The Mask Phase 2

I bought this wonderful fabric some time ago as I was looking at doing a series on fish but it seemed like this was a good use for it. I should have left the plaster to dry a bit longer before applying the fabric but it has come out OK. I have painted the inside with PVA (white glue) to strengthen it. Obviously this is now going to have an undersea theme so I have been searching out embellishments which might add to the mask. Still tying to get brave enough to do my own portrait mask by putting the plaster gauze on my face. For any that are interested I have put up the individual blocks of the NZ Baltimore quilt on My Quilts page of this website.
