Papier-mâché performing mask created through a direct method. From Benda's Book, Masks.


“By the direct method” means he built a wire armature for the circumference, profile, brow, etc and slowly added tissue paper mache on to it until the surface was complete. As apposed to making a mold and adding paper mache onto that.
