Roger Wheeler who makes fabulous masks (including masks for the Fremont Solstice Parade) will be demonstrating how he makes his mask/sculpture creations in papier mache at two FREE demos on Wednesday, July 13, 2011 at 11am and again at 1:45pm.

At the demo Roger will be making his Cheetah Mask and you will learn how as he demonstrates these steps:
1. Forming the subject in modeling clay on a hard hat, in this case a cheetah.
2. Layering recycled paper strips on top of the clay with DS wheat paste.
3. Showing what the subject looks like dry and off the mold and covered with Daniel Smith gesso.
4. Showing the end result after having been decorated and painted with Daniel Smith acrylics and varnish. And maybe sharing some thoughts about how it might be used in a performance.
