How can I paint or add embellishments to these masks?
Crafting with masks is so much fun, and children will love having the opportunity to paint, decorate and embellish their own creations. Most of our masks will be super easy to paint and decorate, yet if you are having difficulties then check out our handy tips below for decorating your mask with flair. 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.
If you are hoping to make a mask that will continue to look amazing for years to come, then we recommend finishing off your piece with a couple of coats of clear varnish, with a spray varnish being the most suitable option. There are so many fabulous embellishments that you can add to masks, and check out the rest of our arts and crafts supplies for even more inspiration. Add feathers, sequins, glitter, paint and more, for a truly vibrant and colourful mask project that your little one is sure to love. However, it is important to remember not to use any heated equipment, such as a hot glue gun, as this could impact upon the structural integrity of some of these products.
Do you have any other tips for making masks?
Whether you are looking to make character masks, animal masks, or just letting kids decorate them as they wish, there are a few things to consider before you begin. 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. Also, any paints or other craft supplies should be non-toxic and washable, and you should ensure full adult supervision. Finally, if you are using spray paints or adhesives make sure that you do so in a well-ventilated area or outside space.
