Step 1: Create the Shape

To create the outline of the mask, use clay to form the desired shape. Let it dry.

Step 2: Grease the Clay

Once the clay is dry, use vaseline to grease the entire form generously. This will make sure it is easy to peel off the mask later.

Step 3: Add the Paper-mache

To create the paper mache layers, take strips of newspaper and soak them in liquid glue. Then layer the stips over the clay. Do this until you have 8-10 layers and then let it dry completely.

Step 4: Adjust the Mask

feUse a fork to peel the mask of the clay mold. then neaten the edges by trimming them with regular scissors. To finish cut out one eye with an exactor knife.

Step 5: Paint the Mask

Paint the mask with black and white stripes. I would recommend acrylic paint for doing this. Remember: Kurona has verticle stripes and Nashiro has horizontal stripes.

    if you sanded the masks before painting you could get a much better finish on them, bondo would help too as it would help to create a smother surface for the mask.
