Dan's Mask

Another idea for how to use and reuse newspapers...not that you can tell they are newspapers but it is good ole paper mache' as the base. I have a cement casting of Dan's face that I poured from a plaster bandage mold so I covered the cement with foil and then laid on newspaper and paste. After baking in the oven and in the sun the paper mache' was ready to be worked. I primed and painted and repainted (as usual) then added some of the circles , squares, words and (of course) a photo of Jessie. Th eye piece is hot melt glue I scribbled onto a foam board in some crazy old shape, let cool and then peeled off. Spray painted gold it adds a certain Terminator look to the mask........
