Hi all I am Elaine (Ellapu) This blog used to be called Handcrafted by Ellapu but wanted to rebrand to KraftiKards Kreations. I have given up mixed media and am now into making cards. I had not posted since 2019 when I ran 2 challenge blogs, Eclectic Ellapu and Altered Eclectics. There were so many fantastic designers who tirelessly created such beautiful art and I would like to thank them if they ever come across my blog again. I do hope you enjoy my art
I recently bought some plastic face masks to decorate and couldn't wait to get going on them. I just did not know what theme I want to concentrate on so I just went with the flow.
I used paper mache for the basis of the mask for a couple of layers and used muslin for the final layer. The masks are so flimsy it would have made it difficult to work with otherwise.
Once I had completed the layering of material and it had dried I smothered the entire mask with modelling paste mixed with gold acrylic. I then embedded black spider netting into parts of the mask. For the remaining bare areas I mixed some crackle embossing paste with black acrylic, laid it over those areas and let it dry.
I sprayed the entire mask with gold shimmer mist. I then wiped some gold rub n buff over the textured areas. I also used the gold over the metal embellishments, butterflies, made up flowers and leaves. I trimmed the edges using a goldish braid.
Well that's it folks and I hope you have enjoyed visiting my blog and do hope to see you join in with this weeks challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu.
