I've always wanted to try doing a mask, this is beautiful.

When you say it's a plain paper mask, did you buy it or make it?
How do you add varnish and not make the paper soggy?

I bought a blank paper mask in a $1 store, and then painted it. The paint design is my own.

The paper is maybe 1.5 times as thick as a cereal box, so it's fairly flexible, but still thick enough to withstand being varnished. It's only varnished on the front, as the varnish makes the mask much stronger, and tougher, but it's harsh on the skin, so the the back is plain paper, and is soft against the skin.

The one disadvantage of the varnish is that it has a yellowish tint and slightly discoloured the blue and green so it's not quite as nice as it was before varnishing, but it is now stronger, and splash resistant.

no word can explain what I feel by looking at this mask, the words are simply not enough to express my feelings. There are simply times, when words stop and the soul just feels ....

This is really cool! :D I'm curious: can it actually be worn, or is it too fragile?

It can be worn, and it's very comfortable to wear. The inside is paper so it's breathable. I varnished the front, so it's splash proof and gives added strength to it :D
