So I passed a shop in town today selling these exquisite Venetian masks, so I popped in and had a chat with the sales guy, and was amazed to learn they were only made of papier mache and acrylic! And stuff like feathers, sequins and stuff stuck on, but they were really stunning. So I says, I wonder if I could do that. So here's stage one, papier mache layered onto a mask mould I had at home. Lets see how it goes!
