First Mask

The beginnings of my first mask.  The sculpting was done fairly fast so the features aren't exactly how I'd like them, but it's all just a first run. Novice Mode Commenced!!!

First, general form.

Defined features

 Plaster poured over the clay to make the mold.
 Clay removed.
I need a lot of practice for this.  The plaster is probably going to be the hardest part because it sets so dang fast.  I have a lot of air bubbles on the inside surface of the mold.  Yup, need a lot more practice before I pour plaster directly on a human face.  BUT I STARTED!  I'm so excited for the next phase, which will be in about a week, after the plaster has fully expelled the moisture.

Sand Art

I went to Cape Disappointment this last weekend and started playing in the sand.

Birthday Card

A card for a friends birthday.  Inspired by the Art Nouveau style.
