How did you make that bow? It's wonderful! I'm in the beginning stages of making a bow and would love any tips you might have. ^_^

Hey there, the bow was actually pretty easy I made it last minute ^_^; I first found a toy bow that had a strong enough handle-grip in the middle. Then I extended it by adding cardboard panels in the shape of the bow arch on either side of the handle grip. I added the panels by hot glue. After that set, I used electrical tape (the black, thick kind) and bound the extensions to strengthen it. After each side was bound, I used the electrical tape in vertical strips to flatten out any bumps. I then painted over the whole thing with regular crafting paint.

Overall this process could be improved by using paper mache and building up a more rounded shape over the cardboard, then sanding and varnishing. But if you're short on time and money, the above method works too .

Wow I can't believe it's partially a mask, it looks so natural. Cleverly done, you look fantastic!

Thanks Kudrel! It's not as great as it looks in the photo. It was peeling off most of the convention, I think I did a poor job of getting off the spirit gum from the day before. Prosthetics, errgh!
