Hello guyz!!! This is redefine craft and I am so very sorry
for not uploading for the past few months. But now I am back with a very interesting
DIY and I hope you will like it. So for this the basic materials are So you
have to start by taking a mixing bowl and adding POP and water, little by little. You have to make sure that the mixture of Pop and water
is not very runny nor very thick. You have to get the right consistency and
till then keep on mixing whatever Pop or water is less. When you get this kind of consistency, your
mixture is ready. Now place the mask on the plate and cover
it with the Pop mixture. Make sure to put the newspaper roll on the
eye cutting of the mask. Spread it evenly and avoid any air bubbles
and let it dry. After drying you just have to just remove the newspaper
roll from the eye cuttings and your mask is ready. Now for decorating, start by colouring it
with a neutral base colour. The lighter the colour the better it is. Now next step is to be creative and draw whatever
you want to draw. Make anything you wish to make and you can
even stick anything you want, flowers or anything you like. So here I went ahead and I wanted to make
a geometrical pattern. With the help of a ruler and pencil, I drew
some horizontal lines and I tried to make horizontal lines at equal distance from each
other and please manipulate around the curvy areas. Next you have to draw slant lines, that too
should be at equal distance from each other. This will provide symmetry to your pattern. Now draw slant lines in the opposite direction. I started with the eye section and then I
went ahead near the cheeks and head portion of the mask. I came up with the idea of drawing geometrical
pattern on one side of the mask. I divided the mask into two portion with a
slant line. Now after this all you have to do is colour
it up. So for this select a combination of 8-10 colours
that go well with each other and just start painting the triangles. Try to pair the colour combinations that go
well together with each other. Also try to cover every area of the mask. You need not worry about the colours getting
out of the border because we will be correcting this afterwards. Make sure that colours go well with each other. Keep doing this till you are satisfied with the
look of the mask. In case you have filled it with many colours,
don’t worry, there are many things that can be done. Like the next step which can mellow down the
colours and the mask will not look overcrowded with colours. So after you are finished this is the first
look. Don’t worry if it looks very colourful, because
the next step is to take the neutral base colour and outline the triangles. This way we are going to correct any colour
that has gone out of border and also this will mellow down the effect of all the colours. For the darker shade if you are not able to
hide the colurs, wait for it to dry and then apply another coat . Also try to avoid any
pencil marks and cover them with base colour. Try to be as neat as possible. So this is the next look that you get. For the second part you can either go ahead
and paint with some golden colour. You can add single shade like this one or
you can go ahead and add another coat to the other side. So after this , it will look like this. But still I was not satisfied with the result
and so I decided to add contrast to the other side of the mask. So instead of making symmetrical patterns,
I made random shapes that were not symmetrical. For the colour scheme, to give it a contrast
look , I went with the colour black. Now start painting it with the black colour
and here also don’t worry about the lines being out of the border. But make sure the slant line dividing the
two sides is done nicely and neatly. Try to find the right balance between the
two colours to give it a good look. But still I felt that it was unfinished and
to give it cohesiveness I used the same base colour and outlined the other side of the mask. In this way you can again correct any colours
that went out of the line and also you can hide the pencil marks. Try to do this as neatly as possible and this
will provide cohesiveness and bring the two sides of the mask together as a whole.
