Splatterhouse Terror Mask Completed

We understand how dangerous a mask can be. We all become what we pretend to be.

 This series of pictures shows the finishing steps for the Terror Mask.
Here it is after trimming, sanding and cutting the openings.

This is the mask after several coats of gesso and smoothing with wet sponge and sandpaper. At this point all the irregularities have been smoothed away. It is a thing of beauty.

A wash of burnt umber gave it an "old bone" appearance which is what I was aiming for.

(I have no idea what the red is or where it came from. Most likely from some accidental spill. We may never know the truth.)

A finishing coat of sealer to protect it from the elements, and some see-through black cloth hot-glued behind the openings completes the mask. I also glued a short length of dowel in back so it can be hung on a wall.

And that's the "Terror Mask" - I hope you're properly terrified. Now go make some masks or play "Splatterhouse"!
