Tiki mask

To celebrate the extra day of holiday (due to some sort of royal event) I travelled to my friends’ (Andy and Naomi) house for an Hawaiian party. We had a great time and drank a lot!

I’d been challenged by my friend Mark to create a Tiki mask for this occasion. So using Dan Reeder’s paper machĂ© techniques in his Paper MachĂ© MONSTERS book I set about creating one. It had to be light (I would be carrying it on the train through London) so I didn’t use any cloth machĂ©.
Here’s the construction using masking tape, blue packaging foam, cardboard, paper machĂ© and elephant tape and with plastic balls for eyes. (Thanks to my brother for tape dispensing and structural integrity help!) Painted with acrylics.

I remember The Simple Screamer and Heroes for Wargames books being my favorite borrows from Scunthorpe Central Library many years ago.
