Paper Mache hanging mask

With some of the classes, we started off the Paper Mache process with lots of newspaper and glue! The aim is to produce a Venetian-inspired mask or a mask inspired by the 50's vintage look, but that is a surprise we'll leave till the painting process!

For the first lesson on this project, the children created the base of the mask on one side of a balloon after smearing it with Vaseline and then applying several layers of newspaper and glue. We have also spoken about the similar (but obviously more grand) process of the Carnival floats.

Next stage of this project would be painting and decorating...
