Hello guys, I wanted to show you my latest WIP, it's a mask from the Noh Theatre, the demon of a jealous woman called Hannya.

I started from this references (the original are carved into a solid block of wood!)

I made a master out of water based clay

then I made a Gesso mold and i used fiberglass to make the cast. The horns are made with wood. Everything has got to be sanded and bondoed, but I'll post pictures as soon as I have updates!

Thanks! I forgot to say I had to made the sculpt in only one day! I was planning to have the mask completed for a Comic Con in Rome last weekend, but I couldn't finish it in time :S
