Well masks are very easy to do. Once you have made your first mask you will find that with very simple adjustments a single mask design can easily become so many different masks. Below are some simple masks i have made & am working on.
This is a mask one of my elder sons asked me to make for him to wear whilst attending a particular party at a night club. Even though it's made from paper mache he asked me if i could make it look like black leather. He also wanted to wear it as much as possible without having to worry about breathing or sweating in it. So he asked if i could fit in some air vents in the front sides. Both requests were very simple to accomplish once he gave me his design for the mask. The air vents are to the front on both sides & are simply heavily meshed material which once painted to match the mask blended in rather well. Black water based paints mixed with PVA glue then coated twice in a clear glass spray gave the paint a deep leather look & feel too when touched. Not knowing it was not real leather was hard to determine unless you looked inside the mask or saw it being made.
This is a set of masks i have been messing around with on a casual basis. Rarely having the time to do anything worth while with them until recently when the mask making bug took hold again. ALL three masks shown here are made from the same black mask on the right. The tricks i will be showing you how to make & then alter identical copies of a single mask are extremely simple to do & yet you can make so many variations it's mind boggling.
To prepare for this feature i have started on some demon skull masks too. Seen here below. The coloured mask on the bottom right is still undergoing it's transformation but more about that later. The other three are merely blanks i will be using in this feature to show you how simple it really is to do.
