Description

The Life Mask

One Time, One Event, One Object.

With me you will be able to see yourself in a way that you have never been able to see yourself before, and hold that moment forever. Or give it away to someone you love, or care about.

Together we will make a three-dimensional Plaster of Paris mask of your own unique face in a safe, comfortable, relaxing and peaceful environment. Going though this process you will have a magical, one-of-a-kind experience and a gift to last a lifetime.

Throughout the year, I'm available to make a lifecast of your face in my Woodstock studio. I provide all materials.

Before registering and to learn more let's talk! You can reach me at (845) 943-0444.


The Death Mask - call or email for appointment

A death mask is a life-sized impression of a person's face immediately following death. The preservation of facial features in a death mask is a gift to the living and acts in a symbolic way to help us honor and understand a transition. For practical purposes, the process of making a death mask is the same as making a life mask, with one exception. As a family member of the deceased, you can assist in the maskmaking process. This offers an intimate way of saying goodbye to their physical body.

Throughout history, the need for us to memorialize those we love has brought about the creation of the death mask as a way to maintain the image that would otherwise fade with time. The mask enables us to connect to our deceased loved one--the look and feel of their skin, their expression and repose--and thus is a powerful tool for facing grief.

Throughout the year, I'm available to visit and get to know you and your loved one in your home or in a Hospice location. The price for this and a completed death mask is $300. Travel expenses are additional. To schedule an appointment, you can reach me by phone at (845) 943-0444 or by email at wendydrolma@gmail.com

End of life counseling and other services such as grief support are offered on an ongoing basis through the Black Plum Center in Chichester, New York.
