Materials that you will need
- Blank paper of 11 X 8.5
We are going to proceed to take the measurements of the person that we are going to make the custom mask. We are gonna need 5 measurements in total.
- Nose measurement
- Mouth measurement
- We are going to apply the same measurement from the nose to the chin
- Measure from one eye to the other eye
- Face width measurement. Tip: To get better measurements measure from the sideburns
*Remember the measurements may vary depending on the shape and structure of the face of the person you are gonna make the custom mask for.
First you are gonna draw the squad line on the paper of 11 x 8 ½ and name the bigger line “A”
From line A you are gonna measure down 5.5cm (this measurement is the measurement from the nose), make a dot on the 5.5cm
Trace a line wit the squad going downwards and name it line “B”
From line “B” you are gonna measure down 7.5cm (this measurement is the measurement from the bottom of your nose to the bottom of the chin), make a dot on the 7.5cm
Name this line «D»
Between line «A» & «B» you are gonna apply the face with in this case the face with of the person was 22cm, you are gonna do this proccess again between «C» & «D»
You are gonna do the same process you did between line «A» &»B» but this time you are going to do it between lines «C» & «D».
In this step what you gonna do is connect both points you’ve made between line «A» &»B» and «C» &»D» to close the square.
Since the measurement of the eyes were 22cm from one end to the other end , we are gonna divide that 22cm by 2 to get equal part. When we dived we get 11cm, mark a dot and do this process for the next line.
We are gonna do the same process we did for line «A» & «B» but now we are gonna use line «C» & «D».
We are gonna connect the points you’ve made between line «A» &»B» and «C» &»D»
This two marks are the measurement of the eyes from one end of the eye to the other end. In this case the measurement was 12cm and we are gonna divide by 2. You are gonna do this for the upper part and the bottom part.
From the mark you’ve made in line A connect to the bottom right of the square.
You are gonna do the previous process for every mark you’ve made.
Measure 1cm in the along the outline of your mask.
You are gonna cut along the blue line leaving that 1cm for sewing.
Fold it in half.
You are going to measure down 1inch to make a curve.
You are gonna make the curve in the inner part of the mask
From the highest point of the previous curve you are gonna measure down 1inch but in the outter part of the mask
After you have both curves, you wanna cut the one you draw outside * the curve that’s highlight blue*
This curve was to determinate the shape of the eyes, and this is how you outline your custom mask.
