I saw this mask in the store and though that's a pretty decent Batman Mask, could I Steampunk it?
Yes I can.
So here's the Mask I started off with. the background is actually two types different tissue paper with different prints that I'm going to use on it. I took off the stretch elastic used for wearing as I dont want in the way during my process, but saving to add back later
I 'primed' the mask with some white paint, just cause the tissue paper is a little see through. So instead of putting several layers of more expensive paper, I can make sure that the print shines through by starting off with a white mask.
Next, Mod Podge the crap out of the mask. WO Ha Ha Ha Ha. I used my own home made Mod Podge (water and white glue, why spend so much money for Mod Podge when it's just a White Glue with a fancy label).
Add back the strap and vola.
