Today i have an altered mask to share with you.
Of cause its another purchase from one of our pound stores but it looks so much better now, and shall now reside all year round on a wall in my dining room.... along with lots of other rather 'strange' things.
It started its life as an ultra shiny gold plastic mask.... after being sanded rigorously,
2x coats of gesso finally got rid of the bright gold!
I mixed up a fawny- tan-beige colour of acrylic paint and again used 2xcoats.
I stamped loads, and i do mean loads of images onto tissue paper and tore them out.
I mixed PVA glue with water and carefully applied all my images to the mask.
I allowed it to dry completely.... over night.... then coloured the images with promarkers.
I also tried to shade the background a little with promarkers so that the tissue has all but disappeared.
I used another to coats of watered down PVA to seal in the colour.
Cheap and cheerful.... but quite effective.
