Steampunk Kitty by Mary

Thanks for stopping by Gina's blog today! As you may already know, this month the team members are creating masks in celebration of Mardi Gras.   Gina designed four great masks for us to choose from.  Mine morphed into a steampunk kitty! I know! I don't do steampunk! This was my first attempt at it.

The mask I decided to use is the one in the top right corner.

As always, I began with a coat of gesso. Next, I cut different size squares of  3M foil tape, and placed  the squares over the surface of the mask. Using a stylus, I made an impression in the foil to creat a rivet look. I then took one of the steampunk hearts, bent it a bit, covered with the foil tape and attached it to the mask.

The gear boarder and corners were gessoed, sprayed with Lindy's, then embossed with silver and black soot. I used an emery board over the top of some of the gears to give it more of a distressed look, then sprayed them again with Lindy's. The swirl pattern is simply colored with a bic marker in black.

After attaching all the gears and boarders to the mask, I finished it off with metal gears, a clock face, feathers and flat back pearls.
