Good question. I think the solid gold mask was made oout of what they call "beaten gold".
I'm not sure, but I think that means that the metal workers used instruments to pound it into shape.
Wonder if they used some type of mold to pound it into though.

The way it might have been possible also, is pouring melted gold into a mold. I know in Sumer they had furances that were powered by the oil fields around the neighboring area. Egypt may have had some furances where gold could be melted.
