Remove the elastic cord from your mask and put aside for a later step. Paint your mask in 2 coats of paint, the first with orange Acrylic Paint and the second with orange Glow in the Dark paint.

Once dry, use a pencil to draw a design on the mask. We chose a Jack-o-lantern theme so we drew triangular shapes around the eyes.
