It’s almost Halloween, and finding a costume that will fit your child might become a daunting task. Instead of running from store to store, why not make your own? Here are directions to make a simple Spider-Man mask, which could also be used as a template to making many other superhero masks.
What you will need:
- A red pullover-type ski mask with two eye holes, but no mouth
- Black fabric paint
- Paint brushes
- A balloon
- A comic book or something to reference
Blow up the balloon and tie it to a stable object. Then, place the ski mask over the balloon. Now use the brushes to apply the black paint. Look at your references, and try to reproduce what you see there. Let your mask dry. Then remove it from the balloon. Since the paint may have adhered to the balloon, you may have to pop it.
