Paper mache should be fine. Sand the whole mask first though so the mache will stick to it better, then use a good 3 coats of paper mache (letting each layer dry first) then sand that smooth, then use (if different from mache paste, but this is what I use rather then the flower method) white glue with a bit of water, and mix it up and coat it over the mache in about 3 layers. This will help it be real smooth. Then you an paint it
