DIY | Antler Headband

hey everyone so for this projectyou'll need newspaper tin foil plaster cloth plaster powdersandpaper or nail file tape paint brushes acrylic paint modgepodge and a headband First take your tin foil and a whole lotta tape and shape how you want the antlers to look on your headband next take your plaster cloth and cut thatinto tiny strips dip it in water and then cover the entireframe you just made you can use paper mache but it tends totend to take a lot longer to dry you need a lot more layers for the sameamount of strength that plaster cloth gives you when you first layer of plaster is dry justtake some sand paper or a nail file and just smooth down any rough edges you see Right here I'm just showing you thatwhen you pull apart the headband the edges lift up.

So when you doyour second layer of plaster just make sure you reinforceand make sure your antlers are secured onyour headband Next I'm going to be taking some plaster powderor plaster of paris, and i'm going to make amixture with some water you don't want it to be too thick or too runny I find when you use plaster clothit tends to get lumpy So my trick is to use plaster powder smooth it on with a paintbrush whatever surface you're working on,it just creates a smoother texture Once that layer is dry,take a nail file or sandpaper and smooth down rough edges and smooth down rough edges you see Next take some acrylic paint, first prime your surface.

Then take any brown shades you have and paint your antlers to finish off your new headband, just take some mod podge and cover the entire surface.
