Step 3: Padding the face

Now it's time to build up the face, starting with the eye socket and eye brow. This needs to be built large enough to make the previous step look flush with the rest of the face.

Scrunch some kitchen roll into tubes and shapes into bulk. Once you are happy with the position of these shapes then glue them down.

Add some cheeks to the mask, again this is just a scrunched up ball of kitchen roll which is shaped and positioned and finally glued into place.

The nose is more kitchen roll, as an afterthought I would probally use some small hoops on either side of the nose to form the nostril shape (again sorry no picture)

I wish there was more I could say about this step but there isn't. It's very simple. Just add kitchen roll to build up the face in the places you desire it.

<p>can you please make the doll</p>

could you do a tutorial on how to make the base mask even though u bawt it
&nbsp; &nbsp;#<br /> &lt;/3&nbsp;<br /> &nbsp;\/<br /> <br /> <em>(heartbroken)</em>
&nbsp;wait i mean amanda
&nbsp;i think its that bear trap looking mask that sarah wheres in SAW, im not sure wich number though.
i know that it's kinda last minute but i have a party this saturday and really want to make this mask. how did u construct the base mask? i know u used cardboard but how did u get it to mold to your likeness and what kind of cardboard did you use?<br />
I didnt build the base mask I bought it from a local store<br />
&nbsp;can you make a v for vendetta one :-D
i'm a bit confused here...>< do you glue the newspaper to the mask or around the ping pong ball?
I glued it to the mask, so it was about 2mm off of the ping pong ball on all sides.
the saw robot scares me to death so when i saw this a jumped a mile
pleassseee help mee :(
hi the tut is really good but 1 trouble i cant find a mask how do u make it...... i mean the mask without anything on it no detail.. lol PLEASE HELP btw ur good at tuts
I don't understand the 4th step. and how do you put the chin piece back on?
the newspapers absorbs the color ! :|<br/>i used alot of paint and it still aint enough....guess i'll beed another layer of white color.<br/><br/>by the why... to the give the eyes the &quot;poping up&quot; look ,you put them from behind the mask and then glued them or you just put them on the mask ?<br/><br/>thank you =]<br/>
how much time it should take to dry ? i've let it a day to dry and it's not dry yet... :\
It should only take 24 hours, is it possible that you made quite a weak mix of PVA and water?
So a couple things I am confused on: The 1/2 ping pong ball gets glued on the inside of the eye socket with the concave part facing inside, correct? I don't understand how the chin is constructed and kept in place.
The ping pong ball thing sounds right. The chin was constructed as part of the mask, it was then cut out when the mask was thick enough and finished seperately (paper mache to hide the edges etc). It was glued to my own chin for the night using a latex based glue.
I am in the process of making one but with a plastic blank mask and a few different parts. Hopefully I will be able to post pics soon.
Where did you get the base mask from?
This is awesome Thanks
man<sub>u guys love SAW dnt u ppl</sub><br/>
the other mask, phantom of the opera?
no it's the basic cardboard mask
this is an awesome idea (and it great that its cheap!!!) thanks for posting!!
1 last question, do you add definitiion to the jaw b4 you cut it out or after, what do you suggest?
I added mine after. It makes it easier to see where the edges lie exactly. Also you'll need to wrap around the edges once it is cut so you might as well do it all at once.
what do you mean by making it look flush before you add more padding? id be most appreciative for a reply thank you
Adding the fish shape piece of paper around the eye socket leaves a big dent around the eye area. You need to fill this dent before you paper over it.
i wont make a costume but i will make the whole puppet, with the whole head formed and the whole body, when im done ill send you the pics, thank you so much!
ps I'm making the original billy from the saw short film, with the green hat shoes and all
what is your second mask?
now that's a neat one ..but doesn't the puppet have black hair too?
yeh he said hed add a black wig
cool! but get a better camra shal we?
Indeed I would love to get a new one, my old digital camera died, and all my other funds are being channeled into a wedding. I did already appologise for the poor quality though.
oh...sorry didnt see the appologie didnt realy read the whole thing <sup>.</sup><br/>
you know how you said to cut the jaw out peice out of the bottom of the mask ? well if you cut it out how is it going to stay there when you have it on? (and what do you mean kitchen roll?)
I stuck the jaw to my own chin with double sided sticky tape. It worked very well and didnt come loose all evening. I should be updating this shortly with the final photos of me in my suit. Kitchen roll is the absorbant paper towel you use to clean up mess in the kitchen. Paper towels would also do the same, in fact anything that glues with PVA and provides shape will do. I used towels because they are easy to make into any shape you want.
Cool, I never thought I'd like these movies when the first one came out, but it's the plots that gets ya ;). And I seen Saw IV on release night, man that movie is gory...lol. But, then again, they all are :P I also seen Dead Silence, not too bad, those Saw creators sure know how to mess with your mind :P...lol. Too bad Halloween is so close, or I'd probably make this. Good idea ;)
ahah that movie was disgusting! ahah two was good, but IV was just gross... -_-
I saw one for like $20 in a costume shop
