I finally managed to get an image of the masks printed. Enjoy.
All storybook characters that Ebenezer Scrooge, in our play, saw as part of his childhood.
In order, Hasan (a handsome youth who fell asleep in Cairo, and woke up at the gates of Damascus), Scheherezade the storyteller, and Ali Baba are in the top row.
Second is the twins, Orson and Valentine, abandoned in the woods as children. Valentine was found and raised as a knight, Orson was raised in a bear cave.
Third is the Parrot, Robinson Crusoe, and his man Friday.
They're all made from a basic plastic mask base from Michael's Craft Store, paper mache'd, molded for certain effects )big nose, beak, beards, etc.), painted, and then glazed.
Each one took, not including drying time, between 3 and 8 hours.
