Sugar Masque : Goddess Tara

Id like to share with you my entry for the LaBal Masque Category in Oklahoma State Sugar Arts Show . I handsculpted mask using gumpaste. I was thinking using pastillage but pastillage will not give me enough time for defining the features. Unfortunately, it did not get any placement :-( . I only got a note from the judges admiring the work and the uniqueness, but they wanted more techniques applied to it other than just a small amount of Flower piping (piped roses of the headdress) and molded sugar jewelry. Its very understandable because it is true. The handsculpting took away time from me to do more piping techniques and more intricate hand manipulation of sugar paste. It travelled 3, 000 miles roundtrip and made it to and back home in one piece!!! I feel that this mask it has a life in it and that it whispers to me when I look in it… she is special …My Goddess Tara Masque.

That is ridiculous for it not to have placed. That is truly magnificent! Great job.

But it was nice to see that the audience were taking so much photos and angled and detailed shots of it. That response from audience was enough for me, now that i think about it, it makes me happy…

Elli, Thanks! Iam proud of the mask even with no ribbons to take home, just seeing the crowd take pictures was just as rewarding as the take home ribbon…
