Maskmaking
By Carole Sivin

Detailed instructions cover the full extent of the maskmaking medium, from simple paper-plate and paper-bag masks for young children to complex plaster and clay applications for older students, teachers, performers, artists, and craftspeople.

Photos of finished masks and a section devoted to finishing and decorating techniques inspire inventive treatment of basic maskmaking applications.

A complete list of suggested materials is included, along with suggestions for employing masks as a creative teaching resource. You’ll be sure to find uses for this book as varied as the many faces you can create.
