Freddie the Freeloader – Last-Minute Paper Mache Mask

This Freddy the Freeloader mask was my excuse to stay inside and play today.

I should have been outside shoveling chicken “compost,” but that wouldn’t have been nearly as much fun.

Items mentioned in the video:

If you remember watching Red Skelton when you were younger, do you think he was really having as much fun as he seemed to be having on TV? It sure looked like he enjoyed his job, didn’t it? I read on Wikipedia yesterday that he probably made more money selling his clown paintings than he did from his years on vaudeville, stage and TV, but I have no idea if that’s true or not.

If you’d like to make a mask or sculpture that looks a bit more realistic than the ‘last minute mask’ I made today, you can find patterns on my site here.

And remember to show off your own masks on the Daily Sculptors page. πŸ™‚

  1. Hi,
    Thank you for always sharing about your wonderful paper Mache projects.
    You have suggested color mixing recipe book for portraits do you have any suggestions for coloring animals and birds as well!
    Would love to know.
    Thanks once again !

    • I have quite a few books about drawing and painting animals, but the painting books are all written for people with way more training than I have, and they skip over the exact colors they’re mixing. I’ll ask my daughter if she has any suggestions for us. πŸ™‚
