Self-Expressive Portrait Masks


This special project is one that students chose to do during the late fall of 2001. They created plaster gauze masks of themselves, and mounted them on 12 x 18 inch pieces of 1/4-inch plywood.


Students were able to finish their masks in any way that they wanted, using a variety of materials.


We use and recommend this plaster gauze sold by!
