Demons and Candy, Oh MY!

Made by Rachel Hartmann

This was a mask I designed for a production of Godspell. It is done with a paper mache paste and a thin coat of plaster. I struggled with the initial sculpt of this mask design. I ended up using a mixture of clay for some of the face structure and aluminum for the horns. A few months ago I made a mold of the mask out of candy corn, which was an experience in itself. I created this design for a project in my college casting class. (I do not recommend casting paper mache in a silicone mold though, the liquid in the process tends to disintegrate the mask.)
