Step 1: Make the Mask

Picture of Make the Mask

*There are many steps to the mask, so to keep this instructable condensed I have created a separate instructable for the mask-->

*Basic steps for the mask:

*Form clay on Styrofoam head in shape of Davy Jones' head and bases of tentacles

*Create tentacles using aluminum foil, cover in clay and add cheerios for the suction cups

*Add 12 layers of liquid latex to the mask head with the last 2 layers being a mixture of latex and paint

*Add 6 layers of liquid latex to the tentacles with the last 2 layers being a mixture of latex and paint

*Add foam/inserts to ensure mask maintains shape

*Cut eye/mouth holes

*Stuff tentacles and attach to mask (Add string + a straw if you want the tentacles to be able to move)
