Step 1: Step 1: As Usual...

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.
