8th Graders took a look at ancient Incan masks from Peru. Using thin metal and a stylus, students used the technique of repoussage to create their own masks in the Incan style. For inspiration, students looked at Incan artifacts and designs. To give their mask age, 8th Graders brushed on a patina (or finish) to their metal. As a finishing touch, students strung their masks so that they could hang as decoration.
