Female Neutral Training maskThe Neutral Masks were tested at American Academy Male Neutral Theatre Training maskof Dramatic Arts here in New York, NY. They are effective. One thing about sculpting neutral masks is, it is an on going process. These Neutral Masks will be male and female Series #4 and I am continuing to sculpt the two neutral masks and will come out with neutral masks male and female Series #5 sometime in the future. Most neutral mask colors are available.
