DIY painted mask, lucha libre style


Such a warm day today, too hot to start a new painting, so I decided to start on this little mask. Instead of going with the traditional dod designs I thought it would fun to mix it up a little and try a lucha libre design. Turned out cute I think. I used craft grade acrylics and a paper mache mask from Michaels. I started by painting the mask white with gesso and then sketched my design and then painted it. I am embellishing with glitter... I think it needs a little sparkle. Not quite finished so I'll post a final picture once it's done.
