Hi guys. I am new here and have already made the Pepakura mask out of paper. That had got me thinking. Why not make it out of metal, completely? I used the Pepakura samples and used shears to cut the metal. Cuts all over my hands! Damn sharp. Anyway, here is a pic for your perusal.
I will keep updating this thread with my progress and pictures.
Comment please! Love to all you hobbyists!

Looks like your using Galvanized metal, I assume your welding this together? Be very careful when you weld, the fumes off welded galvanizing are no joke. Looks like a good start BTW.

Yeah, you're right. I actually don't know much about welding this metal and don't have the facilities for it. Should have been something to consider before I started, right? ;)
I will think of something and keep you posted on how I was able to do it (if ever!)

Just to let you know guys, I am a complete newbie. I like working with my hands (my ex-es can attest to that) but I am flying blind here. I use sheet metal to cut corners (hihi) and it shows. I can put several cutouts together and cut it so that it will fit snugly, but welding it, or even connecting it is difficult. Not to mention I had a few whiskeys...
Anyway, I will post a pic which might help others mimicking what I am doing but remember I still haven't figured out how to weld the pieces together...
I am creating the setting for a future mold, so I might just screw it together...

Definitely a new use for pep files. If you did it right you could always rivet it together and hide the rivets somehow.
