Re: plaster masks--how to mount on board?

<<Funny, my fifth graders are working at present on a similiar idea. They are creating self portraits. I call it a visual autobiography because they are painting their interests and hobbies, etc. on illustration board for a background. Then I will attach their plaster faces to the board with a hot glue gun. >>

That IS funny, because this was a project that my students suggested doing. (I had them make suggestions re: a special project to work on before the Christmas break--this was their top choice, after voting on LOTS of cool suggestions!)

Once the mask is glued to the board, they can do what they want--some may want to paint it realistically, some might paint a scene of importance to them over the whole thing, some might do collage, others have brainstormed the idea of gluing small objects and pictures to the board, etc. etc.

Can't wait to see what they do with this!
