A few years back our good friend Kieran decided he wanted to use Mauricio’s beautiful face to make one of his Papier Mache masks so the two of them set to and went to work on the mould as below.  First they covered everything that didn’t need to go into the mould, ie everything that wasn’t his face.  Then they put a layer or two or three of plaster of paris on his face being careful to allow holes around his nostrils so he could continue breathing and not die in the process.  Well I’m not going to pretend I know how to make a mask so I go no further with explanations, just some photos of the processOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
