Venetian Mask - La Bauta
Plain Venetian papier mache full face mask with pointed chin, ready to decorate. Length 18cm.
Our Venetian masks are imported from Italy and are made in the tradition of the Commedia dell'arte. They are papier mache finished with gesso, a white paint mixture consisting of chalk, gypsum and pigment (or any combination of these) mixed with a binder. Gesso is used in artwork as a preparation of paint or other decoration - so is an excellent base for your own mask decoration.
