Ah I see you have a serious interest in what I have going on! ;)
That's exciting.

What I am doing is using the centuries-old technique of Venetian pressed-paper Carnival masks to make horror and monster themed masks. I find it exciting to use such an age-old method to create such oddities, and I wonder what kind of splash my masks would have made at an early Carnival celebration.

Each mask starts with an original clay sculpture of mine that I then make a mold of. I hand-make the recycled paper that is pressed into the mold with a binding agent to make the mask. After drying and finishing, each mask is individually painted with high-quality oil and/or acrylic paint to give it a vibrant, luminous finish. I do not use any materials that were not available to the original Venetian mask makers as far back as the 13th century.
