Hey guys this is a little project i've been working on.
I saw a video on how to do this and I thought I would give it a try.
For my first attempt it didn't turn out too bad.
Basicly you take a cheap knockoff Hockey mask and transform it into a legit copy of the real thing.
Here's some step by step pictures of the transformation.
1. Buy a cheap hockey mask. I bought a whole bunch for 2 dollars apiece at my local family dollar.
Basicly the first step is to shape the mask more like what we see in the movie.
You do this by running a close hanger through the mask. Then rub it with sandpaper.
I actually held the closeline in for a whole night.
Then in the morning you place the mask in its posistion (with the hanger) in your oven for 5-6 minutes. Be CAREFUL though!
I melted more mask then I would like to admit doing this. (though my crazy sister in law had come by too and was just blah,blah,blah
After that, you basicly spary paint your mask black. Let dry.Go over it with white.
After this its time to add your red marks.
This was a reallly bad free hand,but I was just thankful I had gotten that far.
Add finish gloss to the mask and add any additional embellishments you want.
Here's my finished mask.
I added some brown around the mask to give it a gritty look.
I also highlighted the holes with black.
I don't have a drill gun,so sadly I can't add the additional holes the real mask has yet. Though in just a few hours you can really pimp out a $2 mask.
I've seen some people make so really kick ass mask doing this.
Just thought I would through this out their if anyone wants a cool Halloween project to undertake.
Here's a youtube video that describes it in full detail.
