dressing up and having fun is all about the season that is coming to hand…. why not make a fabric mask for your party?
To make the above mask you will need:
- a plain full face plastic mask (this will be your mold) – got mine for $2 at 2cheep shop.
- fabric Scissors
- a over the eye mask template – mine I made ages ago from a flat party mask with clear packaging.
- fabric stiffener
- fabric glue
- disposable gloves
First cut out your mask base from your chosen fabric.
second put your gloves on and put a blob of fabric stiffener into a container and put your cut out mask in it making sure it is saturated.
Third take your fabric mask and drape it over the plastic mask over the eye part. And flatten it out as much as you can. Then leave it for about 2 and a half hours or until completely dry.
Fourth…. now is the time to decorate – I first cut the eye holes out by tracing the holes in the plastic full face mask then cut them out carefully. Then started decorating with cut out strips of fabric, tear drop shapes, and fibers…. here is where your imagination can run wild!
did you know that Jacquards 3D Lumiere is a great fabric adhesive?
and you end up with a fabulous mask you made yourself!
now go out with pride and wear your wonderful mask… wonderfully shaped to fit your face too!
