I know someone on this list does masks covered in tightly twisted colored
ropes of crepe paper streamers. She and her students twist the streamers
using an electric, hand-held mixer. However, I can't remember what the base
of the mask is, and I can't remember who does these. Anyone know? Also,
someone (Bunki? When in doubt, say Bunki) does wonderful repousse metal

Subject: mask making ideas?

Hi, all. I'm new to the list.
I'm volunteering as Programs Coordinator for an arts-based nonprofit in
Houston, TX. We conduct art & theater workshops in which middle school
youth (including at-risk and potentially at-risk youth) work with adult
mentors on various projects.
To go with a Halloween theme, we're holding a half-day workshop on
mask-making in late October. We are borrowing space to hold the workshop
from an area theater, so we need to make this as mess-less a process as
possible (no papier-mache, little or no paint) so that we don't lose the
theater's good graces. I'm hoping that you wonderful people can help me
with ideas for making/decorating masks without too much oozy gooey wet
I'd love to incorporate Dia De Los Muertos themes, too, since the majority
of youth in our program are Hispanic.
Thanks for your ideas!
