Making Masks with Silver Foil Card

It’s been a while since I tried making masks using foil card. Early on, I made some silver Aliens – they turned out less than satisfactory.
Something I had forgotten about reflective silver masks, is that they’re completely rubbish to photograph. I’m hoping that this blog post will serve as a reminder to me.

This is how the finished masks turned out, they look much better on a person than in my wood store.

I started by making the mistake of using some foil card which I had put to one side because it’s too thin but having already bonded the pattern to it, I decided that I would reinforce it with tracing paper (that’s the green colour that you see on the inside).

The foil card is a bit thin, so to reinforce it, I use tracing paper.
