Piles of masks

Find all these masks and many more at the Mardi Gras mask market today through Monday March 7th at the French Market in New Orleans: http://www.frenchmarket.org/events/ . We are sharing a booth with Dragonmaker masks, who you can visit online here .

Click the "Read more" link below for more photos of my masks. (Sorry about the un-rotated images there, I'll try and fix those later).

  4. Hi Monica! I've been a fan of your work for years, your masks are so beautiful! Please tell me though, how do you get them so symmetrical? Doesn't matter what I work on, I have to make it deliberately asymmetrical or it looks wrong!

  5. Thanks for your complements Dreamer. I think practice has helped my symmetry, but sometimes it can help to look at a sculpt upside-down or in a mirror to see the things that are off. Or you could print out a flipped photo of the sculpt, and sketch out the adjustments you want to make right on the paper. Good luck!
