GreenWoman by inkvine GreenWoman by inkvine
This is for :iconellygator: My Mask-My True Face Contest. This mask represents where I'm at in my life at the moment. I am in full fantasy mode and have a thing for mushrooms. It is my take on a green woman, and I dedicate this one to my daughter. With out her and her truly powerful imagination, I would never have realized I had stopped making art. Sorry for the poor photo quality, I reserve the right to replace these with better quality photos in the future.

Every thing is hand made, the mask and leaves are paper, the branches are wire wrapped in florists tape then built up with paper clay, mushrooms are poly clay.

if you have questions about technique feel free to ask. Materials: Paper, paper clay, wire, poly clay, florist foam, florist tape, moss (real and faux), ribbon, beads, and paint.

Do not reuse with out my permission


*edit* It would be impossible to thank everyone in a timely manner in person. Especially when the system keeps flagging my messages as spam. Thank you very much for taking the time to fave my art, you have made me very happy.  :]

It is paper mache that was built up over a plaster cast of my face. I then added other details out of paper clay and made the branches and mushrooms and painted with acrylic paint.
