paper mache in a day- mask

I have 6 teens coming to make masks today from the Asbergers Association of New England.
These kids are awesome, and they help me to get really organized in my studio. I want them to be able to make a mask and finish it in the 2 hour session, so I made one yesterday to see if it could be done.
Using construction paper it's possible to finish with color as the final layer.




 I had all these ginko leaves I had preserved in glycerine and water-( thanks Martha Stewart!) and with the leftover paper mache mix I glued them to a piece of rice paper.
