Default Decorated Mask Ideas?

I was just wondering, has anyone decorated a plastic full face mask before? If so, what sticks best? How did you do it? I have to make one for a swap I am in and am not happy with it yet. I found I could put acrylic paint on it but the paint dissolves when I put other water based things on it of course.


Looking for some inspiration

I did a paper one, its in my gallery. As far as glue goes on plastic, that's a tough one. I would probably use gel medium. I would probably stamp on paper first and make it more of a cut and paste project.

Let us know how it is going and what works and what doesen't. Good luck.

Thanks for that, Stacy. I am still trying to figure out the galleries. Just had a quick look but could not find yours?

I have been thinking about using torn napkins on the mask. I tried acrylic paint and am not sure i like it. Will surely take a photo and post it when it is done.

If you need to stick to plastic...3D crystal glaze or diamond glaze...or art glitter has one that sticks to acrylic sheets so should work and you could apply glitter or paper with that.

You could paper mache over it.

Miracle Tape (vivalasvegastamps) (or red line) double stick tape is wonderful...for embelishments.

Feathers are always great for masks because they are light weight.

When I made my mask from Creative Paperclay® I used Crystal Lacquer to a paint and adhere to it.

Crystal lacquer sticks to plastic, metal, pretty much anything. It's great stuff! You can also use it to make things look 3D.

My dh sat in on a SteamPunk lecture from a Hollywood prop maker and he suggests avoiding superglue because it will crystalize in 2 years against plastic. He favors two part exoxy the cheap kind you pick up at places like walmart. Now I imagine he was talking more about steampunk weapons, nerf-guns getting all fancy but good info on the glue ideas from one with lots of experience. Plastic masks are not the same thing. You could also put paper mache over a plastic mask...ie white glue thined with water and strips of newsprint or tissue paper for texture would be fun too. Or torn pieces of masking tape and antique it to look like leather? Oh you can have so much fun! I hope you remember to take a picture and share with us your results!
