African Metal Masks - (6th)


  1. What did you mount these masks on? And how did you do it? Thanks.

  2. hi melissa, since I love this art idea and the outcome, I can only guess :Motives where drawn on metall foil with ball pen and embossed (other side of foil ) with the help of the razor side of a pencil and the help of flat objects), than mounted on cardboard with white or hot glue and then the design was continued with gouche or acrylic color and acrylic pens.Being an artist as well as teaching art to children I suppose that the works have been either created by very gifted little artists, or with a lot of help from a teacher who must be an artist by himself. Maybe there he also printed out samples of tribal art.
