Step 1: Hang the Mask Vertically on Something Steady.

Hang the mask vertically on something steady.
(So the dripping hot glue drips down.)

Proceed with caution to make small drips on the mask ( little dots, large drips and small lines or some pattern, of your choice? Let your imagination go wild!

Check this Oddly satisfying hot glue drip while making my mask ^_^

Let the hot glue dry (3-5min.)

Step 2: Turn the Black Light (UV Light) On!

Turn the Black light (UV light) on, to see what you've created!

When you turn the Black light on the mask really comes to life!

Scare some people!! ^_^

Hang it on a wall, put it on a scarecrow on your front lawn.

Make many and decorate your house, improvise, stay safe and have fun ^_^

    This is sweet! So did you use just normal glue gun glue sticks or are these ones colored or what makes it so they glow under the black light?

    Yes, I just
    used normal glue gun glue sticks ^_^ some will glow more some will glow less
    under a UV light, what I did was take a black light led pen and check which one
    glow better in the store before baying any.

    I never knew hot glue glowed in black light. New possibilities.
