The third graders made plaster masks in Art, and these are the steps. First, we put plaster in face molds and everyone got messy. It felt gooey when we put the plaster strips in water and put them inside the mask molds.
Next, we painted on a base color like red, blue, green, black, orange or light green. We focused on symmetry, which means keeping the same designs on both sides.
Last but not least, we painted other colors and drew on the masks with gold and silver markers and glued fabric on to the masks. It was cool to work with plaster!
