Guy Fawkes and a quick doodle

October 30, 2008

For the past two nights, I’ve been working on creating a semi-accurate replica of the Guy Fawkes mask in V for Vendetta out of paper mache.  These are just a couple pictures I took to mark my progress.  I first sculpted the mold out of ordinary, run of the mill modeling clay:

The next step, as is obviously seen in the next picture, was the apply several layers of paper mache, made with a mix of water and carpenters’ glue:




And this (below) is just a quick doodle I did in class tonight of Pablo the bird.  He’s a bit strange, perhpas even psychotic, and he’s apparently madly in love with this bird feeder.  More to come on Pablo.

  1. I really like this style that you’re working with for your guys’ animation studio project! Its real cool! His expression is pretty much priceless.

    Hi! I also make masks this way, I wonder, what method do you use to prevent the paper sticking to the clay when it dries?
    I used vaseline, but it stayed with the paper once it dries, and can’t get it out now.
    Thanks! great work!

      Thanks for the comment! hope you enjoy the blog. Unfortunately, I’m probably not the best person to help you out; this particular mask is actually the only one I’ve made, and vaseline worked out pretty well for me.
