Today several friends from the Wellington Improvisation Troupe came round to have their faces cast in plaster, using expired dental alginate (so pink and minty) to make the moulds. It was hard, fun messy work! Now I have the task of cleaning up of the faces to do, and then in a few weeks there’ll be a mask making workshop. Yee-hah!

A while back I ran away from a twentymumble-year corporate career to be a feckless art student. Since then I've dirtied my hands with, metaphorically and/or literally, bronze and ceramic sculpture, photography, and digital and traditional illustration. Mask making was one discovery, dovetailing with my interests in teaching and performing improvised theatre. View all posts by alittleart
