Just what we need
Just what we needed to do a project. Much cheaper than doing plaster of paris. Easy to decorate. Will get again for other projects.

Great for decorating - all ages
We used these masks to create Chinese Opera masks and Samurai masks with origami helmets. We glued scraps of rice paper onto the mask. The mask holds the glue really well and the paper was easy to manipulate once on the mask. We did this activity with kids from 3 years up to 12 years at the same time (in the same class). It kept them all happy and busy for 2 full hours (no complaining!!!) The masks are very thin plastic and at first glance I thought they were really poor quality, however, they withstood manipulation well, and if dented, were able to be punched out. The glue dried after a few hours and the kids were able to take it home that day. You could do so much with these masks - such a versatile foundation for a craft.

Worked Great - heed cons though
I was looking for DIY masks for my son's cub scout den. I did not want to pay $5 or more each for the masks at our local craft stores. The bear year (third grade) has an elective of making clown masks, which is what I purchased these for.
I bought these after reading the other reviews. They are very thin and I saw the review indicating that sharpies were needed. I picked up a set of colored sharpies and a black sharpie for each boy.
We had two packs and I stored them resting on a ball for support.
They boys had a great time making the masks! They were so creative making the masks. One boy was not in attendance, so I gave a mask and instructions to his mom. Later she told me he liked wearing the plain white mask!
These are thin children's masks and do need sharpies, Knowing this the products are great for projects!

A lot for my money
We haven't painted them yet so I can't tell you yet how it worked out, but they should look great on the tables.

You get what you pay for,
This was my first purchase from Oriental Trading. I was really hoping to have a better quality product. Though the masks sorta fits and an adult sized head, it is impossible to see out of them. Just another example, you get what you pay for.

I bought them hoping we could make our own masks but they were to small. it dose not say they would only fit children

These were purchased for an office event, "Fat Tuesday". The company paid for them. We have a pancake breakfast and I wanted to add something a little fun. What could be more fun than decorating your own mardi gras maks? The masks are definitely not for adults, and good luck decorating them. They are way to thin and flexible so what ever you put on comes off when the mask flexes. If you only want to use magic markers you'll be fine. I looked for a DIY mask that was a little more substantial but couldn't find one on this site. Now I have unhappy people on my hands and a very red face. :(

Good for the price
These masks were purchased for a project where the masks would be used as a form for the actual mask being made. They are a bit flimsy for the intended use. They would be fine for a mask to be decorated and worn.
