Now that I've introduced the concept of "paper-machie" into instructables, I may as well as teach how you can use this art to make halloween props/costumes.
1. Old newspaper (both to protect and shred)
2. Flour, Water, and food coloring (to make the paste)
3. A model (face)
4. Tin foil
5. Vegetable oil (vaseline), if you plan on using your face
6. Coffee Stirrers
8. Oven and timer
9. Spoon and containers
To make the needed "paste", follow this link: http://www.instructables.com/id/EPR5682U3QES9J6PBK/
Step 1: Paper-Machie the face
1. If you're using something non-living, like I am, cover the face with tin foil and make sure to press the foil in to capture the details of the face.
2. Slather the paste on the model (if you're using a person, dip the strips of paper into the paste and apply. Make sure the paste is warm cause it gets uncomfortable after a while when it starts becoming cold).
3. Take the strips of paper and apply them to the face. Make sure to press them into the crevices to capture as much detail as possible. After you've completely covered the face, add another 2-3 layers to build a stable structure (if you're using the model, you can get away with putting only two layers on, but you need to keep the foil on the back).
4. Now if you opted to use a person, you'll have to wait for the paste to dry. But if you used the model, you can carefully peel the foil off and place it in the oven at 335 degrees (F) for 10-15 minutes.
5. Living Model: Once the paste is dried, you can carefully peel the mask off of your friend's face and trim the edges. Non-Living Model: Take the mask out of the oven and trim away the edges.
Now either you can take out some paints and paint your mask or continue on to make the "waxy" face...
