1.  Balinese inspired mask by Lisa of HiGirls
The mask measures 11 inches tall and is molded for dimension when hanging. I was inspired by fun painted masks from Bali and used a polymer interpretation with lots of tiny snips of clay in bright colors.

2. Jewel Toned Coiled Filigree Mardi Gras Mask by Angela of polymerclaycreations 
This Mardi Gras mask was made in the rich jewel tones of Premo pearl clay. The thin ropes were coiled and placed in an all over filigree pattern. It was textured lightly and finished off with a gold rub and buff wax coating.



3. Masked Mardi Gras Fox by Marie Young of YoungCreative
Marcelle, The Masked Mardi Gras Fox is set to party. She'll stand about 7 inches tall when she's done. She's waiting for her creator to add some dancing legs. Read more about how she was created: http://marieyoungcreative.com/masks-challenge/


4. Ms. Violet on Her Mask by Betsy of PolyClayCafe
Ms. Violet sits atop the world on her eye mask. Wearable for fun, or hang as wall art. Read more about the process and see other views on my blog polyclaycafe.blogspot.com/2015/01/ms-violet-on-her-mask.html

5. Teal and Purple Fiber Mask Brooch no. 139 by Susan of 11BOLDstreet

7. Funny Bone Mask by Beth of CreateMyWorldDesigns
Built upon a base of a turkey's breastbone. This polymer mask incorporates other armature for supporting it's creepy/weird/funny style! To read about the creation process of this piece, and how I used a process similar to a cast to fix broken pieces, visit my blog post: http://createmyworlddesigns.blogspot.com/2015/01/funny-bones-and-how-to-permanently-mend.html

8. Purple Passion Millifiori Mask Plant Stake by Arlene of Ashpaints
This mask started out with a purple base layer, then I pulled out my flower and leaf canes and used quite a few of them on this millifiori sheet. The final touch on the millifiori sheet was very thin slices from a spiral ghost cane. The millifiori sheet was carefully fitted over the base layer and trimmed out with purple "snakes" of clay. A wooden dowel fits into a special fixture on the back to make this mask the perfect companion to your favorite house plant.
