  3. Upcycling a cheap mask

    Tutorials and Step-By-Step
    I have a cheap, flimsy Frankenstein mask I bought at Walmart several years ago. The paint job on it is terrible, but I always thought the sculpt was kind of cool. I decided to make it into a piece of wall art. This is what the piece looked like coming out of storage. The mask was wrinkled...
