Mask of Fire by WhatTheFuu Mask of Fire by WhatTheFuu
This is a mask I made a few years ago that is supposed to embody the element of fire, and I am very happ with how it turned out. This is one of the few pieces that I can look back on years later and not think it is awful.

The pictures I took don't do the mask justice, I hope to have new picture eventually

The mask took several days to construct, and is made from a variety of materials. The base for the mask is actually crayola modeling foam (which is actually not that bad for making bases and such)which i placed over another mask my mother and I made of my face when I was younger. The scales are all craft foam, the stuff that comes in sheets, that I cut into may different shapes, and I shaded with graphite on the edges to give them an ember-like look. The are also some bead, feathers, fake jewels and even a few pipecleaners. So this isen't reall a traditional sculpture, but I am still ver happy with it.

This reminds me of Brian Froud's artwork. He did the designs for the movies Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal.

That's amazing! Most people have no idea who he is. I actually collect his art books >.< I want to make movies featuring his other illustrations (such as art in the book Faeries).

That's wicked awesome, Nikki! Maybe it should go under artisan crafts or something? I dunno if that's a category...but it should be.
