On my lunch hours at work, I decided I would make something for my father's birthday, So I started to sculpt a mask out of Plasticine for him. I am in love with Commedia D'ellarte style masks and so I tried to make him look like a typical Jester mask from that time.  I then utilized the handy dandy vacuum-form machine at work and put the plasticine underneath it to get a pull of this face.  Then I sprayed spray adhesive on the plastic so that paint would stick to it, and proceeded to put on a base coat of white. I made thin cardboard triangles for the jester's hat and taped wire to the sides of the triangles so that I could bend it to the shape I wanted. I covered them with fabric and gimp, then attached them in a splayed fashion. I then twisted them to the shapes I wanted.  I finished painting all the details using a gold pen for all the gold detail. 



 My father the big joker, really loved the gift and it now sits in their living room!

Yes, it is life sized.  Although I didn't make it to be worn, as the eyes are not cut out.. It was made merely for decoration.
