Experimenting with Venetian Masks

6 years ago 28
Posted in: Doll Accessories


I’ve finally found some time to play around with making one of a kind, enamelled Venetian masks. Just for my own fun. To relax and take my mind off Madame Pompadour doll, which is in its finally stages of completion. I’m planning a photo shoot for her in October. Anyway, I’m really liking the enamelling results though, and I might offer these as one of a kinds for sale when they are assembled. I’d like to try more colours and gradients first.

It’s really relaxing to do a project just for fun, without any deadlines, pressure and expectations. It’s a very therapeutic form of art therapy. I’ll go engage in some more therapy now.

Which colour enamel or gradient combination would you guys like me to try next?

    I love the white fading to pink, so pretty. I would love to see that beautiful robins egg blue in a mask. Definitely going to have to keep an eye on this spot in case they are offered up for sale!

    I love masks…. These are beautiful– very Ornate and magical. Seem Medieval yet Venetian. I too love the fading pink. Love the added glass too.

    They are such fun! Well of course, a green/purple gradation would be very “witchy” for Halloween! I really love the white and pink or gray/pink. A beautiful red would be wonderful too!

    Very mysterious looking–and beautiful. I love surprises, so any colors that would go well with auburn hair would be wonderful.

    Ooh I would love to see them all worn by dolls, it reminds me of the Marie Antoinette movie directed by Sofia Coppola, when Marie Antoinette sneaks off to the masked ball!

  14. Crystal says:

    I just want to say, I love the black mask too! I think it goes great with the gold.

  15. jacquelyn says:

    bronze and a deep golden yellow for today, Mabon, the Autumn Equinox. I do like that black and gold one, a black and silver would look cool too, kinda Gothic. whatever you come up with will be lovely, I’m sure
