Paper Mosaic Aztec-Inspired Masks Next Up in the Classroom
Mid-week break in the Reader Appreciation Giveaways so people can catch up. My students and I embark today on the mosaic process of our Aztec-inspired masks. Everyone has their cardboard face created and gesso'ed black as well as their color map completed; now we begin the slow process of cutting and gluing small pieces of colored cardstock to stimulate turquoise, coral, gold, silver, obsidian, bone, and shell. Once the entire mask is covered, we'll apply a touch of faux gold leaf and finally, add a topcoat of gloss varnish. I can't wait to see all the finished projects!
