Title: Paper Mache Mask
Post by: Sweetpea915 on November 03, 2016 01:14:24 PM
I made a paper mache mask with newspaper. I haven't paper mached anything since High School, but I had a blast.

After pinning a few different ideas, I just went to work and went nuts with the paint... Why not, if I'm goona go scary, I may as well go nuts in the process.

I'm still new, so I can't attach the images to the post.

Anyways, it was an easy, fun and cheap way to make a mask.

Happy crafting  :D

Paper mache always makes me feel young again. Lovely, awesome, ookey, scary mask. I love the layers and layers of paint effect. Awesome.

Woah! This is really creepy. I can't put my finger on it...is it from a certain film? The sewn lips are particularly gruesome. I love it!

It kinda reminds me of Leatherface from the Texas Chainsaw massacre movies.

I wish I had known about this site a couple years ago when I made my own Poison Ivy costume.

I hot glued leaves on a corset and a bathing suit bottom. I ended up wearing a white skirt (that I dyed green over the bottoms though) and hot glued the leaves left over on it too. Threw on green tights, pined a fake vine of leaves to the tights and viola. I can't find the full outfit pic though.  :-\

Your mask has a very fleshy look to it; well done!
