Set out mold for casting.
Prepare the Li-Qua-Che
Thin down the liquid mache’ using 1 part water to 2 parts mache’ in a mixing cup.
Pour liquid mache’ into the plaster sprig mold.
Gently shake mold back and forth to release any trapped air bubbles in the liquid.
*NOTE: Extra Li-Qua-Che’ may be poured back into its original container for future use.
Allow the liquid mache’ to fully dry. Drying time will vary dependent upon room temperature.
As the liquid mache’ dries it will pull away from the side of the mold and develop a hard crust on the edges of the forms.
Gently lift out the dried mache castings from the mold.
Smooth out any rough edges on the tribal mask castings using a fine sandpaper.
Paint castings the desired colors using acrylic paints. Allow to dry.
Turn castings over and apply a dab of adhesive to the back. Attach a magnet to each form.
Attach magnets to a metal display surface.
