Halloween Mask Making

Dad’s just catching up on the pictures, but here’s a sequence of the making of Geek’s halloween mask using the plaster of paris strips technique which we’d never done before.  It was fun and not terribly difficult, though a mask model who can stay still and keep their eyes closed while breathing only through their nose for 15-25 minutes is required (glad we didn’t try to do this when Geek was too young!).
