Mask Making Part 3 – Creating the Form and Mask

Posted By on April 2, 2009

My good friend Kirby joined us today from Tempe, AZ for a couple of days of mask making fun.  The next step of the process is to use our plaster positive as a base and create a clay form of what we want the final mask to look like.  Sarah decided to make an alien mask and Kirby and I chose traditional Commedia Dell Arte’ masks. 

After sculpting the clay form we coat the it with Vaseline and use Paper Mache’ to make the final mask.  It will dry overnight and then it’s on to the final stage.
