    Death mask by Bradley Perry French

    In class we were studying Brazil and street festivals. We saw lots of images of festival costumes and planned masks of our own design, based on what we had seen.

    I chose a death mask and worked with a narrow base, built up the features, then covered these with papier-mâché and paint.

    The hair was a challenge as I did not know how to plait and I knew I wanted plaits! My friend Amelia helped me out.
