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.
