This article includes Spiderman mask template which you can use to make your own spider-man mask

Lets get straight into tutorial

We will start to make this by gathering few essentials

Supplies necessary to make spider man miles Morales mask

  • Cardboard
  • Few sheets of A4 size paper
  • Super glue and normal paper glue
  • Spray paint and fabric paint
  • Rubber bands and fish wire

Spiderman mask template

I prefer diy Spiderman mask template rather than printing directly which is readily available

The reason for the above said statement is every individual has different face sizes while there is no age gap for fandom!

As a result building this as per your measurements of face size gives you better fit

The below given templates worked best for me i made use of A4 size sheet to design this later trace it on cardboard

This is small part of half side from our mask just draw or trace this on your paper and check with palm of your hand

Palm size is almost equal to face size hence it gives rough idea whether it fits or not

Use small amount of paper glue to stick this sheet on cardboard and cut using paper cutter

The above design fills leftovers of half part repeat same above said steps and obtain this shape on cardboard

I use single corrugated cardboard, Double corrugated will make you have a very had time as its very difficult to retail shape

After all steps are complete you will be left out with 3 such pieces as in visual below

After assembling this we get half of our face shell , to get other half repeat same steps as given above

Join 2 shells so that we have full mask that looks like this

The above shell looks so wonky right! yes it is so we have work on fixing 2 issues here

First being there are lots of spaces between cardboard joints and second being shell is not so strong

To fix both of the problems there is one easy way

Use normal white paper glue mix with water then apply a coat over this followed by adding pieces of tissue

This process took me 1 hour straight to complete covering each and ever detail of this shell

Even though it consumes time make sure not to loose your patience as at the end its definitely worth it

The shell that took around 24 hours for complete drying looks like this!

This took up around 15 tissues you can add more tissues which adds to increase in thickness as well as strength of the shell

Finishing cardboard spider-man mask

After you get your dry hard shell paint it with spray paint

If you don’t have one fabric paint does the job for you

Painting inner surface is optional as it will be hidden i sprayed it too

Now for good finishing of this shell i made use of inner surfaces of eyes and trace it on sheet of paper

This should be done manually as we cant have template for this part this is because design undergoes changes as result of cardboard joining

Obtaining proper and accurate fit is highly difficult hence after the shell is dry take dimensions of design

After cutting outer eye covers on thin piece of cardboard and later spray paint with gloss red spray paint gives you finish like above visual

To give appealing appearance i add web like structures on shell

To do this, Color woolen thread with red color fabric paint and start to add across all sides as shown in above image

At this point we have our Spider-man mask ready but there is no life in it

To give life we need to make small and simple mechanism which i will show now

Spider Man Miles Morales Mask moving lens mechanism

We will need 4 pices of lens frame that is slightly large in size comapre to outer lens to make moving lens mechanism

This mechanism to be explain in very easy way i would say this is similar to scissors working principle

Each of 2 will be pin at the end that works like screws of scissor

When we apply force to one end one frame will move up so we are talking about total 4 lens pieces

So to work 2 at a time simultaneously we have to link both in sucb a way that moving of one will move other too

This can be done using fish wire

Here i connect one lens with fish wire in the following path i add a tube made from paper then this wire is add to second half of lens

By this way if i pull fish wire it results in closing of lens

Lens closing and opening mechanism

So what about opening of lens after it closes?

This was a problem which made me scratch my head but the solution was very simple

Just add rubber band across 4 of the lenses side

This way lens will be held by bands as a result by default eyes will be open upon pulling the string eye closes which when release opens

This is shown clearly in above image

This is inside look of moving lens mechanism, Lighy yellow color rubber bands helps to pull back when string is pulled to close the lens

You might be wondering what is that white tubes going trough sides

Those were add to ensure smooth flow of lenses when its pull by string also i add limits so that lens do not come out

After this is done i add a layer of mosquito mesh that gives neat appearance to the overall structure

Our Mask is ready to use!
