Midnight Masquerade Dance!

Midnight Masquerade Dance!

Now this is what I like to do, help out by doing something creative.  I like helping out but my full time job is  out of state so my commuting hours are crazy.  So anyhow, I made 18 masks in three evenings, (1) I first painted all the masks (2) I mod podge all the sequins to all masks (day 3) I added all the gems, and feathers  it was a combined total of 11 hours.   Each is unique, no two are exactly alike.  I hope the school gets to sell them all, and the kids enjoy wearing them at the dance.

Here are some of the materials used - missing is the hot glue sticks /gun used to glue the feathers and gems

here are a few of the masks - after paint was applied, I used  plaids  products, apple barrel, extreme glitter, and the Martha's new  paints

Here are some of the 18 completed masks, the time is wrong on this photo it was 1am when i finished, so I left them over night to dry out completely.
