My Masquerade- Part II

Let's see how the mask is coming along. Shall we?

Stage II: Designing the Mask

The mask will be worn at a black & white themed ball and is for a man and a jovial one at that! So, I decided to go with a Venetian-inspired harlequin mask with a diamond motif.

I usually draw a rough sketch of the design, then use that drawing to block the outlines directly onto the mask with a Sharpie.

Next is the painting process. I used a variety of types and sizes of brushes to fill in the blocking I did earlier on the mask. Once I finished painting in the basic design, I covered the mask with a coat of acrylic sealant. Now, the mask will be left to dry thoroughly before the next stage: embellishing.
