Tips:Prepare a second stencil out of crafting foam and press it to your face.Crafting foam is more flexible than normal paper and gives you a better impression of what your Boy Wonder mask will look like.A stencil out of crafting foam makes the adjusting of the shape much easier as well.
Step 3: Cutting out the basic form
As soon as you’re content with the way your stencil looks,copy it onto the sheets of worbla’s Finest Art and cut it out.Round the edges of the cosplay mask with sandpaper.
Step 4: Shaping of the plastic
After the basic form of Robin mask is finished, you can proceed to the most difficult step – the shaping of the plastic.
Place the cut-out plastic on the floor and heat it up with a hair dryer slowly.You know worbla’s finest art is ready to use as soon as it changes its color from caramel to light brown.
Lift the warmed up plastic off the ground carefully,place it on your face and press it into shape.Keep the Boy Wonder cosplay mask on for about 1 minute until the plastic has cooled down again.After this step the mask basically finished.
Tips :In case that you are not happy with the shape of your Robin mask, place it on the floor and hear it up again.You can change the shape of the mask as many times as you want to.
Step 5: Paintwork of Robin mask
After the shaping of your Wonder Boy cosplay mask is done the only thing left to do is the painting.Depending on the colour of your choice you will have to apply between 2-5 layers of paint.
