Take any oval shaped medium sized bowl, grease it well by using a little amount of oil. Pat the papier mache all over it evenly. Make a trunk shape and attach it to the oval shape by merging the papier mache neatly at one end of the bowl.
Make big ears for Lord Ganesha separately, further to be attached to the face.
Leave the mask to dry for about 2 to 3 days. It will take the shape of the bowl. When the face has semi dried attach and stick the ears appropriately with Fevicol MR.
Remove the papier mache face from the bowl after drying. Refer to the image.
Draw and cut the petal shaped eyes from the mask with a sharp paper cutter.
After the face has dried, stick the tissue paper all over from the front and the rear sides of the mask to make it stronger using Fevicol MR.
