Pacific Northwest Coast Masks-- 3rd grade

The 3/4s viewed a video about Pacific Northwest Coast art.  They made a spirit animal mask using similar characteristics.  These are made out of paper mache and are painted with a limited color palette.

Funny how we all work in parallels. I'm about to begin a papier-mache mask project with my 3rd graders! We use a paper lunch bag as an armature to start (I'll be posting the process on my blog) so I'm wondering what is "underneath" yours? Just wadded newspaper? balloons? Or what?

And I should say that yours look super! I wasn't planning a limited color palette for mine, but they looks so nice, maybe I should re-think my plan.
