Watch these videos to see how to create your Minotaur Headdress Mask:

Watch this first video to see how to tape the Minotaur Headdress mask together, and add foam balls for the eyes.

Watch this next video to see how I added paper mache to my mask using brown paper that comes stuffed in amazon.com boxes. Newspaper works, too – you don’t have to use brown paper. This video also shows how I painted my Minotaur right over the sealed paper mache, so the brown shows through for his fur. This is an easy way to paint fur, but the glazing liquid will really slow down the drying time. Of course, you can paint your Minotaur any way you want to. :)

To Make Your Minotaur Mask, You’ll Need:

  • The Pattern
  • Access to a Printer
  • Copy paper or full-sheet labels (I always use the labels)
  • Glue stick if using copy paper instead of the labels
  • Cardboard from 6 standard-sized cereal boxes or 12 letter-sized sheets of light chipboard.*
  • On 1.25″ foam ball for the eyes
  • A small amount of aluminum foil
  • Sharp scissors
  • Clear plastic tape and masking tape Note: Don’t use disappearing gift wrap tape – it isn’t strong enough.
  • Paper strips and paste, or use Titebond III Wood Glue for a stronger mask
  • Acrylic paint or spray paint, and varnish
  • Shoelaces or elastic straps to hold the mask in place while dancing

* If purchasing cardboard in place of the cereal boxes, it will be sold as “light chipboard.” Medium or heavy chipboard is too stiff to bend well.

        • You’re right – the cow was one of my first patterns, and I didn’t make a how-to video for the taping, like I did for the Minotaur. The pattern does come with full instructions, with a photo of every part as it’s being taped on, but I’ll put a new video on my to-do list. Thanks for mentioning it. :)
