Finally got to work on my Hercules Beetle Mask. The whole mask will be gilded gold with both black and jade enamel. I still have to work on the wings and attach the bug parts.
New Mask on the Horizon.
Elisa and I are starting a new series based on beetles and other insects. This first one is a Hercules Beetle. I’ve posted my idea-then some of the bug parts (the two wings and the head piece). The group shot also includes the body carapace(the final design has the model’s face covered), the head piece, one wing cover and the legs. The mask is in the corner. The last two are the faux finishes with the enamel treatment in progress. Working on the wings and the legs-will post soon.
My wife and I are restarting the Tarot series now that both of us have evolved in our artistic execution. I will make the masks with my style of Victorian filigree and she will photograph them. I am REALLY excited.
Here are some sketches for the first mask:Sun. I also uploaded a pic of my devil mask to show how the sun may be painted to look (more gold though….). We are going to create the 22 major arcana………phew! Well, here we go……….
Octopus mask I did as a commission for Halloween two years ago for Erika Moen.
