Introduction: Your Own Concrete Head Statue (using Paper Mold)

This is a cheaper how to making own statue head. using tissue paper as mold a face and mixed cement for material of statue.

Step 1: Material

1.tissue paper

2.paper glue / non toxic

3.face lotion

4.mixed cement (cement, sand and water)

Step 2: Making a Paper Mold

first facial moisturize all over your face, and then rip-torn tissue paper into small parts, and then apply the glue paper and paste it one by one to the rest of your face to cover all the surface of the face and ears, except for the part of the eye and the nostril.

Repeat the steps above sempai several layers of paper, typically require 5-8 lyers to get a good paper thickness to the mold. wait until the glue completely dries, use a fan or a hairdryer to speed up the drying of paper.

After the paper dries, remove the mold who has become the mask of the your face. be careful when removing the do with slowly so that the printout was good, because we need the rear sections of the mask to be used as a mold.

After leaving aside and get the print mask, cover open parts of ppada mask, such as hollow eyes and nose. How to shut it down by holding it with the hand on the back of the molding and attach the paper that's been given a glue. and wait till it dries

now a your paper face mold is done, and the next stage of printing

Up date (additional notes) : for detail step, for maximal results you should also attach the paper cover your mouth, keep your mouth completely sealed so that no paper that goes into your mouth. same with just your nose everything should be covered except the right dilubang your nose give a little hole so that you can still breathe. and for the eyes, if I do it with a little bit of extreme cases. I immediately shut my eyes with a paper on the State of the eyes closed. but you could let part of the eye is still not closed the paper until the mold so, and you close it when finished prints made.

Step 3: Molding

put the paper into the mold box whose size fit with the mold and give chock on a free space in the box to hold the mold.

then pour the mixture of cement into mold paper need not be full, flatten cement all part mould made approximately 1 cm thick cement from the mold. and wait till it dries.

After the mixed cement is completely dries up, the mold pull out mold and remove the paper from the statue, let the mould is broken because it can only be used one time molding.

the statue you have complete, tidy up when a surface that does not fit the mold of the statue can be mashed using scratch paper.

for the last step, you can paint it gave him details, accesories or left natural it all depends of your creation.

thankyou ^,^ .... Happy creation

may be easiest to mold the mouth, nose, and each eye as separate pieces.

then trim the pieces to fit into the mask holes, and using more strips applied to the outside of the pieces, attach them to the main mask part.

by molding the nose and mouth separately, you always have an open airway, and if working alone on your own mask, doing one eye at a time also lets you see what you are doing, and possibly still see the phone to dial for help if you forget the release agent, and glue your eyelid shut.

Yes this step indeed I didn't had time to document them because in fact I immediately shut my eyes when all paper stuck to my face.so I can not take a picture, because I do it all alone.

I add to this step on you, for maximal results you should also attach the paper cover your mouth, keep your mouth completely sealed so that no paper that goes into your mouth. same with just your nose everything should be covered except the right dilubang your nose give a little hole so that you can still breathe. and for the eyes, if I do it with a little bit of extreme cases. I immediately shut my eyes with a paper on the State of the eyes closed. but you could let part of the eye is still not closed the paper until the mold so, and you close it when finished prints made.
