Pirate Mask Pattern


1. Use a make up sponge to apply black ink along the inner edges of the eye cut outs. Use the chalk applicator to blend shades of red, orange, pink, and yellow to the lower edge of the mask as shown. 
Gently blend until the mask has absorbed the color.

2. You will wrap the ribbon diagonally across the upper corners of the mask to look like a bandanna with a knot at one side and a trailing end. Do a test wrap to determine the length of ribbon you need and mark on the ribbon where the knot will go. Lay the piece of red ribbon on a piece of newsprint. Rub the black ink pad over the ribbon in long strokes to distort the color. Heat set. Tie the knot in the ribbon at the marking, then attach to the mask using craft glue. Trim the tail to the desired length.

3. Cut an eye patch circle from black cardstock that is larger then the eye opening. Stamp the spider web image with black ink, and emboss with black powder. Distress the outer edges. Glue the diamond-shaped stud embellishment to the eye patch where the eye would be. Secure a piece of the black elastic cord on either side of the patch, then glue the eye patch and elastic cord to the mask.

4. Download the hat pattern then trace it onto the black cardstock. Use the silver ink to stamp the skull image on the hat center front, and emboss with silver powder. Crumple, distress and tear the outer edges of the hat. Use the gold Ink to accent the hat here and there along the crumple lines and edges.

5. Cut the filigree off of the chipboard frame to create an oval. Cover the oval with gold ink, and emboss with gold powder. Secure this piece to the hat front. Secure the feather to the back side of the hat at the top. Adhere the hat to the mask.
