I cut two one inch eye holes in the middle of the mask.
Step 5: Triangle Shape for the Beak
I folded a piece of cardboard into a triangle shape, with small tabs, for the beak.
Step 6: Plaster Wrap
I used plaster wrap to attach the beak to the mask. Then I used three layers of plaster wrap to completely cover the mask.
Step 7: Painting the Mask Black
I let the plaster wrap dry, then i painted the whole mask black.
Step 8: Decorating With Feathers
I hot glued white fluffy feathers and small black feathers onto the wings.
