Art Is...Maskmaking with Foil

( 19:06 )

Peggy Flores presents an easy-to-follow demonstration of how to make innovative masks from foil. First, she shows the types and colors of foil, colorants, and sculpting tools. She uses tooling foil and regular aluminum foil in the step-by-step process of drawing, forming, sculpting the foil, and coloring, plus decoration with raffia, feathers, and faux jewels. She discusses the importance of masks in various cultures with an emphasis on metal masks and displays a variety of student masks. Maskmaking with Paper and Maskmaking with Clay are also available.
