Glow in the Dark Masks

What perfect timing!  I was lucky enough to be sent a pack of fun new Glow in the Dark Dimensional Paint from Tulip and iLoveToCreate to show you this week!

With Halloween coming up soon I decided to try out a fun project I saw on pinterest.

Halloween, DIY Mask, Glow in the dark, Puffy Paint, Dimensional Paint

Here's what you need:

-Tulip Glow in the Dark Dimensional Paint
- lace, netting, or other lightweight fabric
-glue gun and hole punch (not shown...because I ALWAYS forget to include at least one thing in the materials photo!)
-mask template and plastic wrap

1) I'm never very sure of my own artistic skills so the first thing I did was download a couple of different Halloween mask templates.  If you're a little more creative though, you can just make your own on a piece of plain white printer paper.

2) Tape your template down to your table and then tape some plastic wrap down on top of it.  This will stop the paint from seeping through your material, onto your paper, and possible through to your table.

3) Tape a piece of very fine, lightweight fabric over top of the plastic and the template and tape down.

4) Start with the outline of your mask and draw along the lines with your dimensional paint.  One of the best things about the paints I tested were the lovely fine tips.  It took a little practice but eventually I was able to get some very nice lines.

5) Let your paint dry overnight.  When your paint is completely dry, cut along the outside edge.  Then cut inside the eye holes.

6) Use your hole punch to create a hole on each side to slip some ribbon into.

7) Cut two pieces of ribbon, glue or tie to each side of the mask and then tie around your head.

So easy!  And it looks super cool when you're in the dark!

My niece and nephew had fun trying their masks on too~

That mask turned out truly creepy. It looks like skin - great job. I have never tried this product.
