Happy Halloween 2015! Since I enjoyed making a cat mask last year, I thought I’d try to make another cool, colorful, tribal mask this year. I changed it up this time and made a wolf mask. (It could also be a fox or a dog.) I started from the same blank cat mask from Artists & Craftsman Supply, but I also added some paper mache elements (or papier-mâché to be fancy) to create a wolf face. Here’s some photos of my process below.
I took a few notes from artist Jonni Good at Ultimate Paper Mache. Following her projects gave me the confidence I needed to just go for it! I added a snout and pointier ears with foil and some masking tape. Then, I stirred up some flour and water (I just eyeballed the consistency) for some paper mache glue. I was really surprised and pleased that paper mache is so fast and easy!
After the paper mache, I went about adding construction paper tribal patterns all over the mask like before. Hooray for another fun mask project! Happy Halloween!
