Here are a few from that first year. The 2 examples below are what I call masks that go "beyond the face."
Here are some of the more unusual or unique ones that students have made.
Well....... it's that time of year again AND my 5th graders are getting REALLY excited and I'm trying hard to get all the necessary info to them to be successful. I have an iMovie that was made a while back, but I feel the process has been streamlined since then and I want to present it as a power point. There is more control over showing slides then a video. More of an opportunity to ask questions.
I actually figured out how to stop the iMovie and take screen shots! So here goes!
Get everything ready.
Wet and apply Plast'rcraft around and then across the face. Do 3 layers, do not cover the nostrils! Place a nylon loop, after the first layer, at the top for hanging. (I use fishing line.)
Let the stuff harden, this will depend on the person's core temperature as to how long until you can pop it off. Figure between 10-20 minutes. Then cover up the nostril holes.
It needs to dry and then it's ready for whatever the artist decides to do to finish it.
To go faster and look nicer the eyes- are covered. These masks are intended to be decorative. Students are paired off to work. And as they finish, they are paired off again until everyone is done. Parent volunteers come in to help. Admin gets a sub for my other classes. One hour per class of 20-24. I get a 20 lb. box of Plast'rcraft which should be enough for 80 students.
I would be happy to answer any questions you have!
