So I have discovered several things about making venetian-style masks:

a) using rice-paper soaked in watery watery glue is a very time consuming (and wet) process. The result is fairly smooth, and reasonably sturdy. It's also quite difficult to cut to shape once it is sturdy. . .

b) using "clay-crete" (100% cotton paper pulp) is a less time consuming (but still quite wet) process. The result is lumpier, and less sturdy than the rice paper variation, but it's much easier to shape (both removing unwanted portions and adding other forms). I'm hoping that I can "sturdy it up" somehow. . .

Mostly, I just like making a mess =)

Also gearing up to make a zillion wire heart-shaped earrings in preparation for our pre-Valentine's day show.

Maybe pulp covered with a layer of rice paper?
