This is how I was taught to do this...
|My sick daughter being a good sport|
- We laid a black garbage bag on the floor, with a towel on it, put a shower cap over her hair and put a towel over her chest to keep the plaster off of her. (at school the students laid on tables that had a plastic table cloth over the table to protect it)
- We had already cut 16: 3 inch x 1 inch and 16: 6 inch x 1inch pieces of plaster (like what you use for broken bone casts you get it at a medical supply store) we started out with a 36inch x 4 inch strip of plaster linen.
- We placed a warm wet paper towel over her face. So that you don't end up pulling out the eyebrows and other hairs on the face also to make it easy to remove.
- Outlined the face with the long strips of plaster that had been quickly dunked in water and laid an outside frame work on the face then filled in with the small pieces. Rub the pieces well to make as smooth as possible. Go to hair lines and under chin. Let dry for 10 minutes on face. Pull off and set aside to dry completely trim edges where the paper towel sticks out to clean up.
