This is my world!

Hi, I'm Cheryl Daniel, a graphic designer, electronics technician and a lot of other things. Thank you for visiting yarbs.net. This is just a site about my stuff and my interests. I love history...especially U.S. presidents, science fiction, comics (superhero), graphic design, and classic cars.

Thomas Jefferson & James Madison Life Masks

Life Mask Facial Reconstructions of History

Before photography, life masks gave us the perfect likeness of people. Plaster was applied to the head and sometimes upper torso to create a mold to cast the life mask of a person. Using life masks, I was able to complete a forensic/academic study of how the subjects most likely appeared using Adobe Photoshop to add flesh, hair, and other details. See the life mask reconstructions of famous early Americans cast in plaster by John Henri Isaac Browere (1790—1834).
