Anyway, after about 20 minutes of work, I had made my first slipknot mask. It looks better than it does in the pictures, but I the flash made it look weird. There are a few dings here and there that I will take into consideration for my future masks.
If you make a mask, I would like you to show me it on the comments. It would be fun to see your own version of it.
Anyway, I hope you have fun if you make a mask and please feel free to comment and rate.
Step 1: Supplies
Foil If you don't have at least 4 feet of foil, you will have to buy more.
Leather I found an old leather jacket and cut up the leather from that.
Zipper (optional) For my mouth I used some of the zipper from the old jacket, but you can do whatever you want.
Sewing Needle Get a large one for it will have to be sharp to sew up the mask.
Thread You will need thread the same color as your leather and some red thread as well.
Scissors A large, sharp pair is recommended.
Newspaper For the paper mache part.
Flour You will need 1/3 cup of flour.
Water You will need 1/2 cup of water.
Glue I used a glue stick.
Depending on what you want your mask to look like, you may use some other items.
Step 2: The Base Mask
Next, bite onto the foil where you mouth would be. This keeps the foil in place while you mold it around your face. Be sure to give detail to where you nose is and where you eyes are. Fold any extra foil around you chin and sides of your head.
Take the Base Mask off and with scissors cut out the shape you want your mask to be. With an exact-o knife (oops, I left that out of the supplies), cut out the eye(s). I made one eye. I chose to put it on the left so I'd get a good view of the guitar neck. You can use the exact-o knife to cut out a mouth.
Step 3: The Outer Mask
Stick the newspaper in the paper mache and strip off any excess paste. The more paste left on the paper, the longer it will take to dry. Put the mask on a piece of wood or sheet of paper and put the paper mache strips on the mask. Smooth the newspaper out on the mask. Be sure to go around the eye(s) and mouth if you made one. Be sure to paper mache each side.
Step 4: Comforting the Mask
Next, cut out a piece of the zipper and glue it onto the mask where the mouth is. Then sew it on.
