Black Unicorn Mask by merimask Black Unicorn Mask by merimask
I've been busy filling orders, but I found time to create a new design; Black Unicorn Mask.

Made from one piece of hand carved, hand shaped leather and painted with Liquitex acrylics. I decided to add some gold drybrushed details to the face (to accent the carving just a bit) and gave it a deep blue metallic mane and a bright gold horn.

This is a signed, dated, numbered original; Black Unicorn #2.

Available (until she is gone! But you can always request another) in my Etsy shop here: [link]

Definitely can see the kinship with a kelpie, but you've also captured the perfect LOOK that portrays unicorns the way I think they really would be.. Delicate but something that could be a fearsome opponent too =)

Nice change! I do like the gold touches on the head. Also very happy to see you don't have to fear the unicorn boy anymore!

Interesting design. :) I like the blue and the gold together - they work well together, and really well against the black.

This looks like a serious theatre-mask, actually - like something you'd wear in a Greek drama, or something. Definitely prefer it to your unicorn half-masks (which aren't bad by any stretch of imagination - it's just that they're a bit too... frilly for me. I'm not a frilly kind of girl. :P).

Thank you! :-) I totally agree. The short masks are great for parties, but this one is more of a sculptural thing.

Maybe it's just the eye shape, but he looks kind of evil. Evil unicorn! He's got a nice mane, though. :)

If it didn't have a horn, I'd be scared that a Kelpie was out to kill me.

Beautiful mask, I definitely like this one much better than the Unicorn half-mask.

Yes, true...it is Kelpie-ish with the swirling blue mane. Hmm...that's not a bad idea really! A blue/black Kelpie with a seaweed mane...!

I definitely love the look of this one more then the froo-froo-y one with the feather mane ( not to say its not good ). Ive always adored the spirals in the leather and the rich deep colors you use. Great job!

Thank you! :-) Yeah...this is really more like "my style". The short half mask unicorns are fun party masks, and affordable, but this one is more like art.
