Hey everyone! A while back I decided I wanted to tackle the new "Amazing Spiderman" mask and I thought I would post some pics of what I've got so far! I didn't have much of a budget for this project so I knew printing on Lycra was out of the question, so I just decided to go the classic puff-paint route! I started from scratch, realizing that the old Spidey pattern wouldn't work for this mask, since all of the webbing detail is different. Anyway, here are some progress pics, each with a brief description above it. Enjoy!

Click to see the pics-
I started with a quick material test, just to see how difficult this would be. It wasn't too bad, so I decided to press on. (The colors are way too bright here, so I had to change them a bit later on.)





I then started work on my pattern. For those of you who have seen my work, you'll notice that I'm very fond of tin foil :lol





I then flattened the tin-foil out in the shape of my rough patterns.





My rough tin-foil pattern refined a bit-





Then put onto fabric for the initial mask-





The first mask all sewn together. As you can see, way too loose. That's the point of a first draft though!





So I then pinned the mask up to get a better shape, along with the first draft of a lens template-





For the lens material itself, I realized my front gate had a similar texture (Though not a honeycomb pattern)





So, I set it up to have a silicone mold made-





Then put liquid plastic into the silicone mold to make my lens-





A more refined mask with a rough lens on it-





I then started to sketch out the web pattern-





The finalized web pattern-





Annd then taken apart and laid out flat-





Then I made a template for the shading and brick pattern-





The first piece shaded-





Annd the rest. I went a bit heavy with the shadows, and didn't really get some of the highlights I wanted, such as the cheek bones. I blame the fact that I was painting outside at night with practically no light.





Ready to lay the Honeycomb texture. Note my hastily made light table. Like I said, practically no budget.





The lenses refined and ready for some gold-





The honeycomb laid on the face piece. Ready for webbing!





The frames for the lenses being cast with liquid plastic-





The lenses painted gold-





Annnd the finished face piece, all ready to be sewn-





The refined frames ready to be molded-





Wearing the sewn up mask! Now all that's left is to lay the webbing to hide the seams, and glue on the lenses!





The mask on a bust so I can lay on the final webbing. I also pinned the lenses on (roughly) with the old foam frame. The final plastic frames aren't as thick.





Wearing the mask again, this time with the seams covered up





Aaand with the lenses pinned on. I'm surprised I didn't pin them to my skin.






The finished lenses





The lenses glued on. They don't sit perfectly on the mask, but if you have any experience with Spidey masks you'll know that without a face shield it's hard to make them look perfect.





Then wearing the mask-



Again in at a different angle-


Thanks for looking! :D

MCL34N, you're one crafty dude. Your mask is looking really cool. I especially like your approach on the eyes and eye frames. Is that foam lens frames in the above picture?

Wow, the progress is amazing. Im everytime excited to see people start out of nothing and realize such great items. Hope to see some pictures of the sewn Mask in the near future. The honeycomb effect is really awesome and comes out very well.

Thanks for the kind words guys! And Grave I'm not sure why you can't see the pics, I linked them off of Facebook so that might have something to do with it. I'm making the final lens frame molds and sewing everything up tonight, should have some updated pics by morning. And to answer your question Spidey74, I made the initial lens frame molds with foam frames, but the final ones will be plastic :D
