So, the most simple in manufacturing are flat cardboard mask. For the manufacture of such masks is required thick cardboard, colored paper and various items for decoration (e.g., foil, rhinestones, shiny self-adhesive tape) and glue a thin rubber band or rope for fastening the mask and scissors. The cardboard is cut to the desired shape of the mask (you can draw it or use a ready template), after which the mask is cut out and glued colored paper (film or foil) and decorated. The edges of the mask apertures for attaching elastics. Such a better way to do goggles, as they don't need the bump, but it looks very mysterious.
To make a mask out of papier-mache will need clay (plasticine), glue, plain paper (e.g. newspaper), cardstock, scissors, brushes, gauze (bandages) and petroleum jelly. First, you need to make the basis for a mask (but you can use ready). For this you can coat the face with vaseline and apply a thick layer of clay. Allow to dry for one hour. Carefully remove, cut holes for eyes and mouth, lay a gauze and leave to dry for about 24 hours. If the clay you can use clay. At this time you can tear the newspaper into small pieces.
The model of the mask before pasting, it is better to lubricate with vaseline. Then carefully put the model pieces of the soaked paper between the layers to glue up. So you need to do 4-5 layers. One or two coats it is better to put thick paper so the mask will be more durable. After that, the mask need to be left to dry well. The dried mask should be primed with a solution of chalk and glue. After the primer has dried the mask can be decorated (paint, glue rhinestones).
Very similar way made the mask from fabric, only instead of pieces of paper used by a variety of cloths which are also lubricated with glue. Masks made of fabric are much easier and nicer to wear than papier-mache. It is possible to make a sheet mask without the use of foundations. To do this, the fabric is cut to the desired shape, the template cut out a few samples, then all samples brahmastra and glued with paste. After that, the mask is dried and decorated. Such masks are made with heart and fantasy easily replace a carnival costume.
