Masks are among the most archaic and universal forms of sculpture. Found across a vast number of cultures and eras.
Lovers of tribal art can take a wonderful stop tour to this historic indigenous art post. The diversity of various ethnic cultures will be shown here. All objects on offer have been used in ceremonial dances, in rituals of ancestral worship or in everyday life.
Things Required :
Mould and Paint Mask ( Blister Mould )
Plaster of Paris
Do it :
Mix Plaster of Paris in a bowl with Water ( Approx)
Make a Smooth Paste
Pour this Slurry in the Mould & let it dry for 45 mins or for an hour
The next step is to Paint it. ( I made a tribal face )
Make a small hole at the center of the mask.
Insert the string in the hole and now you are ready to go .
Now it the time to place it as Wall Decor .
See how beautiful it looks as wall decor 🙂 To make it look even more ethinic and historical i placed a puppet on the other side. 🙂 Stay Tuned for the next post.
I saw tiny clay pots kept on my kitchen window sill and the same night I saw owls made of those tiny clay pots in my dream. Next day without giving it a second thought and without any planning I just started making owl planters and viola!!! the result was awesome. See here they are :
Hobby ideas Shilpkar/M-seal
Carving knife/ craft knife
Clay pots (any size)
1. First wash the clay pots thoroughly and let it dry. Now You can apply a coat of varnish inside the pot to seal it.
2. Now prime the outside of the pot with white acrylic paint and let it dry. In below image you can see Hobby Ideas Shilpkar. It contains two packets, one is resin and the other is hardener. Take equal amount of both resin and hardener and mix them well.
3. Keep the plastic sheet on working area and dust it with talcum powder to avoid Shilpkar clay sticking to sheet. Now take a small amount of clay, put it on sheet and roll it out as shown in below image. For rolling you can use pen or pencil.
4. As I didn’t have a carving knife I used a craft knife to give shape and cut the clay. Though the carving doesn’t look neat when you use a craft knife. You can use something else like a toothpick, empty ball pen or anything else that can solve the purpose better.
5. Made two carved parts (left and right) and joined them. Then I took a small amount of clay, made beak of the owl and pasted it on carved clay. Now gently pick up the clay and paste it on the pot.
6. I made two different kinds of owls. It was hard to make features of Peter so I went easy on making Paul and gave it a simple look. When it is dried prime it too.
7. Now the last thing is to paint it in your desired colour and let it dry. You can give a protective coat of varnish if you wish. It’s done!!!
You can see the before and after of my tiny clay pots in the image below.
Stay tuned!!In my next Blog Post, I will be posting about my workspace makeover.

Before selling out for anything expensive, I always ask myself, is it really necessary for me to decorate my home with that particular stuff and if the answer is no I will never buy that stuff. I would rather love to make handmade decor pieces that will not only add the desired charm to my space but will also tell a story. But if the piece is extraordinary then it definitely comes home with me. Continue reading “Glass Bottle DIY”
