Step 1: Plan What Your Mask Will Look Like
Step 2: Cut the Mouth of Of the Mask (Optional)
Step 3: Start the Mache
Start paper maching on your facial features, for our chorus masks we wanted over the top features. I start by pilling up the tissue paper onto the cheeks to make large cheeks, make sure to use lots of glue to form it into any shape you like.
Step 4: Leave the Mache to Dry.
You have to make sure to leave your masks until they are fully dry before you can add paint, we left ours overnight but some parts were still tacky, you may need a little more than one night depending on how much glue you used.
Step 5: Start Painting!
Because it is a chorus mask you will need to have the same masks, or similar features like we opted for. I started by using an olive skin colour, similar to everyone else's then I painted on prominent dark black eyebrows, I added bright red to the cheeks and then a blue tip on the nose.
Step 6: Leave the Paint to Dry
Make sure to wait until the paint is fully dry so before you wear it, we leaved our masks in class overnight.
