Day of the Dead mask

I've been working on this new 'Day of the Dead'inspired mask.
Looking at paintings from the artist called Sylvia Ji who I found on the interent. I like the realist figures and possing mixed with the design, patterns and colours from mexican folk art. I'm thinking about adding colourful wool, blues and greens as hair and making a headdress to finish off piece. I took this mask head to my playground and the children I work with really like it which was a surprise as I thought it might spook them alittle!
