Paint the mask with Mushroom and let it dry.

Brush the Weathered Wood Medium over the mask.  Let the medium dry completely.

Paint Cotton Ball over the entire mask.  The paint will begin to “crack” almost immediately.

When the mask is dry, use a sea sponge to add Black Tie around the eyes and mouth areas.  Blot the black paint on the face, too, to create an aged and dirty appearance.

Mix a small amount of black and white paint to create a gray hue.  Use the sea sponge to blot the paint on the black roses to make them look dusty and old. Hot glue the roses to the crown of the mask.

Swamp Creature Mask DIY

Mix Pearlizing Medium with Sour Apple Paint at a one to one ratio.  Paint the mask with the green paint, leaving the eye areas and the mouth area unpainted.

Use the white paint with the medium to paint the eyes.

Mix the medium with the with the Lavender paint.  Use a fine brush to add detail around the eyes.  Paint worm-like lines up and across the top of the mask to make a “brain”.  Trace the nose area with arcs, and use the end of the brush to add dots to the cheek areas.

Mix the Pearlizing Medium with the Jack O’Lantern Orange paint.  Add vein details to the eyes and head.  Paint the lips. Add veins to the cheeks.

The black paint mixed with the medium will be used for detailing.  Fill in the mouth area.  Draw pointy ears on the sides of the mask.  Trace the eye area and extend it with the black paint.

Use the white pearlized paint to add the triangle teeth the alien’s mouth.
