Bird Mask

Steps:7
Elaborate masks worn at Venice's famed "Carnevale" inspired these avian creations. The long nose on this papier-mache mask becomes a bird's beak, surrounded by crepe-paper plumage in gray or yellow. This mask calls for two types of crepe paper: thick florist crepe paper in gold, and regular (or fine) crepe paper in the remaining colors.
Materials

  • Foam brush
  • Acrylic paint in a base color (gray or yellow) that matches the feathers to be added, misterart.com
