I like them both a lot, especially the second.

Your masks are really lovely! I love the expressions on their faces! I really like masks.
I had a go at makiing some once. They're made from wire and material and latex. They're sort of tribal looking. I even painted a few real bones at put them thru their noses!

WOW your masks rock. I love the lacy effect you create on them, and their shapes are weary well done to give tribal feeling even thou you used weary non tribal materials.

These are cool. Can you see out of them?
Mask making is a particular interest of mine...very addictive!
(I love your first one)

Wow, it's been such a long time since I've posted anything here. Feels weird. Anyway, the way I made those masks was to make a big stiff double wire framework then sew fabric into the gaps, using beading wire to sew with. I actually then gave the fabric a few coats of PVA glue to stiffen it up. I grabbed a few bones from around the place and painted them and attached them with wire under the noses. Hope that makes sense?
