How much do Venetian masks cost?
Making handmade Venetian masks can be a challenge, especially here in Venice where spaces are tight and supply materials can only travel through water.
Nevertheless is always a rewarding and great job, that is why Venetian mask-makers put so much passion and love into their creations.
Let’s see how they make them!
Venetian masks: how much do they cost and why?
The process begins with the sculpture of the mask starting from a handmade chalk mold. At this point, the craftsman designs the mask adding drawings and decorations.
Most of the models are made of papier-mache and decorated with precious materials like gold leaves, feathers, or gems.
Every single step of this fascinating work is entirely handmade, it can require from hours to weeks to be finished and it is 100% made in Italy guaranteed.
This is the reason why Venetian masks have an average cost from 30€ up to 400€, depending on the model you choose from.
Venetian masks: what are the different models and how much do they cost?
There are several models of Venetian masquerade masks and each of them requires a different amount of working hours and different kinds of materials.
