Masquerade Masks

My methods of mask construction have been researched and developed over several years, based on the traditional techniques of Venetian mask-makers. All of my masks are completely hand made by me, from the carefully sculpted patterns and moulds to the layered papier m�ch� and crafted leather of the finished pieces. Papier m�ch� forms require several coats of gesso and repeated sanding to achieve a smooth surface before painting. Masks may then be further decorated with a variety of finishes, including metal-leaf, antiquing and crackle glaze. Some may also be covered in a range of fabrics including holographic designs, brocades, satin, antique lace, suede and kid leather. During this final stage, each mask takes on its own persona; no two masks will ever be identical, even if they are made from the same mould.
