Lion Masks at Art Camp
I'll be making these lion masks next week at an art camp where I teach. I started with an 8 x 11" grey rectangle that is about the same weight as poster board and cut the holes for the eyes. The strips of paper for the mane are scrap-booking paper, but could be anything that has a little weight to it. The stick for the mask is cut from corrugated cardboard, curtesy of my A&P. Originally I glued the mane onto the back, but I preferred how that backside looked, so decided to use if for the front(the face). I cut semi-circles for the ears, and folded back a little edge on the bottom in order to glue them down so that they are not flat against the face.
