The masks are covered with Foam Clay modelling material. The flaps on the masks are Foam Clay which is rolled flat on a plastic pocket, dried, cut out and “glued” on with Foam Clay.
The Carnival Tradition
In Spanish Cadiz the traditional carnival parades displays colourful masks and headdresses. The famous Mr. Punch hat is often seen in the procession - and we have tried to recreate the style by making so-called flaps using Foam Clay on the full face mask. The flaps could also be made from felt, fabric, metallic foil card etc. Unleash your imagination.
Decorate the papier-mâché mask with Foam Clay and let it dry.
Roll out some Foam Clay with a rolling pin and let it dry for approx. 24 hours.
Cut the rolled out Foam Clay slab into triangles or other shapes using a pair of scissors.
Glue the cut-out shapes onto the mask using more Foam Clay.
