This is an album I created for our sweet Maltese, Yuki.  I plan on making another for my roommate, Dawn who just got a new puppy, Hanna.

Here I will take you through the steps to create your own mask:

I was able to purchase these at the dollar store at Halloween and can’t believe they even came on a stick!

White gesso applied to the mask and then adhered some lace:

I added the Prima doily die and at the end it got all covered up…lol and added more white gesso.

IMG_2891

Then I started adding flowers, bling, lace and got so involved that I forgot to take pictures after this… Sad smile

So, these are the finished masks, as I did one in a light blue and the other in white, pink and black.  I sprayed these with Lindy’s Gang sprays:

PRIMA COLOR BLOOM SPRAYS~STEAMPUNK MASKS

Just wanted to share with you the finished masks I did on my Ustream Class on Wed. July 2nd.

IMG_2881

This is the finish mask with the gold tooth…lol

And if you miss the show I will share with you how I created the second mask using my octopus legs:

IMG_2834

First I gesso the mask and added the zipper.

IMG_2836

Then I added tissue paper from a sewing patter, cheese cloth and some dry wall tape.

IMG_2842

Then started to fill the brain in…lol

IMG_2848IMG_2851

Once I had everything I wanted on the mask I went over the whole mask with black gesso.

IMG_2850IMG_2852

Looks so creepy all in black….eek!

IMG_2858IMG_2863

Here you can see the difference from the black gesso and using the Prima Color Bloom Sprays.

IMG_2870

Here you can see the Color Bloom Vintage Coal and I love how it has a green patina color.

IMG_2875

And here you can see the different colors of the sprays:  Vintage Coal, Precious Stone, Vintage Gold and Worn Leather.

IMG_2879

The finished masks and I love how they came out.  Did you notice the little mask hanging on the sides of the mask.  I got them at the flea market and they are called “Passport Masks”,

IMG_2877

Well, I hope you enjoyed my first mixed media masks.  I hope you have a safe and joyful 4th of July!
