Hey Instructabots!

I'd like to present to you a guide for making a Majora's Mask Replica from the Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask! From start to finish, this project took about three months to complete, but if I needed to do it over again it could probably be done in less than a month. Much of the time between steps was spent waiting for materials to arrive in the mail. Also, I spent lots of time thinking about the best way to complete each step in the process so that the final product would look as authentic as possible.

My inspiration for a Majora's Mask replica came from a few sources, but the main thing that kept me going through the building process was looking at all of the attempts that people have made in the past to make an authentic Majora's Mask. There were really only a few that I found that were decently authentic and none of those individuals were willing to sell a cast...sad face. I think that the Majora's Mask is one of the most iconic symbols of evil and of the adventure that millions of gamers (including myself) took over a decade ago.

In order to create your own Majora's Mask, you're going to need a whole bunch of stuff!----
Smooth-On Rebound 25 Trial Kits (x2)
Smooth-On Rebound 40 Trial Kits (x1)
Smooth-On Smooth Cast 65D Resin (1 gallon)
2 Gallons of Plaster of Paris
A 4'x1'x1" piece of soft wood (I used pine)
Sculpey Terra Cotta (about 2 pounds)
Melamine (2" square should do)
3M Bondo Autobody filler
3M Glazing Putty
Several cans of the cheapest primer you can find (mine was $1.50/can at Walmart. You want it to come out thin and dry fast!)
Three feet of 1/4" Polyurethane tubing
Wooden dowels (3/8")
Hot Glue
Acrylic Lacquer (I used Dupli-color)
A 3" Clear Plastic Christmas Tree Ornament (Found mine at a Hobby Lobby)
Sandpaper, and lots of it--(40, 80, 100, 150, 180, 300 grit)

I tried to for each step list the tools that I used. Since this project took me a few months, I may have forgotten something, but I'm pretty sure it's all there. Let me know if there's any confusion.

Thanks for taking a look at my second Instructable! Hope you're able to use it effectively as a guide!

Step 1: Building and Shaping a Wooden Base

I started making Majora's mask by laminating 2 pieces of 3/4" heart-shaped pine together and ripping away the square edges with my belt sander (40 grit) and forming a smooth curve around all sides.  After I had formed a shape I was happy with, I felt like the overall thickness was a little slim so I ended up laminating another 3/4" heart-shape to the bottom of my 1 1/2" heart and reshaping the entire thing (ending thickness = 2 1/4").    After a thorough sanding with some higher grit paper (150 grit), I gave the entire mask a thin covering of glazing putty.  After letting it dry for a few hours, I used 180 grit sandpaper to remove excess glazing putty and smooth the entire base.  I then repeated the glazing putty covering, this time only in areas that had visible scratches or dents.  I gave the mask another several hours to dry and used Rust-Oleum Gray Filler Primer to give a nice thin coat.  
<p>i want one of these but without the things blocks my eye so i can see something and use the mask too</p>
<p>Hey can you see and breathe through it?</p>
<p>Is this hallow or wearable?</p>
<p>im a bit of a noob when it comes to this but i still wanna know, how did you curve the wood into the right shape in step 1?</p>
<p>The craftsmanship on this is jaw dropping. Attention to detail and meticulous work and patience turned out a perfect product. Incredibly impressive. This looks flawless on every level.</p><p>Just out of curiosity what does the back look like?</p>
<p>WOW, spectacular detail. Amazing tutorial. I loved this game, and you hit the ball out of the park with this one, its perfect. Thank you!</p>
