I need to help my brother make a mask for his 1st grade class.  He wants to make a tin man mask.  I need some help.  First of all, which would be better to make it "tin" - aluminum foil or silver paint?  Also, how do I make the face distinguishing to the tin man?  I'm not exactly sure how to make the mask at all.

You can buy plastic masks rather cheap, I'd cover one with tin foil, looks more realistic.

If you could get him to sit still long enough, you could make a paper mache mask out of his face, and add a long tube-like nose extended from where his is.  I would go with paint though, I'm not sure how to get the foil to stick.  You could probably also but a plastic mask and somehow add the pointy nose.  The guy in the movie just had a painted face!
