Of all my vintage Halloween goodies, my collection of plastic masks are my favorite. I love the neon colors, the goofy monsters and sometimes I am even lucky enough to find them still in the box. The thing is the masks are very fragile so not very many survived from the 70’s. This ‘rare’ aspect makes me love them even more. It also makes me want to supplement my collection by making my own.
Plastic craft mask
Air dry clay
Plastic mask forms are easy to find during Halloween. In the off season they can be located at most large craft chains. Cover your mask with plaster wrap. The masks are plastic and slick so this gives the clay something to stick to.
Allow the clay to dry overnight and sand rough edges.
Paint your shadowbox black.
