You could use color theory and symbolism when expressing the characteristics of Antigone in a mask. Some possible things to include could be:
Heart: to symbolize her love for her family;
The color red: to symbolize Antigone's courage;
Rosebud: to symbolize Antigone's youth femininity;
Tear drops: to represent her grief over how her family has been ripped apart by tragedy;
The color blue: also to represent a state of mourning.
Black: to represent the theme of death in the play and also to foreshadow Antigone's own death.
I included a link below about color symbolism.
Purple: to symbolize royalty. Antigone's father was King Oedipus.
