This unit in Art class, we are working on 3D creations. I chose plaster as my medium, which I had never worked with before, to try something new. My original idea was to create some sort of old italian renaissance mask, but due to lack of ideas, I decided to take it a step further, and create a message with my piece. For my final, I will be making a mask (which I have already done) with strips of a plaster-covered gauze, which when dried, solidify into the shape I have formed it on. My idea was to cover the mask with words or names that can be either hurtful, and/or labeling (ie smart, freak, dork, ugly, athletic, ext.) Any ideas? At this point, I feel that the mask is a bit dull, and I want to make it a bit nicer. I can also do something with the other side of the mask. Thanks! Look forward to hear back! :)
These are my masks- the one with the words on the left is a practice I did, modeling what I want to do with the final (the one with tears on the right). I have already painted over the final in white paint, the words in black paint, and the tears in blue paint.
