Baphomet in paper clay.

Made by David Fitzgerald

Hi this is my first paper clay mask. I am using this material from now on. The mask was for a client..my favorite part was making the horns –  rolled up news paper then masking tape then paper clay on top of that…Jonni you rock!!!

  1. You rock, bro! Your talent is off the charts. Everything is well done. No doubt it will be the star of the show.

    (I won’t say I started one of these figures years ago. Maybe you can inspire me to get back to it.)

    Thanks for showing us. Hope to see other masks soon!

      • When your exhibition is ready, I hope you’ll send us a link to a website so we can all see it online. Those who live in your area will want to go visit in person, I’m sure. 🙂

          • Sorry for MY late reply 🙂
            I read online that carta lana is called cotton moleskin in many parts of the world. I haven’t looked at either in person, so I can’t say for sure, but it might be worth looking into!
            I came back and looked at your Baphomet again just to get inspired. Really great work!!!
            I’ll post mine here at some point 🙂

            • Thank you so much ..yes i found some carta lana..not used it yet but i have used Sugar paper..and it works great and much cheaper to buy..will post picture soon of results.

          • That is absolutely awesome!!! Off the charts! Don’t know if this is useful or not, but here is a link to a blog mentioning some kind of eco 15% wool paper by Favini. Gave up trying to find Carta Lana. The last company I bought some from was call Fearless Facade it was the 400 gauge. Finally going to try to use it for making a Mother’s Day gift. Anyway, hopes this helps!

  2. She does rock, but so do you! Great mask…is it based on some character that I don’t know or is it from your imagination? The attention to detail is impressive!

    • Hi Eileen thank you so much,its based on a god worshiped by the Knights Templar…i also mixed in the Scandinavian yule Goat that’s why i added bells,it sounds great when the actor moves about.im working on a collection of occult Maskes from around the world for an exhibition im planning later this year..im working on a voodoo god named Baron Samdi at the mo all of the masks will be made of paper clay,what a brilliant material i love being able to make it up myself so cheaply also its so light and tough when dry.Thanks for the lovely feedback FITZ.
