Black Silver Fantasy Wolf Mask by merimask Black Silver Fantasy Wolf Mask by merimask
I just finished this guy. He was a special order from my Etsy site; a Black Fantasy Wolf mask with silver highlights.

It's not at all blue (I hear that a lot from people who see pictures of my black masks)...it's black but slightly shiny, so it reflects the blue sky.

Carved as ever from one piece of 8oz leather, hand shaped without molds or forms, painted with Liquitex acrylics.

You can order custom masks like this, directly at my Etsy shop: [link]

I think this is similar to the one i bought from your Etsy store a year or two ago, you called it a Black Wolf Mask. Mine's got more silver on it's muzzle i think. I have it hanging on my wall and it is gorgeous. I collect wolf masks and i'm going to have to save up for a kitsune one on yours i think! Greetings from Western Australia and keep up the good work!

Love the near monochrome of the mask, really brings out the shape of the leather and all of the line-work!

Thank you. :-) I kept making the grey darker...it'd seem dark enough to me when I mixed it & then I'd put it on the mask & it'd look way too bright against the black. So, it took a few tries.

Thanks! Actually this mask is for a boy who is going to be the Big Bad Wolf (or something like that) in his high school play. Three cheers for mom who found me on Etsy & got her son a custom made mask. It'll be something he will hang on his wall & treasure forever...I just hope he doesn't bomb! ;-)

He's a bit too spiky to hug, but you can pet his nose...

y'know, maybe you could put a couple of black foam boards up around the mask out of range of the camera view to reduce the blue reflection and make the photo more accurate... Mask is lovely btw

I hear a good fix is a white photographer's umbrella. I suppose I could buy one online...I just always forget to do it. :-)

You can adjust the colour balance in Photoshop. I can tell you how if you wanna know. (I find the older a digital camera gets, the more the colour balance shifts...mine always go blue.)
