The post, entitled “Extended Day Project: Plaster Masks” was made on March 4, 2013! Click on the post title to get linked to the original post.
Mrs. Impey’s class used plaster to fill the masks. You do not need to use any oil or additive to help with mold release. The plaster will release very easily from the molds as they are made of flexible but durable plastic. Once the plaster has dried, start lifting up the plaster mask at the mold edges. Very gently work out the rest of the mask until it pops free!
Mrs. Impey’s students displayed their incredible artistic talents with their decorating!
This student inspects his mask intently as he uses paint to decorate it. Wonderful job!
The R5967 Masks of the World Poster and Mold Set comes with 12 mask molds; a mask map of the world for students to identify all the locations where they originate; and finally, two posters that show example images of the finished masks. Children can use the posters as inspiration for their own masks!
Thanks to Jen for this inspiring post!
