Picture of Grotesque Paper Fangs
In my first LED Eyelashes Instructable, a few people asked me how I made the grotesque fangs, so I thought I'd make another Instructable to show you how.

Step 1: Print the template

Print the attached template on card stock or stiff paper and cut out triangular fangs. You can make them as long as you like, but I think 10-12 cm (4-5 in) looks best. They all don't need to be the same size, either. If you don't have a printer, you can cut out paper fangs and then use a permanent marker to color it in.

Fold the fang along the black edge. This is to help camouflage where you attach the fangs to your face.

Step 2: Paint your face

Roughly follow the pattern above using black and red face paint. 

Remember to set the grease paint! A lot of people forget to do this so they end up smearing their face paint on their clothes or others. It's easy and only takes about two minutes!

1) Hold your breath and sprinkle a generous amount of baby powder on the paint.
2) Wait 90 seconds
3) Brush off excess
4) Spray your face with a bit of water and gently pat dry to get rid of the chalkiness

Your paint shouldn't smear now or at the very least, it should only smear a bit. 

Step 3: Attach the fangs

Put a line of wig glue or spirit gum along the black edge and let it get tacky. When attaching the fangs, make sure that the black surface faces out.

Starting at your nose, place a fang on each side. If you place a fang in the middle, it will stick out weird. Continue placing one fang right next to the other until you've filled out the upper mouth. Do the same with the bottom.

Once you are done, gently bend a curve into the fangs so that it looks like it's biting. 

Step 4: Final look

It's that easy. It's a perfect last minute costume because all you need is face paint, baby powder, glue, and stiff paper. 

Happy Halloween!
