How to Make a Robot Mask Tutorial
Art teachers are always being asked to just "whip up" something for someone.
It could be to screen print t-shirts for the cross country team,
make a gigantic fly for a sketch on assembly (true story)
or in this case 12 robot masks for a drama competition.
So even though it is school holidays,
this is what I've been up to.
Begin with a generic paper mask like this one.
They cost about $1 (or less) from art stores.
Grab a pencil and mark out your areas as below.
Get a kraft knife and cut out the eyes
(be careful, your goal is
to retain your own eyesight and all of your fingers).
With silver acrylic paint,
brush on the eyes, center head and sides of the cheeks.
Mix silver and blue paint together to paint the other areas.
Use black paint and a smaller brush
to define the feature areas.
Use a cotton bud to dot on 'rivits'
I used off-cut stickers from Reverse Garbage
to create the central detail on the forehead or you could paint something similar.
Too easy- look and it doesn't have to be perfect.
And you could add more, or less as you desire/require.
Metropolis x 12 and now...
to tackle the astronaut helmets.
