  • To get started, download the template above.
  • Step 1Copy the head piece template provided onto a piece of cardboard and cut out.
  • Step 2Attach the cardboard to the forehead of your mask using glue.
  • Step 3Begin painting by giving you mask a coat of black paint. Allow to dry.
  • Step 4Sketch out your design onto a piece of paper before you start to decorate your mask. Look to our mask design for inspiration or come up with your own.
  • Step 5Once you have a design, transfer it lightly onto your mask using a pencil. This is not essential, but helps with planning your design.
  • Step 6Add detail to your mask by creating dot patterns over your design. Place the end of your cotton filter into the paint and dab it onto your mask.
  • Step 7Cut a length of elastic long enough to wrap around your head. To finish, tie the elastic to each side of the mask.
