The Mask – it’s done and dusted!

About two weeks ago I posted a pic of my ‘Mask’ painting and was thinking about what else I wanted to do with it.  Soooo –  I dragged out my craft bits and pieces that have been laying around – in some cases for several years – and went crazy sticking individual gems, tiny sequins, buttons and so on in as many places as I could.

You can see the painting before I went nuts HERE.

Once the glue had dried thoroughly I gave it a light coat of acrylic varnish which I thought would also help keep some of the bits firmly stuck down.  Well, not sure that worked, but in regards to the tiny gems, it certainly makes them more shiny when the sun hits them.  There is also quite a lot of gold paint – but again you only really see it when the sun hits it.

So without further waffle, here is the finished piece.  Sadly it’s hard to get the ‘glow’ of the stuck on pieces, so you’ll have to imagine it. HA!  The colours are also more realistic in this one than the other pics I have uploaded.  (Probably because finally today, it’s nice and light and sunny!)
