B and W Persian Raven Mask by merimask B and W Persian Raven Mask by merimask
Here's something new. A Persian Raven in custom colors. It's for a Black & White formal ball (there seem to be a lot of those lately...or perhaps I'm just moving in different circles now).

As ever, hand-carved & shaped from one piece of 8oz leather. Painted with colorfast Liquitex acrylics in white, black & silver with a little red added for panache.

This mask was custom ordered from my Etsy shop. You can place a custom order there too! Just hurry though, 'cause holiday orders are piling up in there like crazy... [link]

There is nothing to dislike about this mask! The designs alone would be striking, but the bold contrast of the colours makes it even more eye-catching.

wow this is gorgeous! The raven design always looks awesome no matter what color scheme you choose for it. I'm curious if the little 'studs' are actually metal studs or did you just make little round dots in the leather and paint them ever so carefully? I'm loving the effect:) Very impressive geometry if those aren't studs!

My first Frost Dragon, the Copperhead Medusa (because I'll never be able to do that twice!) and for sentimental reasons, Tsuru. ^__^

I had to fav Tsuru because I've missed to do so :giggle:

Wow - this is really awesome. All of your masks are good, but this is really something special. At least for me. :D I love the colour-combination, and your Persian masks are my favourite to begin with - AND I have a weakness for birds - so this is really three-for-three.
