African Harrier Leather Mask by merimask African Harrier Leather Mask by merimask
Here's a new design I just finished this afternoon. Based on an exotic hawk with striking, bright coloring; an African Harrier.

As ever, this is carved and shaped from one piece of 8 ounce vegetable-tanned tooling leather. Painted with Liquitex acrylics.

This mask is available for a short time in my shop; [link]

Wow, how did I miss this mask? It's lovely!

The shape is great, and the instant I saw it I imagined it rendered as one of your Venetians....

Great work!

Gorgeous and realistic way to reduce this amazing bird to its essentials.

I love how bold the coloring is on this mask. Think you'd ever try a secretary bird?

And there we go.. the feathers have happened. I love the mask and i knew you could make the feathers look like feathers with out resorting to gluing (ugh) chicken fluffs to it. this is magnificent.

The eyes on this! So bright!! It almost reminds me of those secretary birds, with it short curved beak and bright eyes. I simply LOVE the colors on this one! He kind of has a grumpy face. >:c Lol. Great job!!!
