Dog mask with own hands
After reading this article, you can make yourwith the help of a beautiful dog mask, which can be worn at a carnival or a children's party. You will learn several ways of making - from paper, felt and polymer clay. So, let's get started.
Paper Dog Mask on the head
Make this mask is simple enough. You will need thick colored paper or cardboard, glue, scissors. If there is no color paper, then you can take a simple and paint it later with its paints, markers or pencils. You can use the template that you see below.
First, cut out the brown cardboard silhouettemuzzles. Then from pink, make a triangular nose and mouth. Make slits for the eyes. From the black cardboard, make the eyebrows. Glue all the parts together. A dog mask made of cardboard is ready! Now you only need to sew or glue the elastic band to attach it to your head.
There are many options for making such a mask. In addition, you can make a three-dimensional muzzle if you make it out of triangles, which then glue together.
Felt mask of the dog with your own hands
To make masks, it is better to buy a thick anddense felt, since such material will be less scraped and better to sit on the head. You can use the template that is shown above, or draw your own, for example, as in the picture below.
First, cut out the muzzle from the brown feltdogs. You can immediately sweep the edges so that they become stronger. Make large slits for the eyes. Then, from the beige felt, make stains around the eyes (so you will emphasize the look). Then embroider with a brown thread the nose or also make it out of felt. It is worth noting that the mask itself is better made from thick and dense felt, eyes and nose can be made from thin. On the wrong side, sew an elastic band or two strings to fix the mask on the head. The mask of the dog from felt is ready! If desired, you can make a bang on the head of an artificial fur.
How to make a dog mask from polymer clay
Make a dog mask from polymer clay muchmore difficult and more costly than paper or felt. But the result is worth it. First make a muzzle shape from papier-mâché. The form should be thick enough that it does not become loose during molding. Then take the clay and roll it into a thin pancake with a thickness of not more than four millimeters. Attach the resulting layer to the papier mache shape and smooth it. Clay should sit tightly on a mask of papier-mache. If somewhere the stratum is torn, then fill the resulting holes with plastic. Smooth out all irregularities. At this stage, also make the texture of the wool with a toothpick or an awl. Tint the mask with powder for clay, dry pastel or shadows. Make holes on the sides. Put it in the oven for half an hour or an hour. Remove the mask and allow it to cool. Now, if you want, you can paint the mask with paints (it's better to take acrylics).
Spread the product, grind the irregularities, if any. Tie the rope or elastic to the holes. The mask of the dog is ready! If desired, you can supplement it with artificial fur.
