Step #1: Make a paper pattern
Draw your horn shape on a piece of paper and cut it out.
Step #3: Glue foam layers together
Using hot glue, liquid latex, or contact cement, glue the 2 layers together. Here I used liquid latex. Let it dry before working on shaping the horns.
With the marker, draw the shape of the base of the horn onto the bottom of the foam.
- With the marker, draw the outline for the trench on the base of the horn. Then cut out the trench using a box cutter. It should be deep enough to fit the hairband in so that the horn will sit flush against your head.
- If you’d like your horns to tilt backwards, trim the base of the horn at an angle.
- Be sure the horns are dry before you paint them. When the latex is dry it might still be tacky, so powdering it with baby powder will remove the tackiness.
- The horns can be painted with regular acrylic paints. Start with a light colored base coat, then build up more dark colors.
- To achieve the rough gradient effect, us a dry-brushing technique, where you put a bit of paint on your brush and let it become slightly dry as you apply it to the horn.
