Egyptian Death masks May 2021


Class 2 have been creating death masks in art.  The children took inspiration from Tutankhamun's death mask when designing their own. They created their masks by covering a balloon with paper mache, cutting it in half and attaching a cardboard headdress.   The children then used paper mache for the nose before painting Egyptian makeup onto their masks. They used gold, silver or bronze paint as the masks would have been made from precious metals in Egyptian times. Finally they added gems to make them even more authentic.
