I had the fun opportunity to paint a belly mask. A belly mask is a plaster mask that is formed on the body of a pregnant woman in her last stages of pregnancy. The belly mask is a reminder to both mom and child of this important stage.
My client asked me to let loose and have fun. I sent her a quick sketch and she said “go!” (my favorite!).
The surface had been diligently prepared by her husband, making it very easy to work with. After a handful of coats, the end product became fun and light.
