In this article we’re going to examine how to make your own dog mask. We’ll cover the basics and then go on to look at a number of the more advanced tips and techniques which you can use.
If you have a dog that likes to bark, and particularly if your dog loves to play in the backyard and other regions of the house, you will need to get them some special dog protection.
Paper Plate 3d Dog Mask DIY Materials: This is the initial part of the set-up that will look a little scary at first, but it is actually quite simple. All you have to do is take a cardboard cutting board and cut the cardboard into the shape of your mask. You can’t just cut a rectangular shape out of the cardboard, so you’ll need to cut around the edge of the mask so that you get something which looks like a cone. The most important thing here is to be realistic with what type of paper plate which you’re using.
Then you will have to wrap the cardboard around the edges of the paper plate, making sure there is a good seal between the two pieces so you can ensure that nothing will leak once you place the mask on. Be sure that the edges are cut so that the edges aren’t sharp, as this may damage the edges of the mask.
Glue it on! The next step involves using some paint. You should spray the dog filter mask paint over the cardboard, making certain it runs smoothly and evenly across the entire mask. You will want to start with one side of the mask , so you can work your way around it before moving onto the other side. The paint has to be slightly thicker than the cardboard, and it is best that you leave about one-third of an inch of paint on the edges so that it runs over the cardboard.
Don’t fret too much about the paint getting stuck to your mask. It’s easy to eliminate it later, and it will leave you with a nice finished mask to show off to everyone! It’s also a good idea to wipe away any excess paint once you are done, so you don’t wind up with smudges or smears on your dog.
Then it is time to paste the mask onto your dog’s head. First you need to be certain that you get a secure fit between the mask and your dog’s head. As soon as you’ve made sure that it is secure, then you can begin to glue the mask onto the dog’s face. Take the piece of cardboard that is used for the base of the mask and fold it over. Be sure that it’s quite strong and then use your hands to secure the cardboard down in place.
Keep your hands out of the way and use tape to hold it in place as you repeat the process on the cardboard folds till you have the mask snugged securely onto the surface of your dog. Don’t make the folds too big or else it could look messy. As soon as you’ve done this, you can then take out the mask and attach the cardboard ears. And attach the other part of the mask onto the dog. Make certain that the ears are level and be sure that it’s not too short or long as this will cause some problems with the mask slipping off the dog’s face.
If you are using a dog mask as your dog protection, you’ll have to do some sanding to make certain it is safe on your dog. You can accomplish it by sanding off any excess paper that may have been removed from your mask.
