I had some leftover gumpaste and I finally bought paper mask at Michaels. Mardi Gras mask it is!
Surprisingly it was easier to make than I had initially thought. Obviously you can go really wild with all kinds of embellishments. Mask I made is pretty simple. I used airbrush to achieve dark purple color and simple texture mat from a craft store to give the mask some texture. I hope you enjoy this project and stay tune Mardi Gras Cake is coming next.
To make gumpaste Mardi Gras mask you need:
Gumpaste, make it from scratch – recipe using Gum-Tex
Gumpaste by Wilton – buy it already made
If you don’t have gumpaste you can also add Tylose to Fondant, knead it well and use it in place of gumpaste.
