Managed to complete the third mask I was doing, this one is another plaster mask but with a crescent moon at the side 😀
Since I made the Hannya mask I wanted to have a wee go at creating my own type of Venetian carnival mask, since I luv that stuff, so I played around with some plaster and dug into my bag of randomness and conjured this up….
The robes i wore were made by a friend, you can check her crafts out and she does commissions on this stuff! 🙂
Here’s something I’ve worked on for Halloween, a Hannya mask inspired by Onibaba!! ^^ ★
★1st step : take a blank white mask and layout the shape of the design with newspaper
★2nd step: start placing sheets of plaster on top (dip in water first) , you can get roles of plaster in art stores…. ^^
★3rd step : keep laying the plaster on and around the shape you want
★4th step : add the teeth to the mouth 😛
★5th step : paint white for base colour and I added PVA glue to make it smoother
★6th step : paint that thing!!!! 🙂 I used acrylics!!
★7th step : Go over with PVA again!! get that glossy look!!
★8th step : viola! presto!! …and one thing at the start re-change your string if it isn’t strong enough!! :P,
