This is a new color variation on my popular "Verdigris Lion" design...The Black Lion.
Like all my masks, this is hand carved from 8oz leather, shaped without a mold or form, & painted with a combination of Liquitex acrylic paint and alcohol-based dye in black, with pewter paint drybrushed atop. The slightly silver cast of the accenting paint really sets off the carving.
By the way, I LOVE the way the black mask photographed against the backdrop of Fall leaves on the lawn. I wish that I could preserve those leaves somehow because I'd love to photograph all my black masks against them.
