Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Step 1: As Usual...
as usual, just print, tape, glue PDF template onto cereal box (or similar thickness paperboard)
you can find PDF & items used from my blog post http://dali-lomo.blogspot.com/2016/01/batman-v-superman-dawn-of-justice.html
Step 2: Step 2: Strapping Tape & Micropore Surgical Tape (3M)
but this time i used strapping (cloth type) tape on the inside, for flexibility & strength.
surgical tape on the outside, because i need this to be very thin & flexible
Step 3: Step 3: Cover the Whole Mask With Surgical Tape
cover it with about 2 rolls of surgical tapes. brush on coats of PVA glue (white glue), surgical tape absorb water & PVA glue, form a strong layer.
see this experiment on how strong pva glue can be: https://youtu.be/CiYMWIwWn1s
Step 4: Step 4: Zipper
the mask is too tight to put on without an opening, so had to use zipper.
Step 5: Step 5: Primer & Black Paint
after primer & black spray paint, it does looks like leather, yay! :)
