Unmasking your Alter Ego

Masks aren’t just for Halloween. Masks can also be a medium for creative personal expression. Craft yourself a decorative mask that represents your inner strength. Go face to face with yourself and sculpt a portrait of your alter-ego.

Instructions:

How to sculpt a mask of your alter-ego

Step 1: Place a handful of Claycrete in a bowl. Slowly add small amounts of water until the Claycrete is hydrated and malleable. Reshape your mask by moulding Claycrete pieces onto it. Let the mask dry completely.

 

Step 2: Once the Claycrete is dry, prime the mask with a layer of gesso or white paint. Leave it to dry.

 

Step 3: Paint the mask with acrylic paint. Mix your paint to create gradients or cover areas in contrasting colours. What colours are significant and powerful to you? Let your imagination run wild. Leave your mask to dry.

 

Step 4: Now it’s time for the fun part! Get inspired and add details to your mask that represent your alter-ego. Apply gold leaf or glitter in areas, use a hot glue gun to attach beads, gems, feathers or raffia. The sky is the limit for this creative expression project!

  • Paper mâché mask

  • Paintbrushes
  • Gold leaf
  • Glitter
