a plastic base mask from a craft store

cheesecloth or tobacco cloth

acrylic glaze, flexible glue or white glue

Non-toxic paints, decorative do-dads like feathers, fake flowers or rhinestones, as the design requires.
+
We find that the larger, longer penises we want for our show sag a bit with this system, so we alter the rigging slightly as shown below
 
+
Step 1: Make a sketch of the design you wish to produce, including a plan for the 3-D bits.

Step 2: Take your plastic mask, compare it with the rendering, mark it and cut to match the plan:

This works splendidly.  
  
[[File:254images254photos33081.jpg]]Step 3: Cut and shape pieces of foam, cardboard or poster board to make the 3-D parts of the mask. Hot gle them to the mask on a "cool" setting.

[[File:254images254photos33091.jpg]]
+
[[File:254images254photos33101.jpg]]
  
Step 4: Take your tobacco cloth or cheesecloth and lay it over the whole of the mask, stretching and tucking it around the 3-D parts. Tack it loosely in place in a few spots with hot glue so it won't shift.
+

+
[[File:254images254photos33105.jpg]]
  
Tuck the outer edges under the mask and tack them with hot glue, being careful not to pull them too tight. You want to keep the wrinkled texture, and a little extra material to be tucked in the crevasses at the next step.

+
[[File:254images254photos33111.jpg]]
  
Step 5: Using the acrylic glaze or glue, dampen the cloth thoroughly and use a paint brush to tuck the cloth into the crevasses. Dry.

[[File:254images254photos33116.jpg]]
+
[[File:254images254photos33114.jpg]]
  
Paint the surface of the mask with the colors and design you want, and allow the mask to dry again.

Step 6: Finally you can use hot glue to affix any other decorative elements like feathers, ribbons, rhinestones, artificial leaves, etcetera. You can use

+
[http://www.allspecies.org/edu/maskmaking.htm|Mask Making Instructions] or one of the sets of additional instructions below, to get ideas about how to further build/decorate your mask. Try to get the mask to look as much like your intended design as possible. Any material is ok as long as it works.
+
 
+
When it is finished, photograph the mask as jpeg files and post them to your File folder at the class
