This is a follow up on my cardboard, duct tape, and newspaper stunt dummy instructable. The dummy will work fine, but as you can tell, it's missing a head!
Here is how to make "realistic" head for free.
(Unless you need to go buy duct tape. In that case, go get it, I'll wait.)
Step 1: Get the Design
If you don't feel like making one, print this one out. My head is pretty average. Measure your head with a ruler, put this picture is Publisher or something, and make the head the size of your head.
Next, cut out the design and trace it on a piece of cardboard. The cardboard shouldn't be too thick.
Step 2: Making It "3D"
First, cut a line into the cardboard half way from the bottom on one part, and half way from the top on the other. Then slide them together. (Look at the pictures)
Step 3: Adding the Next Layer.
Cut out a shape that is a little smaller than the shape of the front, and without a neck. Then do the same thing to make it 3D, but cut the line on the forehead instead of at the neck. (Pictures help)
Step 4: Filling It With Paper
Step 5: Do the Rest.
I used one big ball for each side of the back of the head, and then little ones to fill the gaps. This part is really up to you, and it depends how big the paper is too. I used the New York Times, and those are big pages.
Covering up the newspaper with duct tape makes it look better. It also wastes duct tape. To what you think is right.
Step 6: The Face
I started with the nose, and then the cheeks, and then the chin. You can do what you want. Try using different sizes of news paper.
Step 7: Admire Your Work!
As you can see with the pictures, mine was pretty close.
Next time, painting it, and attaching it to the stunt dummy's body!
