HOW TO MAKE PLASTER MASKS

 (From http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Plaster-Mask)

1
Prepare your work area. Choose a room where you have a lot of space to spread out, since working with plaster can get messy. Lay newspapers or a drop cloth on the floor. Have paper towels handy in case a stray drip lands outside the covered area.

2

Prepare your supplies. Cut bandage plaster into strips. You will need enough strips to make three layers of plaster over the face.
  • The strips should be about 2-3 inches wide by 3 inches (5-7.5 cm x 7.5 cm) long.
  • Make some strips longer, shorter, wider or thinner. You'll need strips to cover all areas of the face.
  • Place the strips in a bowl. Set out a second bowl filled with warm water that you will use to wet the strips.
3

Prepare your subject. The person whose face you are using to mold the mask should wear clothing that he or she doesn't mind getting wet with drips of plaster.
  • Decide how much of the subject's face you plan to cover. It's best to have a conversation with your subject about his or her comfort level. If you wish to cover the entire face, make sure the nostril area is left clear so that the subject can breathe freely.
  • The process is easiest if the subject lies on the floor, but if he or she prefers to sit in a chair, wrap towels around his or her neck and shoulders.
  • Ask your subject to tie back his or her hair, and to pin bangs away from the face.
