Big Heads

- Paint
- Plastic Bags
- Masking Tape/ Duct Tape/ Packing Tape
- Accessories (optional)

1. Take photos of students and print out a front view, back views, and each side. If doing a celebrity or character, find images for all views and print.

2. Start by making an egg shape out of cardboard- use a LOT of tape. Sketch out where your eyes, mouth, and nose would be. 

3. Start building onto the form with plastic bags. I found packing tape to be the best tape because it laid smooth, covered the most surface area, and since it was clear, you had a better idea of what was being formed.

4. Paper Mache on top of plastic bags form.

5. Paint and add accessories! Some students wore theirs to a field trip to the Albright Knox! It was a labor of love, and I think I enjoy them too much... but it was such a fun project!
