04:32 am - Adventures in mask making
As the final step for working with masks with Aaron, in preparation for using one at Crossing the Thresholds, Aaron had me make the mask I am going to use. I've never made a mask before - he helped me sculpt the clay on top of the plaster of paris face, but time was running late and so he simply instructed me on how to put the paper on. I did this at home and finished a few minutes ago. Thankfully, after I put the first few pieces of paper on, I remembered him telling me to oil the mold to that the mask will come off of it when it's dry (I then removed the paper that was already on it, oiled the mold, and started again. With luck this will work and some of you will get to see it in a little over a week.

Great job. I have a local friend who does a lot of mask work, as well. What kind of clay are you using?

The mold is plasticine over a plaster head cast. The mask itself is paper mache.

Aaron has some plaster casts of faces, failing that, you can use a styrofoam mannequin head, then you apply plasticine to it, cover with a thin layer of cooking oil, and apply paper mache.
