Ice Queen masks

I have finished my latest Ice Queen mask, this one is blue and it is now listed in my Etsy shop along with my other masks and mini Santa hats!

The Icicle masks are perfect for a masquerade ball or Winter Wonderland fancy dress event, they can be an Ice Queen, Ice Maiden, Snow Queen or Jack Frost, they tie with long organza ribbon and suit teens to adults.
A very sparkly mask! 

My miniature red and white Santa hats are made from felt and are mounted on an Alice band and set on the angle, they look so cute and are a really festive accessory for the holidays! 

If you would like to see more of my makes please click on the Etsy shop link to see my full collection of masks and mini hats etc..

Christmas party masks

Well ...I need to get busy making more Icicle masks as my stock has completely sold out!! :) 

I love making these masks as you probably have already realized, so watch this space as they say for more!

I am working on another gold one at the moment ..I will put pics up when it's finished, in the mean time I have finished a pretty black and pink ladies Italian Venetian style mask!

It has a mix of black and dark pink fluffy feathers, a black taffeta bow and lots of gems for extra sparkle, you can find it in my Etsy shop, it would make the perfect mask for your Christmas ball, prom or Masked New Years Eve party! 

Take a look in one or both of my shops, I have quite an eclectic selection of masks to choose from!

Christmas masks, Ice Maiden,Jack Frost and Bridal Chic!

Hi There! 

I have been busy making a glue mask, I love making these and they look so amazing on!! 
I use a hot glue gun and spread the glue over a non stick sheet with a template visible underneath so that I can trace around it.
I keep going until I have built up to the design I require and then I add glitter and acrylic gems.
These masks looks fab and even though they are made from hot glue they are perfectly fine to wear in normal room temperature. 
If you store them or wear them near direct heat such as spotlights and open fires ..they will start to go very soft and sticky, this is fine but it flattens them out and loses the shape ...which means you will have to reshape them again! :) 

Makes a fab Jack Frost or Ice maiden!

I also made this gorgeous bridal style masquerade mask, it is painted in white metallic and covered with faux pearls, fluffy marabou feathers and BLING!!!! 
Looks absolutely beautiful on and the fabric flower at the side sets it off just perfect! 
It is made from a pre-made sturdy pulp mask blank, so is light and comfortable to wear.

You can find my masks in my Etsy store or my little Folksy shop!
 Etsy store!

Thanks for looking, hope you find something you like or please share if you know someone that may be interested in my masks.

Getting busy for a Christmas fair!

Hi There! 

I have been busy making more mini Santa Hats the Christmas Holidays will be here before we know it!! ..these can be found in my Etsy and Folksy shops, I have also made a Poison Ivy themed masquerade mask, it sparkles nicely and looks fab on!! 

I bought some Worbla ..Worbla's Finest Art is an amazing product and so easy to use, just draw your design, cut it out and heat it, stick it together and mould it into the shape you require whilst still warm and soft. I used it to make this Mask which has now been coated with gesso and I have started to paint it in metallic colors ....pictures to follow!!!

This masquerade masks is really pretty and best of all ...the butterfly has an LED bulb which means there is a flashing light nestled near the feathers, ..how cool is that?!?

 Finally this week ..I have finished this beautiful black mask, it looks amazing on and is available in my Etsy shop too!

Beautiful Peacock Mask

I have been working on a peacock mask again, I did one a year or so ago and really enjoyed making it! 

This time I used some mod podge and a pretty serviette, I had to make sure it was different to my first one because as a rule I try not to repeat unless I get asked too!
I built plaster bandage over a plastic base and shaped a nice beak, but not as long and pointy as my first peacock mask.

When it was dry I painted it all over with acrylic and decorated it with glitter and gems, feathers and sequin trim.
The back is lined with soft white felt and the mask ties with long black ribbon.

 You can see that I managed to put the peacock head central on the mask, I quite like how this looks!

 The beak is gold and even though it is plaster based it isn't too heavy!
This is a comfortable mask and I would say fits a small or medium adult.

You can find this mask in my Etsy shop :)
