Connect with an ancient culture with Model Magic Presto Dot masks! Discover what role masks played in Aboriginal life, and apply their distinctive artistic style to make a unique creation.
Aboriginal masks were used for a variety of ceremonies, rituals, dances, and to honor ancient spirits in the culture. Have students examine traditional Aboriginal masks. How are they decorated? What shapes do you recognize? Do the shapes, colors, and designs have special meanings to the Aboriginal people?
Students design their own Aboriginal mask creation! Cover a blank mask armature or paper plate cut into a mask shape with a thin layer of Crayola Model Magic®. Be sure to tightly cover any unused Model Magic to prevent it from drying out.
Students decorate their mask using Model Magic Presto Dots™! Flatten a small amount of Model Magic on a hard surface, like a table. Firmly press into the Model Magic using a Presto Dots tool. Twist the tool slightly and lift away from the flattened modeling compound. Gently press onto the mask. Model Magic that is fresh from the pack will stick to itself. Dried pieces can be glued together.
Students experiment with different Presto Dots tools. What shapes work best for the facial features you want to create? Learn how to blend and swirl the Model Magic colors to create interesting effects?
Be creative! Embellish the mask by layering dots, weaving braids, and molding unique 3D forms!
