i made this mask out of melted plastic beads. i started out making a flat star shape using a cake pan in the oven, and then slowly melted it on a ceramic mask using a heat gun. i then cut/pulled off the excess and remelted it to form the stand.
i got this idea from instructables where someone melted plastic beads to make a torso sculpture.

  I have to say, your project has to be one of the most unusual and interesting pieces! I would love to see it with one of those new halogen/heatless lights inside! Thanks so much for sharing this with us!

Wow! That looks impossible to make. How hard was it? It really is ingenious. I would never have attempted something like this. It's amazing.

thank you...it is not as hard as it looks, first, i melted the beads into a flat piece in the oven then softened it with a heat gin and pressed it over a ceramic face mold, a little at a time until it took on the impression of the mold.
