Masks have always been a fascination of mine. The disguise they offer and how inscrutable they make the wearer. In fact I have a large collection over 200 masks and faces not made by me but from all over the world, these used apparently used to freak my son out, they hung along the hall wall. Now they are carefully packaged and stored away, those that do hang indoors these days were all decorated by me.
This paper mâché mask had card cutout shapes attached to the back and then everything sprayed with various paints, those were the nozzle had not become blocked. Torn music score attached with decoupage glue, which was used to cover the entire piece moving some of the water based paint around. Next coloured metallic waxes were applied. Rubber stamps and gold ep added to the decoration and finally everything topped off with feathers.
Now hanging in my hall thought I'd share this with:
A bit more Time to Craft Extra Challenge, a monthly Anything Goes Challenge that does not appear to be too cutsie.
Altered Eclectics, another monthly challenge this one says no cards. It's great to see they are still going.
Country View Challenges, their theme is Anything but Cute and their DT have shared some amazing face images.
Now that is quite enough for me dipping why toe back in the water but think you'll see more here soon.
