Mask WIP 2

The mask is 80% complete and will be finished today. Here is what was done to it yesterday. Black clay is on it now and I have put gold leaf on a sheet of pearl clay.

Made long ropes from the gold leafed clay and added rhinestones.

I made the plaster face from a plastic mask I picked up. I just put it in the oven along with the clay. The photos above are from before I baked it. I propped up the curls on the top with balls of aluminum foil. The wire mesh probably would have held it out straight but I did not want to take any chances.
The finished mask my be seen at the Masquerade Clay Ball.

I can't wait to see this finished. Is it done yet?

Also, because you're one of the most creative people I know, there's an award for you over at my blog. **hugs**

Yes, it was finished the day I posted this on the blog. It will be listed this weekend. I have not finished the 2nd mask and wanted to list them at the same time.
