This mask is made from paperclay and modeled after the mask Bellatrix Lestrange wore in the HP movies. I created this as a present for a friend who is an even bigger fan than I am.
All in all it was pretty difficult to give away!
...since everyone keeps asking how long this took to make I decided to post the answer here.... The initial form took about an hour and then 2 days to dry. I then sanded for another hour or so and made some minor shape adjustments. After everything dried again, it took about 4 hours to paint and finish. All in all about 6 hours spread out over the course of 4 days.
