This is a reply to an old post, but I couldn't resist.
Yep, we grind chillies and use a facemask too. Here’s a picture of some volunteers that I roped in. I like to remove the stems, break the chillies in half and swish them, crispy, around in a big dry basin, and then grind more of the skins than of the seeds. We grind them in a blender, which works great for large quantities.
Ahhhh... the olden days. When we spoke of uses and materials for face masks...
