New Orleans Mardi Gras mask

Hello !

During the Holidays, I went back to France and went to a craft store where I knew I could find some papier mache mask like the one I altered last year in black (see it here) or the older one in turquoise (see here). This time I decided to make one using the Art Anthology products for their blog :

I applied Dazzle clear coat over the black gesso and before painting randomly with Emerald Dimensional Gemstones medium and Mardi Gras Velvet medium.

I also applied some Gold Metal Effect medium for more sparkle...

Once again I used a lot of embellishments... Flowers, paper clay with moulds, mini stones, metal embellishments, plastic buttons, even strings of beads !

Will you wear it for Mardi Gras yourself ?

I really really love creating this kind of project ! I will share my love with you in a tutorial video that you can watch on my YouTube channel, the Art Anthology blog or just here :

I hope you liked what you saw and you will come back soon see my other projects...
Have a great day !
