Do you think putting resin on the mask after it was done to kind of harden the mask would affect anything?

I'm not sure! Perhaps the clarity of the words or the matte vs shininess of the finished product. I've never really worked with resin before. =)

This is incredibly beautiful and such a wonderful idea. <3 Thanks for the little tutorial on the other various comments all the same. :D It'd be a great experiment to try out. :D

Fantastic mask and concept, but how was this done exactly? I'm really interested to try it myself.

Thank you!
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 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. And then add some ink designs and glue some stud-pieces on. =) Helpful? It's really fun to do; I totally recommend trying it!
