In this report we’re going to examine how to create your own dog mask. We’ll cover the basics and then go on to look at a number of the more advanced tips and tricks which you can use.

For those who have a dog that likes to bark, and particularly if your dog loves to play in the backyard and other areas of the home, you need to get them some particular dog protection.

Paper Plate 3d Dog Mask DIY Materials: This is the initial part of the setup which will look a little scary at first, but it’s actually quite straightforward. All you’ve got to do is take a cardboard cutting board and cut the cardboard into the shape of your mask. You can not simply cut a rectangular shape from the cardboard, so you will have to cut around the edge of the mask so you get something that resembles a cone. The most important thing here is to be realistic with what type of paper plate that you’re using.

Then you’ll have to wrap the cardboard around the edges of the paper plate, making certain that there is a good seal between the two pieces so that you can ensure that nothing will leak when you place the mask on. Make sure the edges are cut so that the edges aren’t sharp, as this can damage the edges of the mask.

Glue it on! The next step involves using some paint. You should spray the paint over the cardboard, making sure that it runs smoothly and evenly across the entire mask. You’ll want to start with one side of the mask , so you can work your way around it before moving onto the other side. The paint needs to be slightly thicker than the cardboard, and it’s best that you leave about one-third of an inch of paint on the edges so that it runs over the cardboard.

Don’t fret too much about the paint getting stuck into your mask. It’s easy to remove it later, and it’ll leave you with a nice finished mask to show off to everybody! It’s also a good idea to dogsrecommend.com/dog-mask/ wipe away any excess paint once you’re done, so you don’t wind up with smudges or smears on your dog.

Then it’s time to glue the mask onto your dog’s head. First you will need to be certain that you have a secure fit between the mask and your dog’s head. As soon as you’ve made sure that it is secure, then you may begin to glue the mask onto the dog’s face. Take the piece of cardboard that’s used for the foundation of the mask and fold it over. Make sure that it’s quite strong and then use your hands to ensure the cardboard down in place.

Keep your hands out of the way and use tape to hold it in place as you repeat the procedure on the cardboard folds until you have the mask snugged firmly onto the face of your dog. Don’t make the folds too big or else it might look messy. Once you’ve done this, you can then take out the mask and then attach the cardboard ears. And attach the other part of the mask onto the dog. Make certain the ears are flat and be certain it is not too short or long as this can cause some problems with the mask slipping off the dog’s face.

If you’re using a dog mask as your dog protection, you will need to do some sanding to make sure that it’s safe on your dog. You can do this by sanding off any excess paper that may have been eliminated from your mask.
