Plaster Mask Making

This past week in Therapeutic Use of Art Materials class we made masks out of plaster!!  It was fun, so I wanted to share some photos with you.

First step, cover whatever your going to put plaster on in Vaseline... here is a picture of my Vaseline covered face:

And then your partner puts the strips of plaster on you:

We had lots of cool outcomes.. here are some more photos:

And finally... some photos of dry masks:

Now, we have to decorate them!  You can decorate them with almost anything... spray paint, acrylic paint, watercolors, tissue paper collage, feathers, etc.  I really have no clue what I am going to do to mine, if anything.

Hope you enjoyed seeing all the crazy plaster pictures.  Thanks for stopping by, "see" ya tomorrow.

  1. I teach a plaster mask lesson to my students also. We just use the plastic molds as we don't have enough time in one period to do it on the face. Its a super fun project! Wheni taught middle school I did have the kids lay on the table and put the strips on their face. Very messy!
