A friend of mine recently threw a masquerade party for his birthday (which is an excellent idea for a party and I'm so mad I didn't think of it!) for which I made this mask. I had a little craft cat mask and thought I'd just paint on it, but I didn't like the shape enough so I paper mached it into this. It was the first time I'd paper mached since elementary school and it was so fun! It took a lot of time and it looked like Batman's mask, but after a while I got it whittled into a more feline shape. When it was dry I painted it with craft acrylic and added some painted-white craft wire whiskers. I really want to make more paper mache stuff but I don't know what. Maybe I should make a pinata for Cinco de Mayo?
