This old woman maskwas made using as a model a photograph by Edward Curtis, one of my favorite photographers.
I made the entire head for the armature, but I didn’t cover the back. After the video was posted I hung her on my wall. Next year I might make a scarecrow-like body and put her in front of the house for Halloween, but I’d need to cover it with a few coats of marine varnish if I do that.
Anyhow, the video shows how it was done. This is probably the fastest sculpture I’ve ever done with any kind of paper mache. I wasn’t trying to hurry, it just worked out that way.
OK, now it’s your turn. Are you in the Halloween mood yet?
