This article from the August 1931 issue of Popular Science outlines the basic procedure of creating paper mache masks. While I’ve personally never attempted this technique, it starts out with the same initial steps of sculpting and molding that are used in making rubber monster masks. I think I’m going to try making one of these for Halloween this year.

On a side note, if you’re into old Science and How-To magazine articles, do check out the Modern Mechanix Blog, where I found this article. There is an amazing wealth of scanned articles and ads to look through.
