Anbu Mask

i have almost finished my mask. Had a few issues with getting it smooth - i used just papier mache as i have had issues in the past with clay. The glossy paint helps with the smoothness the only thing really bothering me now though (because im a perfectionist) is my shakey painting.

I did try stencilling but that still didnt work for me.

What do you think? Does it look okay?

You can get Gesso, it's a thick white paint. Paint it, let dry, and do a few layers. Once it's smoother all over, sand it down a ton. Thats what I did with mine.
I ended up spending a few days painting/sanding mine.
But yours is really good apart from the smoothness.
Tumblr? or Facebook?

Yeah, it's really hard to get smooth lines when painting. It gets all up in your head that it's permanent so it has to be perfect, so your hands decide to pull all the stops and shake everything up.

I don't think anyone would notice either from far away. Close inspection is always worse than a regular observer.
