Wide Eyed Loup Garou Mardi Gras Screen Mask
Mixed Media - Mixed Media
I was a young teen-ager when my grandmother showed me how to make the mask for the Courir de Mardi Gras. Today I teach my own grandchildren this craft. I hope that they wil pass down this craft for many more generations.
First I paint the screen for the mask. I then add fabric trim and ties. Most of my mask have large fabric noses. This one is one of very few that I have made without one. These mask are preferred when Mardi Gras falls on a warm day.
