PAPIER-MACHE MASKS

construction of a frog mask

Papier mache is a well established craft technique, it is easy to learn and uses readily available and cheap materials. It involves building up layer upon layer of pasted paper, which is then baked or left to harden and once dry can be painted.

The frog mask above was made for the Broads Authority Redgrave Lopham Fen.

The Egyptian Pharaoh mask and the monkey mask were made with the members of Swaffham Referral Unit.

The bird masks on the right are my own and made with a frame-held clay base covered over with papier mache with paper feathers added.
