Make Your Favorite DC Super Hero Face Masks
Here is a full tutorial on how to personalize an adult size and youth size face mask.
What you’ll need:
- Cricut machine (I used a Cricut Joy™)
- Smart Iron-On™ in black
- Everyday Iron-On in yellow
- Cricut EasyPress Mini™
- Cricut EasyPress® Mat or towel
- Weeding tool
- Cloth face mask (we used the Cricut pattern in Design Space to make this mask)
Step 1: Find your image. Search for one of the awesome new DC Super Hero images in Design Space. You can see all Warner Bros. content by filtering by “brand” when searching for images. I chose the Wonder Woman™ logo. (You will follow these same steps for both the Batman™ and Superman™ masks.)
After choosing your image, size it to the mask you will be applying it to and click, Make It. You will be doing two cuts one for the bottom layer of the logo (in black) and another for the top layer (in yellow).
Step 2: Cut your design. I used Smart Iron-On in black and Everyday Iron-On in yellow.
Don’t forget to mirror your image before you cut your image! Remember, when you’re using Smart Iron-On, it cuts without a mat. As a busy mom, I love how it makes things go faster.
Step 3: Weed your design. Pull the material in the negative space away from the image before you transfer it to the mask. I used my weeding tool, a must-have for intricate iron-on projects, to remove the excess material. Start at the corner and pull away the material to see your design revealed. You’ll weed both layers.
Step 4: Transfer your design. Grab your Cricut EasyPress Mini to transfer your design. Use the Cricut heat guide for guidance (super helpful for heat transfer projects) and set the temperature appropriate for your project.
For my mask, I preheated the surface for a few seconds then applied the iron-on design by continuously moving the EasyPress Mini in circular motions for about 15 seconds. Then, I flipped the mask over to repeat the same amount of press time from the back.
This logo requires layering. You’ll want to put the first layer down and do the steps above and then put down your second layer. It’s OK to layer designs and transfer without a protective sheet.
Make sure you let each layer totally cool before pulling off the backer. It should only take a couple minutes to transfer and you’re done.
