Canvas Mask

I rolled out various pieces of clay after making it with Powertex and Stone Art.

I stamped into it and also used a small cookie cutter to cut out the squares.

I then put smaller pieces on to fill in some of the gaps. 

Close up of the stamping and cut out shapes.

I cut some circles out and placed them on the face too.

Once it had thoroughly dried, I painted areas with ochre Powertex and then once dry I also used black.

I sprayed with yellow, brown and black Bister. Drying between each colour.

I filled the spaces in with black Powertex.

I added various colours of paints and pigments, starting with the matt colours and moving onto the metallics until I was happy with what I had.

View from the side, so you can see how much the mask protrudes.

More close ups of the metallics to hi-light the stamping.

The size of the canvas is 10" x 12" and I used a £1 mask from The Works.
