Marvel Papercraft - Spider-Man Mask

I got to looking at the Kaonashi Mask papercraft I did back in January and it occurred to me that the shape of the mask was pretty close to the shape of Spider-Man's mask. As an experiment, I re-colored the Kaonashi template. I was pleased with the result, so I thought I would post it for download. While the mask is full sized and can be worn (you are on your own in figuring out where to cut the eye holes!), I suspect that most people who build this will use it as more of a decorative object. With that in mind, I added to the template an optional cover to enclose the back and to provide extra support to help the mask keep its shape. I have also included two PDF templates in the download, one for a full size mask and one for a miniature mask. Look for more Marvel masks in the future! The template info for the Spider-Man mask is as follows:

  1. have the download links expired. I would love to make these for my sons room.

  2. The download links should still be valid. I looked into the problem and it appears that the whole file sharing website I use is temporarily down. All I can say is try again later and hopefully it will be working next time. Thanks for pointing out the problem.

  3. hi, love this! Trying to finish it for my son in time for a Hallowe'en/birthday party this weekend ... I am wondering if you find it better to work from the centre out or from the outside in when gluing?

    thanks very much!

  4. I personally have found it works better to start in the center and work your way out. Take your time when when building, it can be a little tricky because of the curves!

  5. good old spidey (Y)

  6. how old is this website?

    How long does it take to download?

    1. This website was started in 2008. I suppose the time it takes to download depends on the speed of your Internet connection.
