I had never made a mask before so this was a completely new area for me but I loved it ! 

I started with a cheap plastic mask and used it as a mould with Modroc casting plaster 

Once the plaster was dry I glued on manuscript, book paper and twirls of string

 I painted all of this with a layer of Gesso. 

 The next stage was to add distress inks and paint the twirls and additional details 

 The final detail was to add some white painted highlights and perfect pearls dots

I really hope you join in with our challenge and look forward to visiting your blogs to see what you create, don't forget to pop over and visit my talented team mates too....Happy Crafting...Esther xx
