Do you have any tips for making masks?
Mask making is fun for children and adults of all ages, and painting face masks can be a great way to express themselves creatively. To help the paint to stick, rough up the surface slightly with sandpaper or spray with plastic-fusion spray paint in white. If you are looking to paint your mask, it is recommended to prepare it first by covering it with a coat of gesso or primer. When you have finished painting your mask, spray your final piece with clear acrylic spray or varnish, this will help it to stay looking amazing for longer. There are so many different embellishments that you can use when you are creating masks. Stock up on glitter, feathers, sequins, gems, ribbons and more for tons of different ways of transforming your masked creation.
Is there anything else I need to remember?
If you are doing arts and crafts with young children, always check the recommended age for each supply. We would like to remind customers that masks are not suitable for children under the age of three as they contain smaller parts that may pose a choking hazard. Any paints or other craft supplies should be non-toxic and washable, and you should ensure full adult supervision. If you are using spray paints or adhesives, make sure that you do so in a well-ventilated area or outside space.
