The Mirror Cracked challenge - make a mask

Woodware are again sponsoring The Mirror Crack'd Blog

The Craft Barn in South Nutfield stock these paper mache masks among other
wood and paper mache products ready to decorate.

The pack of seed beads and fine glitter come from Stix2 and I had some
large clear, flat backed gems in my stash.

I covered the mask with Dreamweaver silver embossing paste, half at a time
and decorated first with the large gems pushing them into the thick paste.

Then sprinkled the large beads over the wet paste, then the seed beads and finally the glitter.

Repeat with the other side taking care not to touch the other half as it will still be wet.

I guarantee you will have seed beads and glitter everywhere on your work surface, but hey...its great fun and the mask is really stylish and sparkly!
