BioShock Kitty Splicer Mask

kitty_splicer_mask_bioshock_tutorial_2

Splicers are the big bads in BioShock and BioShock 2; they’re twisted in both body and mind and they’re scary. They wear masquerade masks for extra spook factor, and some of the masks resemble animals such as rabbits and cats. Roxy Lee wrote a step-by-step explaining how to make the kitty splicer mask. She started with a dollar store cat mask and only used items she had around her house. The first few steps:

Step 1:
– Take mask,you can purchase these at party stores or craft stores, try to rub off as many sparkles as possible with sand paper then trim the ribbon on the side and lay it flat on an old ironing board or flat surface. If there are no sparkles skip and go ahead to step 2!

Step 2:
– Prime it first with white primer (not pictured and only if mask is not already white) then spray a very light thin coat of gold spray paint over top, do not worry about not getting an even coat, this helps with detailing it later.

Step 3:
– When the paint is not TOO dry go in with a dry sponge and pull up pieces of the paint in areas to get an older weathered feel, then when fully dry shape mask in areas adding cracks, cut out broken pieces, I broke off the left side of the mask and added Jagged areas with sharp craft scissors and an X-acto blade until I was happy with the broken look.
