’s printed on. I can print up myown COA, and make up some lame limited edition number, but that’s not reallyvalid is it? None of the life casts you see for sale are authorized by a moviestudio, or special effects studio. Or for that matter, none of the life castsare approved for sale by the estates of the celebrities represented. These lifecasts make their way to the general public without the knowledge of the moviestudios, special effects shops, or any other points of origin. So don’t befooled by someone issuing a COA or limited edition number with their life cast,as I said earlier it’s not worth the paper it’s printed on. If a life cast doeshave a valid COA or valid limited edition number, you can be sure it will be sellingfor thousands of dollars, not hundreds of dollars….buyer beware.
