I am located in Australia, as with all my instructables prices are in Australian dollars and store locations are Australian.
Step 1: Introduction
The two types of mask outlined in this instructable are designed to be worn by a male and female. It should be obvious which is which.
A lot of googling was done prior to give us ideas, the main criteria was we wanted masks that shared similar colours, hence, we decided on using a red, gold and black colour scheme.
For mask ideas have a browse through the hundreds of mask examples at MaskaSoo.
Step 2: Equipment
Below lists the equipment used in the making of my masks. Prices and shops are listed.
- masks $2.95
- sequins star 2 sizes gold 20g $3 Crazy Clark's
- Shanghai red spray paint $9.50 Supercheap Auto
- black spray paint
- moulding dowel 6mm 1.8m $2.35 Bunnings
- black feathers 10g $3.49 Spotlight
- large long $3.10
- yellow packet $1.80
- red small single $2
- hot glue gun
Step 3: Cutting the Basic Shape
It is a good idea to keep all lines curvy, as this looks nicer and makes it easier to cut with scissors.
Step 4: Painting
Step 5: Decorating (the Fun Part)
Use a hot glue gun to glue the feathers in place.
We initially had the idea to add a gold border around the female mask with a gold marker, this was tried on the test mask and it was quite messy, hence not implemented on the final mask.
