Comments by the Designer
I view mask design as something very closely related to makeup design and when the opportunity came to take a mask and puppet design course, I was excited to learn about world puppet and mask traditions. It was interesting learning different techniques such as papier-mâché, plaster gauze, thermal plastics, and soft sculpture techniques in creating a variety of projects.
Learning about mask design helped me understand this additional layer that creates the embodiment of a character with just the face and reinforces my knowledge of makeup.
