I finished another Day of the Dead mask yesterday! I was inspired by the Mariposa Skeletons so I gave this one a butterfly mask.
I drew the butterfly freehand and then painted it in with Golden Fluid Acrylics.
I layered my colors until I was happy with all of the shading and highlights then added all of the white dots. I think they're what really bring the butterfly to life.
Originally I thought that I was going to use magenta as my accent color but then I changed my mind. So that's why there is a single magenta flourish. The rose I used is by Stampendous.
I added my signature flourishes all around. I felt like I hadn't flourished in a while, lol.
I punch holes on the sides then install a grommet to add the satin ribbon for hanging.
And there you have it, Mi Marisposa (My Butterfly)!!
Thanks so much for stopping by, have a FABULOUS holiday weekend!!!
