BAAKO: First born child

My first mask design... hence the name (project ongoing)



The process:

  • sculpt the preliminary study of the mask with modelling clay

  • prepare the paper clay (papier-mâché) with leftover pulp from my recycled handmade paper making process 🌿♻️💚

  • add an initial layer of papier-mâché to the modelling clay base

  • add more refined papier-mâché to define the facial features

  • remove modelling clay from dried mask

  • sand, seal, paint and add details
