Instructions


  1. Follow the manufacturers directions to make papier-mâché or use your own mix.
  2. Cover the hump side of the CD-777 Oval Slump & Hump mold with plastic wrap to prevent the papier-mâché product from sticking to the plaster mold.
  3. Roll out the papier-mâché between two sheets of plastic wrap. Place over the mold to form mask. Trim off the excess with a sharp tool.
  4. Roll coils of papier-mâché for the cheeks and hair, and balls for the eyes. Form shapes for the nose, lips, and ears, and attach to the face shape.
  5. Let completly dry before painting.
  6. Using an AB-834 #¾ Base Coat, apply 1 coat of SS-138 Flat Black to the entire mask.
  7. Shake all the Magic Metallic colors well. Place some of each onto a foam plate.
  8. Using an AB-834 #¾ Base Coat, apply 1 coat of MM-105 Gold Metallic. Sporadically mix with some MM-102 Copper Metallic and apply all over mask except the eyes, hair, mouth and cheeks. Allow to dry.
  9. Apply a 2nd coat of MM-105 Gold Metallic and MM-102 Copper Metallic. While still wet, lightly spritz with MM-202 Green Patina.
  10. Mix some MM-106 Steel Metallic with MM-305 Rapid Rust on a foam plate. Apply a wash over the mask.
  11. If you get too much of the patina apply more of the MM-105 Gold metallic and MM-102 Copper Metallic to tone down the Patina.
  12. Using a CB-202 #2 Detail Liner, apply 2 coats of SS-135 White to the eye area. Apply SS-358 Dark Gray Blue to the iris and SS-138 Flat Black to the pupil. Add a highlight of SS-135 White.
  13. Using a CB-404 #4 Pointed Round, apply SS-317 Turquoise and SS-028 Hushed Violet to the cheeks. Lips are SS-028 Hushed Violet and SS-049 Burgundy.
  14. Allow to dry.
  15. Using an AB-834 #¾ Base Coat, apply 2 coats of MM-502 Matte Sealer to the mask.
