Well, moving along smoothly with the Lego costume project part 2… I can say that because Justin is the one making this one. :) So, where did I leave off? Ah, yes, he glued the Lego head circles together…
Step 4. Think about how you are going to get the Lego head to move with the face that is going in the mask. My 1/4 inch work out head bands that I never wear came in handy in our case. He used 3 or them. He cut 2 of them so they were just a long string and hot glued them to make an X. The third one he hot glued to the bottome of the X, just a little way from the edges that were hot glued for the X. Pictures say so much more than words sometimes. :)
Step 5. Next he took another circle (one that he did not cut the inside out with the template) and hot glued it to the top of the head. One step I forgot to mention in the previous post is that he took his electric sander to the head to smooth it out. He did that again to the top circle added to the top of the head~ picture is of head before that top circle had been sanded.
Step 6. Use one of the discarded small circles from when you cut your big circle templates out (the inside part that came out when you cut it). Hot glue it to the top of your head. Take the electric sander and sand the top and bottom of the head to make it look more rounded.
Step 7. Start painting. You will need to do two coats. The picture is after the first coat, and you can notice the bottom has not been done yet either.
