How do I stiffen fabric as well as shape it and make it stay the shape I choose? Answered

I want to make a masquerade mask. The kind with a stick and huge feathers on the side. The expensive ones online say they use cloth for the actual mask part. HELP!

thanks for the ideas. I really don't know if I can do the fabric. It sounds like it might be too tough. I didn't want to do it but I may have to resort to buying this kind of mask. UGH!

It's really a lot easier than it sounds. Give it a shot. If you really don't want to use fabric, try tissue paper instead. The tissue dries faster than fabric, and it's easier to get it to shape well, but you just need a few more layers.

I've never done it, but I would probably try making a paper mache mold and then use a spray-on adhesive to glue and shape the fabric to the mold.
