Aqua and Cream Fighting Fish Mask by merimask Aqua and Cream Fighting Fish Mask by merimask
I wasn't sure if I wanted to sell this one because I fussed and fussed over the fins. Must have laid about six layers of various blues, teal and aqua before adding a metallic coat and tipping the points with cream. Sometimes I just get waaaay too caught up in the details.

Anyway, my newest Fighting Fish mask IS available here ---> [link] until it is gone. Probably won't be making too many like this one...it took twice as long to paint as it should have.

Made entirely by me, entirely by hand. Leather, acrylic paint, love and (apparently) an unhealthy obsession with aqua and teal. ;)

May I have a question? How thick leather do you use...I always wondered this :)
Keep up your amazing and inspiring work :)

Thanks! I think so too. I love warm rich tones (like gold and brown) next to jewel tones. I even used a brown wash over the cream fish bodies so the scales would have a bit of brown in them too.
