The Italian word "volto" translates as "face." These full-face masks were known as "citizen's masks" because they were originally worn by common people during the Carnival of Venice. By draping acrylic felt over a reusable form and using rice paste (a gluten-free mach& alternative) to stiffen, students create a sculptural mask that can be decorated with materials such as paint, glitter, feathers, and rhinestones.
