I was browsing this site and saw the iron man equipment and decided to try my own please note the product will not be finished until Friday 8th of august
Step 1: Step 1 Making Your Base
to make your helmet base you need to blow up a balloon to the size your head and cover it in paper mache 2 to 4 layers depending on how hard you want your helmet
Step 2: Step 2 Formation of the Helmet
once your base is dry you push a sewing needle through the back and pop the balloon inside once you have done this in the bottom/back you need to cut a hole to fit your head in .
Step 3: Step 3 Face of Iron Man
now you have made the hole you can start to make the mould come alive with "funky foam" this averages at about 49p-£100 tou will need four sheets of red and two of yellow first you start with making the detachable front i have drawn this template onto orange card for better visibility to stick this together i reccomend super glue or double sided tape.
Step 4: Step 4 the Helmet Side and Back
for your red helmet you must make each panel according to the picture on your red funky foam depending on the head size your panels will be bigger or smaller again i recommend you stick on with super glue or double sided tape . please note only use 3 sheets to save one for later details.
Step 5: Step 5 Detatchable or Not
if you want a detachable face or not dependends on wether you skip this step or not if so then you need to take the yellow foam face plate and temperelily stick it to you unplated front once stuck down you must draw in pencil a line that follows the edge once you have done this you must cut out along the pencil line slightly inwards so you can push it in and pull it out
Step 6: Step 6 Not Detatchable
if you do not want a detatchable face then this is your page
temperelaly stickdown your yellow foam face plate and draw around it with pencil but cut slightly inwards after this you must super glue the face into the hole.
