Is the mask itself clay? Or do you have a base mask that you sculpt onto? It always makes me happy to see people use polymer in different ways.

Yep, entire mask is clay (see post above for more details about construction)--thanks for checking out my post! Smiley

Very beautiful...love the colors too.
When you painted it, did you airbrush for the purple fading or just brush it?

actually, when u apply the powder BEFORE baking, it makes a permanent bond (however, still need to avoid swimming with the mask on, on wearing during sports---not that one would do either wearing the mask, but still).

when u apply powders or acrylic paints BEFORE baking, makes a more permanent bond, and needs no sealing. however, when applied after curing, must be sealed with a product

You're doing more and more lovely work these days!

(This is Tam BTW)

I just finished sculpting a mold for a tentacle mask - when I put the paper mache on it I will post stuff on the blog: TresMagas.blogspot.com

And now that I finally remembered my password for this site, I can post it here too Smiley

Best,
