Stern Slate

Oval grey papier-mache mask with curving vertical ridges on its forehead and cheeks.

Materials: CelluClay, acrylic paint.

Here’s one of the first masks I ever made. I kind of threw it together to use as a platform for painting experiments, because I didn’t want to mess up another mask I’d put a lot of time into. It’s too flat to ever wear, but could theoretically go on a wall, though I never installed the hardware for that.

Though very simple by my later standards, I think this has some character.

Right front of grey mask. It is very flat.
