How to Make Custom Face Masks
Custom Face Masks is fun and easy to make. All you need are a lot of masking paper, markers, and acrylic paint. Of course, the choices for face masking paper vary from paper to paper, but in general, there are three types.
Blank Face Mask – Most people that use these to make custom face masks are kids. You can either purchase blank paper masks that are pre-printed or buy them already blank and ready to go. These work great if you need to practice face shapes before using them to make a custom face mask. You can paint these any color you like.
Patterned Face Mask – These are your standard paper printed face masks. They are usually printed with a particular shape that the customer wants, and they usually come with small pieces of masking paper that can be used to make a patterned mask. The pattern is usually a cartoon of some sort or a black and white pattern. This is one of the more expensive masks to buy, but it’s still a lot cheaper than buying a printed one that you have to print out and take home.
Expanded Printed Face Masks – These are similar to the expanded ones, except they are larger and more elaborate. There are more colors, more patterns, and more detail in them. This is the kind of mask you might find at any store that sells masks and face masks, as well as other things.
One thing to keep in mind is that these are just regular face masks. So, if you’re looking for a very specific custom face mask (for example, if you want your mask to be a cartoon character) you might need to use an expanded printed mask. Also, Expanded printed masks have more patterns, more colors, and more detail in them.
Deciding on a face mask is actually quite simple. When I’m making a custom face mask, I usually take my sketches and sketch them on my computer. Then, I make several different drawings to see what each one of them would look like on the face of a human. After I choose one, I choose a spot to make the mask on the top of my head and cut out a square with my scissors.
After I make my masks, I usually make up a little pattern on the back of each one. This allows me to easily paint them up and it makes for easy removal and replacement. After I’ve removed the old mask and put in the new one, it’s time to test it out and see how it looks.
While you can make custom masks out of just about anything, I tend to prefer to make fun and funny ones that I have a lot of fun making. A lot of fun games I’ve played with my kids involve making a face mask that fits their character. My daughter loves Pokemon, so her custom-face mask is usually the same face that she plays.
