Be ready for the masquerade with Jacqui Stockdale. Create a simple Ned Kelly mask and customise it!
Use a stanley knife and cutting board, cut your cardboard to 40cm x 90cm in size. Roll it together tightly and release. Save the rest of the cardboard.
Shape a cylinder and place it over your head. Make a pencil mark on the cardboard roughly where your eyes are positioned. Then, measure the cylinder to your desired size. Remove and make a pencil mark for the correct size.
Draw a rectangle shape roughly 5cm x 15cm where you made a pencil mark for the eyes.
Cut the shape out with a stanley knife and cutting board.
Here's what it should have now. Almost there!
Use the masking tape to hold the cylinder together on the pencil mark you made.
Place the cylinder on top of the left over piece of cardboard and use a pencil to trace the inside of the cylinder. Cut out the shape you've made with the stanley knife and cutting board.
Place the shape on inside the top of the cylinder and use the masking tape to hold together.
Use the masking tape outside to cover the edge of the cylinder.
Use masking tape on the inside too for extra strength.
Apply the tape at the top of the helmet.
That's it you have your base. You can now customise your mask with paint, colour or extra details.
For example, you can cut out horn shapes...
and insert them on the side.
