Masks are fun and easy to make. This is a step by step tutorial which will show you how to make the typical black eye mask for your next masquerade party. Let’s begin.
Glimpse of the Result:
For this you will need:
- Chart paper
- Sparkle Glue
- Plastic gems or rhinestones
- Thread or string
Take a rectangular piece of chart paper. This should be suitable for the mask you would be making. A paper of length 18 to 20 cms should be suitable for an eye mask for an adult.
Fold the paper in two halves.
Draw the mask outline for one eye on the folded paper.
Cut the chart paper along the outline made.
Paint the eye mask in the base color of the mask. I’ve painted the mask using black acrylic color.
Using glue, paste rhinestones around the mask like an outline. Use a different plastic jewel of appropriate color at the center.
Make a design around the eye using silver sparkle glue.
Allow it to dry for some time.
Punch a hole at both ends of the mask.
Tie a string at both the ends.
Alternatively, you can make a silver stick and attach it to the mask to hold it instead of attaching a string. You can experiment with different styles and colors. Feathers and glitter can be used to make it more appealing to suit your style.
