Send us your questions

Some of our visitors have sent emails with interesting questions, we decided to start having a space to answer them. In this space the blog "Restless Minds" will answer all questions you send us
Send us your question for the email: Restless Minds.

Science progress affects our daily life and "to know" means you are going to chose right, because it allows you to form your own opinion on scientific everyday issues. On the other hand, having an elegant and harmonious vision of the world where we live in leads to a feeling of intellectual satisfaction.
We believe this kind of scientific day to day knowledge should be encouraged from an early age, and that's why this project was born: science, culture, knowledge, crafts for your restless mind.

DIY Carnival masks

I found this molds here, and I tried to do it, the result is above.

What we need:
  • scissors,
  • pen,
  • felt, I used red ad black,
  • double tape.
How to:
  1. Print the draw you want to use to your mask. You can find a few at the end of this post, If you don't have a printer use tracing paper in your computer monitor;
  2. With the pen draw the outside lines of the mask on the felt;
  3. Cut the felt;
  4. Cut of the mask eyes;
  5. Repeat the steps 1-4 for the other mask elements (the black pieces on the pictures), use a different felt color;
  6. Apply double tape n the back of the small mask ornaments, like in pictures;
  7. Cut out the excess tape, use good scissors ;
  8. Apply the small pieces on the mask;
  9. Place the mask on your restless face and mark the holes to pass through the elastic;
  10. Use the paper punch or the scissors to do a small hole;
  11. Place the elastic; you may want to reinforce the hole with a small piece of felt.
  • You may apply glitter to give some light to your mask;
  • You can paint it;
  • Use more then 2 colors for a crazy look;
  • etc. 

Et voil√°!
