The Mask and More Masks Site
The whole thing developed from my mask making courses at the Commonwealth Institute in London. The teachers and other students that I taught needed background information. I compiled much of the following for that purpose. Later additons have followed as my knowledge has expanded.
Below is a list of the content and the links that you need to access the site.
