Mardi Gras Mask Swap / Exchange

This was a lot of fun and what I had in mind actually happened with this piece.....  I purchased the feathers at a "Sportsman" store where I had QUITE a large variety of shapes, colors, types and sizes to choose from.  The colors I chose were pale yellow,  Thalo yellow green
and brown...for a naturalistic look to go with the painted side.

Before I began to paint the right side of the mask I primered  the entire mask  with Kryon Grey.... After I had done the scene with acrylic paints I began applying the feathers.  I didn't care for the "around the eye" so I had some heart shaped buttons I glued on along with a bit of glitter for some glam...

Spring is in the Air........and Mardi Gras is coming.

About Me

My photo
Bend, OR, United States
I have recently started some new artistic journeys. A slight branch in the road from my first love which is painting. I am hoping to combine my painting abilities with a bit of mixed media to stretch my creativity and think outside the box. I am also doing quite a bit of jewelry design and love the steampunk assemblage although I also love creating jewelry using handmade glass lampwork. Hopefully my journey and the information/photos on this blog will inspire others to think outside the box. Please check out my other blog and my Etsy site by going to my website. http://www.dianaputnam.com Thanks for stopping by....
