Embossed Metal Mask

Little Artists made a 26 gauge aluminum mask with embossing tools. The artists used symmetrical designs, exaggerated stylized features, elongated noses, use of geometric shapes and repeated pattern. Looking at examples of African masks artists pulled details such as coiled wire, yarn, raffia, and clay beads. Final masks were painted with acrylic wash rubbed with a bristle brush to give the masks a patina look.
