Giant puppet masks

I'm making these large giant puppet masks. The base is made out of chicken wire and shaped so that there is an entrance for my head. It's covered in strips of newspaper and PVA glue, then the final layer is toliet tissue and glue. This helps to make the structure really hard when dry. There are two tiny wholes near the painted on eyes so that the person wearing it can see. Just need to add hair now and I'm also thinking about a bread on this one.
