I bought a number of these masks in The Works and showed you one decorated with Buff-It, ultra-sticky double-sided tape and glitter in a ‘Harlequin’-type pattern four posts ago.
Well, here is another design using the same ingredients – mask, Buff-It, double-sided sticky stuff (a sheet this time) and glitter.
First I covered the mask with silver Buff-It – again, as the mask is plastic and Buff-It is designed to work on more absorbent materials the first coat coverage wasn’t perfect. I could have applied a second coat of Buff-It to give more even coverage, but decided to leave the mask with the slightly ‘distressed’ look.
Using the Grand Calibur, some flourish dies from Joy and a sheet of double-sided adhesive I cut 3 flourishes and stuck them to the mask.
Then, having peeled the backing (or fronting) off the remaining side, glitter was applied to the sticky flourishes.
I think this gives the mask a more delicate, perhaps feminine look compared to the previous one.
I will be showing more decorated masks over time as I find them absolutely irresistible and have built up quite a stock of blank ones in different materials to experiment with – if you share my fascination with masks or any other types of crafty creativity please keep following this blog and let me know what you think.
