Where to buy "fake" goalie masks for airbrush practice?
This might seem like a weird or funny question, but I'd like to know where to purchase some "fake" hockey goalie masks. I love being creative and I make custom hockey cards, but I'd like to try painting masks.
I'd love to actually paint goalie masks (both by hand and airbrush) but I don't want to waste a few hundred bucks for every paint job I do.
Do you guys have any suggestions?
Thank you and Happy Easter!

I'm not sure what you mean by "fake" but you could buy road hockey masks? A lot cheaper than a ice hockey goalie mask.

A lot of Joke Shops may have the Friday The 13th style of Mask, you know the old Jacques Plante/Gerry Cheervers style. I don't know where you might find lower end newer ones mind you.

A street hockey mask like this one might work for your purposes. You may be able to find a solid whiite/black one if you do some searching on other hockey equipment websites.

Mylec makes a generic white goalie mask for street hockey use that retails for under 40 bucks and if you do a bulk purchase through a company like goalie monkey you can get them even cheaper. However I would like to offer 1 alternative. Vaughn (along with several other companies) make entry level ice hockey masks for about 125ish. If you used one of these masks they are metal. Metal can be chemically stripped of paint very easily using materials found at any automotive store (pep boys, autozone, whatever). So you'd only need 1 mask and paint stripper.

Franklin makes these street hockey masks I am sure you can paint over it. Hope that helps you a little bit.
