A special mask made...by special people!

Now I mentioned that I make plaster masks but never really got the chance to post any pictures. I'll get to it soon...I just have to get pictures and all.

However there is one special mask that I wish to post here.

My students had an idea. They had a lesson which dealt with carnivals all around the world and thought it would be interesting to create a mask and present it to class. They knew that I was into that kind of hobby so...they turned to me for help :-)

This is what we did. Now remember all I did was form the face...the painting and final creation is my students' work. Give it up for George and Rosalia (aged 10!).

Beautiful! I'd love to see more of the masks you make. Oh and I forgot to email, we received your package! Thank you SO much! I'll be showing the school book to my book reading group as we are reading the Percy Jackson series (Greek mythology) and we were discussing the Greek alphabet.
