Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Giant Skull Mask finished: PICS


Hey hey Mark.
Thanks!

Yeah, it was made using the technique I call Paper Mache Bark, which is 
described in detail in mul;tiple posts on my blog:

The expressive possibilities of it are yet mostly unexplored. They feel like 
impasto on paintings should feel, but often doesn't (to me), because the 
effect with the paint is not as slef standing or as bold as I'd like.
with the paper however, I get peaks higher than I'll probably ever need.

When total smoothness is not wanted or required, and when texture is an 
essential, this method allows me to make a strong paper mache shell very 
quickly, in one application, cutting down the time by at least half, 
depending on the complexity of shapes to cover.

I've thrown that mask on the floor about 5 times since yesterday, and the 
effect (not a bump, not a crack, not a scratch, was convincing to those 
present who asked about the strenght of such a thing.
