Sculpture "Masks" Grades 1 - 7

The First Nations Beaver Mask above is made of multi-coloured plastiscene applied over a tinfoil "hump mould".  The Puppy Dog Mask is made of monochrome plastiscene. Either mask is excellent in clay. (These masks are not meant to be worn - only for hanging!)

A variety of sculpture mediums can be used. If full-sized masks are needed, potter's clay is recommeded. If mini-masks will do just as well, then more expensive media (like air-dry clay or plastiscene) can be used.
Plastiscene never hardens.
Air-dry clay will remain somewhat fragile once dry.
Potter's Clay can be fired. Firing requires the use of a kiln. Many schools without kilns make arrangements with their local highschool art teacher to have their projects fired! Bisque-fired pots (first firing) can be left as is or painted with tempera or acrylic paints. If you want the full pottery experience, we can do a second session after firing to learn glazing. (please be aware of the cost of glazes and the need for a second firing.)
