To make your mask you will need:

  • Printer
  • Copy paper or full-sheet labels (recommended)
  • Glue stick if using copy paper for pattern
  • Cardboard from 4 standard-sized cereal boxes
  • Sharp scissors for cutting cardboard
  • Tape, both clear plastic tape and masking tape
  • Aluminum foil (just a very small amount)
  • Glue gun
  • 33 mm (1.5 in) Styrofoam ball
  • Newspaper strips and paste (or use light-weight brown paper and Titebond III wood glue, like I
    did – recommended)
  • Spray primer
  • Acrylic paint and varnish
  • Artists’ brushes
  • Clear fingernail polish (optional)
  • Black felt. One sheet of 8” x 11” felt is enough for
    several headdress masks.
