What to Expect

1- Choose one mask and the decoration techniques among the many available.
There are over 60 models of white Venetian masks to be painted available, all handmade in papier-mâché and of all possible categories.

2 - Decorate the mask in an absolutely free and creative way or, prefer, you can reproduce one of the many examples that are exposed.

3 - Choose the finishes

You will use acrylic tempera, beeswax and water-based paint for the finish, metallic colors like gold, silver and copper for the final touch. All materials are absolutely safe and non-toxic.

4 - Take away the decorated mask.

The masks decorated at the end of the course are dry and are packed with every precaution so that they do not become damaged during transport.

The ABC course is suitable for children and adults. Thanks to the various decorative techniques available, children can independently participate from 4 and a half years up, but if a parent helps them there is no age limit. Adults can experiment with different types of professional and never dull decorations.

Response from CaMacana, Manager at ABC Mask Decoration Courses
Responded 4 weeks ago
Hello Tallcat, thanks for your review. After painting your mask, in our courses, there is the possibility to use different materials such as feathers, strass, trimmings, and paper for the decoupage. This is part of our standard offer. The masks decorated in our workshops are immediately dry so that it possible to add the mentioned materials. If we did not offer you these options, I apologize and I invite you to come once more with a discount. Best regards, Davide Belloni
