Mask design (project ongoing)
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
Sometimes I work on multiple projects at the same time. Imani, another mask can be seen in the photos above.
Zemora was also featured in an installation piece I did for Nuit Blanche 2020. You can check that project post here.
A peek at the installation below:
