1 - Mexican Inspired Polymer Clay Mask by Lisa of HiGirls
"This ornament was inspired by Mexican ceramic sun faces.
Entirely of polymer clay in a slight bowl shape, with seed beads added for a little sparkle."

2 - Moon Mask by Lyndell of Classons Creations
" Inspired by Venetian Masks and Native Moon Masks, this is a representation of what the man on the dark side of the moon would dream about if he could be bathed in sunlight. Golds, bronzes, and colours of the rainbow. His eyes are made from sea glass, a product of the tidal waters he controls. He measures 9-1/2" in diameter and hangs on the wall."

3 - Dragonfly Mystique by Arlene of Ashpaints
"I love texture and this mask is a combination of several layers of texture from the foundation piece that was cut and shaped over a sculpted face mold to the leaf and flower cane slices that edge the mask. Decorative swirls plus a nest of larger leaves and tendrils make a perfect place for this dragonfly to rest for just a minute."

4 -Fantasy Mask by Els of Beadelz
This mask was made with some left overs from the lasercut workshop with Jana Roberts Benzon. These leftovers had some kind of tribal look which worked great for a mask. The mask is a fantasy creation but with African/tribal and Aztec artefacts in mind. I never ever made anything like a mask or a face. I actually wanted to make a Venetian mask but that turned out completely different."

5 - Venetian Mask by Cindy of Arrowdale Art Studio
"My entry into this month's Challenge of the PCAGOE, Masks, this is my take on a Venetian Ball mask. All of it's clay with an application of Perfect Pearls for shimmer."

6 - Wake Up by Line of Play Sculpt Live
" I call it Wake Up! Her real identity is being taken over by another entity while she is sleeping."

7 -  Showgirl by Jackie of The Pleasant Pheasant
"The "Showgirl" Mask is my entry into the October 2011 Polymer Clay Artists Guild of Etsy's Monthly Challenge. This mask is about 3 inches wide by 4 inches tall."
