What are you wearing for Halloween? Is your costume full already? To complete your outfit, do you need a mask? Try to find it or shop at your local store on the internet. But you can render them if you don't find a mask that fits your taste! I will teach you how:
Step 1: The first step is to prepare a mold from a plastic mask shaped like a human face or monster face for the mask that will be made. You can find them online or at your local stores.
Step 2: A plastic bag or plastic wrap protects the plastic mask
Step 3-Render the paper pulp with a combination of 500 ml of water and 10-15 sheets of large unused newspaper, then dissolve the unused newspaper into the water, swirl it until combined, and have a porridge-like texture.
Step 4-Place the mixture of paper porridge on top of the mask and shape it into the desired mask shape, or you can also check on the internet for reference photos of your inspired Halloween mask.
Step 5-Then wait for the mask to dry for about 1 day (you can dry it under the sun for a faster process) to prepare Halloween masks for coloring later.
Step 6- After that, paint the mask and let it dry with white paint for the base color.
Step 7-And then you can paint your mask as you like or according to the reference picture you have and your Halloween mask is finally ready to be used to scare or impress people while trick or treat!
