Rio de Janeiro Masks

The masks are decorated with tissue paper which is glued on with medium glue lacquer and painted with glitter paint on top of the tissue paper or directly on the mask.

A beautiful combination of techniques
The masks are inspired by the colourful parade costumes of the carnival city of Rio de Janeiro, where no expense is spared on colours or glitter. The velvet surface of the masks catches the pigments of the glitter paint really well and dries beautifully.

1. Paint one half of the mask with glitter paint.

2. Cut out small pieces of tissue paper and glue it onto the mask.

3. Gently apply paint with a brush and make dots with a foam stencil brush.
