Hello All, Tracey has an important point. I think there are more and perhaps less expensive materials to do a mask project. What about textile resist? I have used gel glue 9washable) as a resist. It is easy to get, reasonably priced, and works well.

Hi All<br><br>A question: why do we always get stuck on masks when we discuss African<br>Art? Is this not just taking the easy way out? If you take the whole<br>continent into consideration, the culture of masks is practiced in a<br>relatively small portion. Mural art, body decoration (piercing, body<br>painting) and personal adornment (jewelry) is much more widespread.<br><br>Come to think of it, body art and the varying ideas of beauty could make<br>for a very interesting lesson, especially if it is compared with modern<br>Western ideas of beauty.<br><br>Tracey in Durban, South Africa<br><br><br>---<br>To unsubscribe go to <br>>
