I’m taking a short break from sewing but I’m making something new. I’ve always wanted to make a Blythe-size Venetian mask for a while, so I started working on a prototype. The first one is a cat!
I had an opportunity to research TONS! to make some human size animal mask last year. It was so much work especially I sort of had a tight deadline as well. But I feel like it’s finally paying off because it’s much easier this time and to work on a mini size. So far it’s coming along fast.
I still want to run more tests since this mask WILL scratch Blythe’s precious face plate if it’s worn as-is. I don’t think I can use hard surface or I need to be more creative somehow. I’m going to make a negative mold this week and I’m planning on trying out traditional Venetian mask making method. Hope it works out… It’s still so much fun though <3
If everything works out, I will be adding Blythe-size Venetian masks to my “for sale” item list at BCNY. Stay tuned and wish me luck!
