This Freddy the Freeloader mask was my excuse to stay inside and play today.
I should have been outside shoveling chicken “compost,” but that wouldn’t have been nearly as much fun.
Items mentioned in the video:
- Instructions for making a fast, free blank mask form
- Book – Color Mixing Recipes for Portraits
- Video with the eyebrows made with Air Dry Clay and a garlic press
- Fiskars Easy Action Scissors
If you remember watching Red Skelton when you were younger, do you think he was really having as much fun as he seemed to be having on TV? It sure looked like he enjoyed his job, didn’t it? I read on Wikipedia yesterday that he probably made more money selling his clown paintings than he did from his years on vaudeville, stage and TV, but I have no idea if that’s true or not.
If you’d like to make a mask or sculpture that looks a bit more realistic than the ‘last minute mask’ I made today, you can find patterns on my site here.
- If you’d like to make a mask that looks more realistic, this video shows how to make a mask with paper mache over clay.
- And if you’re in the mood for a scarier, see my Ogre mask pattern here.
And remember to show off your own masks on the Daily Sculptors page. 🙂
