Corvo's Mask Completed


Can you make this Corvo's Mask? You sure can! Here is one made by Alexander! He used twine and it looks fantastic! My thanks go to him for sending in the picture!!!









And here is one made by TheSeance0004. My thanks go to him for sending in the picture!









Paper mache base for maskFirst, start off with your paper mache. Find a good base for the mask. In this tutorial I use a mannequin head for the base, however if you do not have one lying around you can make a base out of cardboard and newspaper. Use several layers of paper mache until you have a nice hardened face shape. For this tutorial I lined my paper mache base with aluminum foil in order to make it easier to remove when done.




If you don't have some kind of a mannekin head that is quite ok. Cut a piece of cardboard or foamboard about the size of a head. Then tape crumpled newspaper to it to form a half head shapejust like intis picture.Now you can use that to paper mache your mask.





Smoothing edges of maskAlthough, this is not required I added one last layer using a paper mache mix of half glue, half water in order to solidify the mask a little more. Also, you can use sand paper to smooth out any rough edges. It does not have to be perfect though, as the paint will fill in some of the gaps.





Tracing the features of Corvo's Mask

Next, trace out where you are going to cut the mask. Cut the features first before cutting the mask into the two pieces. When making your eye holes keep in mind that when the mask is split in half they will become further apart.





Cutting out the features of Corvo's Mask








Pre punching the holes for the wiresWhen you have everything cut out and separated It's time to do the wire work. You're going to want to pre punch holes in order to put the wire though. Trace out the areas and use an awl or something similar to punch the holes. For this tutorial I used a leather hole puncher, which is effective if the mask gets too thick to puncture with a normal tool.





Corvo's Mask wire workUse wire cutters and plyers in order to "weave" the wire through the holes you created. Try your best to bend the ends of the wire into the mask so that it does not scratch your face.






Here's Part 2 of the tutorial
