Masks in Action

Jen and Nush

Editors of magazines are often seen at swish parties, dinining with the famous and dancing with the rich. But I run Shock Paper Scissors, and we're far more original than that.

If you by now have read your copy from cover to cover, you'll recognise what I'm talking about: the masquerade! We featured a tutorial on mask-making, and more specifically on Venecian masks like these. They were really simple to make, and a great activity for kiddies.

In case you've forgotten, the masked ball that we went to was being held by the dramatic society which Jen belongs to. It was at a lovely place in Ongar, Essex; the ball was in a relatively small hall next to a big country house which had fantastic grounds. They even had a farm! It was very funny to look up from a plate of salmon to see a turkey approaching the window every few seconds.

Everybody's masks were stunning. There were a lot of very artistic creations which were gorgeous; from what I gather there was a large group outing to Hobbycraft at which glitter and sparkles were binged on!

The evening was very memorable, and the masks only made them better.

If you make a mask from our tutorial, we'd love to feature it here! E-mail at least two pictures of your creation to shockpaperscissors@gmail.com .
