With a foam roll, two halves of a styrofoam ball, felt or fleece, fabric fur, and a black mesh, Montreal-based artist Ian Langor demonstrates how to make a monster mask that’s oozing with personality… and ooze.
CBC Arts shares this introductory Monster Mask tutorial. Change up the colors, textures, and facial expressions to your liking. Wear it for Halloween and all year long.
Langor uses pins, glue sticks, a hot glue gun, markers, scissors, and an x-acto knife to put it all together. For younger makers, parental supervision is recommended during the project’s knife and hot glue steps.
Ian Langor is a self-described sculptor of soft creatures. His Instagram account features fantastical costumes:
