This is my first mask,it takes 2 people to make one generally.In my theatre production class we were getting the materials together for making masks,so that the drama 11/12 could make them.The teacher said i could make one so i did.

Materials:
Paris craft paper:30 strips about 1 1/2 inches wide cut in the center at a diagonal.
Paris craft strips cut into little triangles:about 2 strips worth of them
Bucket/or Pail of water.
Newspaper to cover your surface.
Petroleum jelly
Water putty
Paint & paint brushes

Apply the petroleum jelly on your face especially the eyebrows because if you don't that means bye bye eyebrows.Then get someone else to apply the strips to your face.The strips are dipped in the water, it makes them more like glue so they will stick together.The pattern of the strips should go up and down across, then diagonally.Apply layers until it feel thick enough, and once its dry just take it off you face.It will not be completely dry through out so you have to let it sit for a day or two. Once its completely dry you can cut the mask to the shape you want and apply the water putty, the water putty is only an option, basically its for making texture on your masking and making it so things pop. If you do the water putty you have to wait till its completely dry, that usually takes a day, after that you can paint, however if you don't water putty you can paint as soon as its dry. Once you are completely done painting and everything is dry you can attach and elastic band on that back with staples.

Here's my mask!









I might add a little more to the paint job but I'm not sure yet.

Hey - for some reason i couldn't see the pictures - guess my job blocks Jpgs!

I once made a mask using similar materials - I airbrushed it at the end to give it smooth definition - it looked great (well the painting bit - I'm a better artist than a crafter) but I think the paint I used reacted w/the other materials - it cracked up a little -  

I'll have to find a picture of it and post so you can see -  Keep craftin!

Very nice!
My first time, I forgot to put Vaseline on my eyebrows...ow. And I barely put any on the rest of my face. I thought I was going to rip my skin off. Plus, it didn't turn out nearly as nice as yours. A job well done, I'd say.

Next time you make one, before you cut it, press some clay into the mask and then you will have another way to see yourself. You can leave it as is, or change yourself! Then get it fired and glaze it, or low fire glaze it right away, then fire it. Or you can put it in a pit fire and get a very nice effect too...or raku it. I pit fired mine and it is very interesting. Happy Masking, Stephanie
