- I then, initally placed tape over the features, to outline them, carefully. After this, I covered the mask entirely with tape to make it firmer.
- I then added, some cotton balls below the mask, and pasted it on a carboard cutout.
- After the above, I continued the mask with paper mache. Elmers Wood glue with some water mixed throughly to create a fine paste along with newspaper strips were used for the Mache process.
The paper mache-ing was carried out in the following process,
- First: I dipped each strip of paper in the glue and layed it out horizontally over the mask and eventually covered the mask entirely. It was left to dry up for a good 2hours and I further continued with the next 2 layers.
- I repeated the same procedure as step one with the paper strips but only this time, layed then vertically to cover the entire mask. This was also left to dry for another 2 hours.
- The first procedure was repeated again, layed out horizontally over the entire mask. The mask was then left to dry for a day, inorder to make it as firm and dry as possible.
