This coming Thursday is the Fall Gala (and auction fundraiser) for AIGA San Francisco. I’ve made two masks, one for play and one for rest.
For the first I used some thinner masking tapes I recently purchased to cover the supplied mask.
I knew for the second mask that I wanted to use wool, a material I’ve been exploring lately, to felt a pattern that could mimic the first mask.
Some people might be getting wool felted sleeping masks for Christmas…
I couldn’t resist trying out a masking tape technique on some baby pumpkins.
The spider is left over from a past costume. It’s made from an origami ballon attached to paper rolled in tubes that are then bent to create the legs.
Creating the card pattern.
Adorning an envelope.
Unfortunately I’m missing a pic of the next step. I used this green tape as a guideline for lining up the second piece of blue striped tape. It’s easily removed after.
