Mixed media black and copper mask

Hello crafters !

Sometimes I created for a challenge, an event, or for a DT project. And sometimes I created just for me. The project I will present you today is like that, result of joy to create without limits.
It's a masquerade mask, created from a papier mache/cardboard form, black gesso, lots of embellishments and copper paint :

The Spring light made the paint appear more gold but it is really painted with Copper metallic paint by Prima Marketing. Glass beads and microbeads in copper too (Prima Marketing too).

I use IOD mold with air dry clay to create lots of the embellishments, but you could also find metal flowers and butterflies, papers flowers, a black lace and a beads string painted in copper too.

Love, love, love the result ! Very different from the previous mask I made in turquoise...
I think I should propose this project for a workshop... Would you come in a class with me to create this project ?

Thank you for reading this post, I hope you liked what you saw and you will come back soon for another project...

Have a great day !
