- Use Crayola Modeling Clay to build up the mask form. This will be your mold.
- View the mold from the side to be sure you have built up the features to make them really stick out.

- Cover the mold with small pieces of torn newspaper dipped in water.
- Tear small pieces of white newsprint into a small pile.
- Tear small pieces of recycled newspaper into another small pile.
- Pour Crayola School Glue into a container.
- Add a small amount of water to the glue to thin it slightly.
- Dip a piece of the white newsprint into the glue mixture then place it on the mold.

- Add 5 layers of paper alternating between newspaper and white newsprint.
