Preparation for a Masquerade

Giuliana_02

This month my partner and I attended a masquerade. In preparation for the ball we build our own masks.
My mask was a Black Swan with silver details and lots of black feathers.

The mask is made of Worbla, formed on a  gypsum cast of my head. It’s coloured with acrylic paint and décor composition silver.

 My partners’s mask was also formed on a gypsum cast of his head and painted the same way as mine. The hornet on top is made of super sculpey and aluminium foil.
