Burned Book Mask 3 by raena-nayrue Burned Book Mask 3 by raena-nayrue
This mask is FOR SALE! www.etsy.com/listing/125951493…
another burned book, a short story from the Cicada anthology of 2004

Edit:
Wow!! I had no idea this would be so popular! I'm blown away by this wave, guys! Thank you all so very much!
Because a lot of people have been asking, this is how I made the mask:
For this mask, I used a premade mask form from a hobby shop, but for most of the masks, I use plaster of paris bandages on my own face, getting as close to the shape as I can, then wait for it to dry. I then cut the edges and eyes the way I'd like them to look and give it a thin layer of paper mache or modelling paste to smooth it out. I then glue the quotes on the way that I'd like them to look and use a candle to burn the edges and the rims of the eyes. Then I tilt the mask a bit to burn the edges of quotes that aren't entirely glued down and put some smoke streaks across the face. For this one, I added a bit more charcoal to make it dirtier. =)
