mask #1

After visiting the surrealist exhibit at the LACMA, I was inspired to finally make a mask (it's been on my to-do list for a while!) There are things I would tweak for future masks, but overall I really like it! The material for the mask was a random scrap I got in a thrift store fabric bag and the lace was from a random bag of lace I picked up in the LA downtown fashion district. I go back and forth between wanting to do something to the lace on the outer most lace scallops to make them stick up vs. flopping over like it does now. I sometimes think I am more inspired by using pre-cut scrap type stuff than a nice, full piece that I hand selected.
