Carnival Mask!

Post by Guest on Mon Feb 08, 2010 7:40 pm

Hi Girls! Carnival is the funniest party of the of year! Let’s make together an amazing and original mask: using paper mache techniques, you can create almost anything! The best part is that you probably have everything you need to create paper mache masterpieces laying around your home right now!

What you need:



A balloon

A string


A bowl
Tear the newspapers into strips (do not cut it!). Dip them in a bowl with hot water and let macerate for at least one night.
Let’s prepare the paper mache paste! Use regular glue mixed with a bit of water: mix using about 1 part water with 2 parts glue. Twist the newspapers and mix them with the paste. Blow up the balloon till you obtain a form matching your face shape. Stick the newspaper strip over the balloon, and smooth it down with your fingers till you completely cover your creation. After one layer is applied, let it dry about 24 hours. Add another layer of newspaper strips and let dry another 24 hours. Repeat this process until you get the desired effect, but you should have at least three layers. Let each layer dry completely before adding another and do not cover holes for eyes and nose! Pop the balloon and pull it out.
Tip: the easiest way to work on the balloon is to work on an inverted bowl, by setting the balloon (knot side down) in a large yogurt container so it stays in one place.

And now, decorate! When the piece is dry, get out your paints or collage materials and get creative! You can use wool threads as moustaches and eyebrows. Be sure to let the paint dry before you give it a coat of clear gloss.

Tip: temperas will bleed into the gloss coat if you try to brush it on - use a spray gloss!

And now? Have fun with your new mask! You can use the same basic paper mache process to make a puppet head or an environment complete with hills and roads for your Winx Club collection!
