Cherished Memory Art:







  •  Portrait Masks with Virginia Abbott
  • Work from photographs and use clay to build a face mask. This is an easy way to learn the basics of sculpture and facial anatomy while focusing on bone structure and muscle shapes. A simple plaster mold is made followed by a portrait mask that can be cast in a variety of materials such as recycled paper. 
  • Disclaimer - this is not a plaster casting of your face. All experience levels welcome.
