Making a Mask

Every member of the sixth grade class at school had to make a mask of their face for the history unit they're doing.  Ethan and I went yesterday to make his. 
Eww...this feels gross!
First, you have to pull all his hair back with a fabulous hair band.  Next, you lather a ton of vaseline on his face to make sure those great eyebrows don't get ripped out. 

Then, you cover his face with strips of paper covered in a plaster powder that causes it to stick together, forming a mask. 

It takes a little while to dry but when it's finished, you have a mask of your face!  Once they're completely dry, the kids will paint them.  Pretty cool project!
