Death Mask - Anino (2013 Silicone Mask)
Death Mask - Anino (2013 Silicone Mask)

Symbolism: Losing the innocence, wonder, and playfulness of our childhood selves as we grow older.

Here is another heavily modified death mask of my own face. The organic flesh like texture surrounding the face is made from thickened ecoflex silicone 50. The horns were first created using tape and bunched up newspapers, I then covered them both using thickened silicone. The makeshift bandanna was made using silicone in which I let dry on a board, in thus creating a large thin cast.

Main Materials Used: Ecoflex Silicone 50, NSP Chavant Clay Soft, Silicone Pigments, and Fiberglass Plastic
