Amazing Masks to Make Yourself 25 Projects for Funny and Frightening Faces to Wear! by Thomasina SmithYou can make masks from balloons, kitchen sponges, funnels, strainers, paper plates and other household items. It features inventive ideas that include a tiger face made from a basket, crazy cardboard glasses, a wicked witch, a teapot, and a spooky skeleton that actually glows in the dark! It covers simple instructions and over 250 fantastic photographs show you what to do every step of the way. It is ideal for 7- to 11-year-olds, with easy projects to start off with, and more sophisticated ones for older kids. So, choose a mask and have fun making and wearing it! Masks have a long and fascinating history. Their use and meaning have varied from culture to culture, but they have always transformed the wearer. Some were used in performance art, as in ancient Japan and Greece - and now you too can make your own Japanese Noh mask and a Greek tragedy mask. Masquerade is the tradition of using masks in balls and festivals. At the Carnival in Venice, thousands of people still dress up every year in fabulous masks - just like the Venetian mask and Spanish giant in this book. The projects are both easy and fun to make. They use all kinds of methods and materials, from papier-mache to everyday objects like leaves or even a kitchen sieve. Masks can be made for all sorts of uses, such as going to a costume party, for a school drama production or even just to hang as decorations on a wall.
