    How to do it
    Guide step %d
    1
    Start by crumpling up a few pieces of paper and put them where you want to increase the size of the mask. Here it is the top of the head and the chin.
    Guide step %d
    2
    Dip the pieces of plaster bandage in water and model them onto the crumpled paper and mask.
    Guide step %d
    3
    Along the way, place small pieces of paper where it may be necessary to support the plaster bandage.
    Guide step %d
    4
    Cover the mask completely with plaster bandage and smooth it out. Note that the plaster stiffens reasonably quickly, but takes 1-2 days to dry completely.

    5
    Whilst the mask dries, some of the waiting time may be used to make some hair for the mask. Cut natural twine at a length of 35-50cm and pull on a bead. Make 3-5 pieces depending on how much hair you want.
    Guide step %d
    6
    Tie a knot around the bead, so it locks at one end of the twine as a "stopper".
    Guide step %d
    7
    Cut off the short end at the knot.

    8
    Make a "bead" by twisting Bonsai wire around an object for example: a brush handle.
    Guide step %d
    9
    Pull the Bonsai "bead" onto the twine, hiding the knot.
    Guide step %d
    10
    Pull beads onto the twine until the desired length is achieved, about 30-40cm.
    Guide step %d
    11
    Once the mask has dried after a day or two, it's time to paint it. Here it is primed with Plus Color.
    Guide step %d
    12
    Paint on the face paint. Do not do it too thoroughly. It should look a little smudged.
    Guide step %d
    13
    Finish the painting with a few details. For example, white dots.
    Guide step %d
    14
    When the mask is painted and has dried, make a small hole of about 2-3mm at the top of the mask to attach hair.
    Guide step %d
    15
    Pull the twines with beads through one of the large flat beads to gather the "hair" in a bunch.
    Guide step %d
    16
    Pull the twines through the hole in the mask and pull on another large bead onto the back of the mask.
    Guide step %d
    17
    Tie a knot or two on the back to fasten the hair.
    Guide step %d
    18
    Now cut a hole in the top of papier-mâché mask on the back.
    Guide step %d
    19
    Attach a string through the hole for hanging.
    Guide step %d
    20
    Use glue gun to attach an earring bent in Bonsai wire.
    Guide step %d
    21
    The finished mask.

    Variant of the mask
    This variant of the mask is made without hair and with more marked face painting. The possibilities are endless!
