Mask Making

Has anyone ever made masks with their students? I am wondering where I can buy cast making materials. What I found online comes in large quantities and is very expensive.
Thanks for any input you can provide.

I have made masks with my 6th graders for years. I order from Sax or Dick Blick and we use plaster strips. I believe there are two different sizes that they sell.

Try the Nasco web site below

I have made masks with my students. Another teacher and I shared a 20# carton. We made about 40 masks ( if I remember correctly we did have some left over)

They also sell smaller quantities.

School specialty also carries the Plast'r Craft

Hope this helps - it is expensive, but fun. I made the animals with forms from School Specialty this year.

Save money on plaster strips

I use plaster-impregnated gauze strips in my paper casting work, and I buy it in bulk quantities. Art and craft chains like Michael's and Hobby Lobby charge a lot for one or two rolls of the same material. Buy in bulk from Jerry's Artarama. Go to http://www.jerrysartarama.com/discou...loth-Rolls.htm to learn more. Also, I like to use the plaster strips in the first stages of paper mache. It makes the form stronger, and you don't have to add so many layers of newspaper.

They are plastic forms of animal heads the kids use to mold over. You can find them on the School Specialty page.

We made small masks out of casting material (plaster of paris and gauze) that was used to cast broken arms. My class made "faces" using a ball of clay and then we cast over the face. I pulled the cast off as soon as it hardened. Once dry we painted the faces.
