When Bad Masks Happen good people.

This mask was going to be a mardis gras work of art! However, falling behind on my baking and running short on time (once again), I ended up rushing it and I absolutely hated how the paint job came out. HATE. I added a gold-painted dowel as the handle after the pictures were taken. The woman I gave it to loved it, and didn't believe I made it. She was still a hit at her party, though, with this one-of-a-kind mask.

Not my best work, but even the duds should be documented! This only goes to prove that you can't put lipstick on a pig!
