Since this weeks video is such a technically ‘simple’ tutorial I though I would also show you the easiest way in the world to decorate your mask at the same time.
If you just want something simple and quick to make this is the perfect mask
Obviously you have to start out with a plain mask (DIY video bellow). After that take any clear nail varnish, any brand will do, and cover the whole mask in it.
This part is very important because if you don’t have a clear nail varnish, or rather any kind of nail varnish under it, the crackle polish won’t crack.
You could paint the mask black and use a gold or white crackle varnish?
For this mask I used the Barry M crackle paint, I haven’t used that nail varnish for months because it got insanely gloopy barely a month after I had bought it so this was the perfect way to use it up.
I will be using this masquerade mask technique for a lot of future tutorials. So though it might seem like a bit of a borring thing to cover, I’d rather cover the basics in one video and have people reference that rather than show the whole process in each video.
Also, even though I’ve only shown how to make a typical mask you can just as easily make a full-face mask too using the exact same method I’ve shown you in the video bellow.
I will be doing a few different variations on how to make a basic masquerade mask, but for the moment here is the simplest version.
