In our second session we started to add some character to our masks, with facial features. We began with a warm up, working in pairs and taking it in turns to draw our partner’s eyes, nose and mouth.
Once we had practiced drawing these features, we were ready to add eyes and a mouth to our masks. We put the masks on so our partners could draw around the edge of our faces, and we trimmed the outside of our masks to make them even. Then, we felt for our eyes and mouth with our hands, and pointed them out for our partners to mark them.
Once we had cut out the eyes and mouth we used more gum tape to strengthen our masks and used shredded corrugated cardboard to add distinctive features, like eyebrows and ears.
