While many of us wear masks for Halloween, and believe me this is a great way to make your own unique Halloween mask, it's just pain fun to make a mask anytime of year!
If you create a mask, post it, I would LOVE to see it!
Let's get started....
A wonderful instructbale reader pointed out to me that this technique is used by a wonderful artist named Jonni Good, I picked up this way of making masks from a workshop taught by another art teacher, I had no idea that this trickles back down to Ms. Good and her years of work! So do check her out, I did and I was BLOWN AWAY by what she can do!
Step 1: Materials Needed
Plaster of Paris
White School Glue
Hot Glue Gun
Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline)
Two large bowls
Face/Mask/Face Form (I really like the Make-a-Mask® Reusable Face Forms)
Oil Based Clay (Molding Clay) - The more oil the better
Step 3: Build The Mask
Don't worry about the clay color, it make no difference at all what colors are being used.
(Side note: I've made several of these, I was bad about taking pictures so you will this process in the form of several different masks)
