My husband and I were going to a mardi gras party and although I had plans for making a mask earlier in the week, I ran out of time.  The day of the party there was a carnival so we were at the carnival all day with the kids...when we got home, I had 3 hours until the arty and a hard decision to make:  nap or make a mask.
So i made a mask.
I got the idea from goblin art mask site:  http://www.goblinart.com/2011/01/make-mask-from-plastic-bottles-happy.html

And made it from things I already had.
Ta-da!!!!!



and the supplies:





I cut the plastic, used the heat gun to form it, used the hot glue gun to go around the edges and create the swirls.  I used the mod podge and tissue paper to paper mache it and create a paintable surface.  Then I painted some blue and purple and used some irridesent (sp?) powder to make the paint a bit more interesting.  I finished with the copper paint and hot glued a wooden spoon to the back (trimmed off the spoon part).
I love how it turned out and even I am amazed that it only took 2 hours.

Here are some other views:





and a picture of me with the mask...I look a little insane on the other side of the mask!  lol
