shock-mask nightmare before christmas

With Shock’s mask, I decided to try a different technique using paper clay. While it doesn’t look half bad, between the paper mache Lock Mask and this one, I prefer the results from using paper mache.

You will need:

  • Cardboard (I used the curved edge of an empty oatmeal container)
  • Tinfoil
  • Cotton balls (or any soft substance to give shape to the nose)
  • Hot glue
  • X-acto knife or box cutter
  • Paper Clay
  • Rolling pin
  • Green acrylic paint & paint brush

Instructions:

1. Start by cutting a piece of cardboard in the shape of shock’s face, with a flat top, long face, and rounded chin. I used half of a cardboard oatmeal container, which is thin, sturdy and curved. Cut out two small eye holes using an X-Acto knife or box cutter.

2. Make the shape of Shock’s nose out of tinfoil and stuff with cotton balls to hold the shape, then hot glue onto the mask.

3. Roll out a piece of paper clay so you have a thin layer to lay over the mask. Press down firmly and use the knife to cut out the clay over they eyes. Allow to dry completely according to package instructions.

You may see some cracking in the clay, as I did. This is why I really wasn’t a fan of the paper clay. You can use small amounts of the clay and press it into the cracks in the dried mask.

4. Paint a solid green color, and that’s it! Finish the look with my take on a DIY Shock Costume.
