Unfinished - Behind the mask

Welcome steampunky friends,

toda a new challenge inspiration for this month at SanDee & Amelie's Steampunk Challenge  

 I would like to encourage you to leave some areas/parts of your creations unfinished or have them look unfinished! It should definitely not just look as if you had forgotten to finish your project off with some spots, but the unfinished (but maybe already primed or half treated) part should build a dynamic contrast or in any other way an important part of your project's composition or concept.
I am pretty sure there are a lot more ways I haven't yet thought of to interpret this challenge - so be daring and surprise me (as you mostly always do with all the fab projects you enter ;) and maybe yourselves as well!


It's carnival season and i love this fantastic mask from Venice.
                                           on the left side you can see the unfinished version

I recycled an old carnival mask
initially painted over with black gesso 
 and then covered with a few charms, brads and punched gears
the silver accents created with silver acrylic paint

unfinished version

The girls at SASPC have come up with some inspiring and different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and have fun!!
Hope to see you join in soon! 
Happy sunday!

LG Kerstin


  1. Einfach nur genial, liebe Kerstin!

    Deine Maske sieht so wunderbar edel aus und der Kontrast der leeren Hälfte zur toll verzierten macht sie wirklich besonders spannend anzusehen! Eine tolle Idee - und wie immer natürlich toll gemacht! Super!

    Hab noch einen schönen Sonntag!
