Mask for Ben

May 2009

A Venetian style mask, felt lined with a gloss finish. My friend Ben (modelling the mask) had a design for a mask he wanted made. I took a cast of his face and turned that into a plaster copy. Onto the plaster I sculpted the mask in clay, then took another plaster cast of that. Into that plaster mould I papier mached the mask. Painting was done in enamels with a gloss laquer after that. Half the face is smooth while the other half is melting. Ben informs me it is very comfy.
