Plaster!!!

This could be our biggest project of the year.  For this project it takes about 2 full weeks of work to finally get to the end of the project.  Each student gets their face plastered from the other people at their table.  We use plaster gauze to create these masks.  The students lay down on the table while the other students administer the gauze.  Once the students have two layers applied to their faces they are seated up front till the plaster can be removed from their faces.  Finally when all the students have had their face done we begin to paint.  Students are allowed to paint them any way they choose.  Most choose to do a Jackson Pollock splater paint.  The pictures below show the proceses the students go through along with some of the masks after they have been painted.
